Tour-Pleasing Charleston
High times in the Low Country

Tour Fort Sumter The Civil War began with a thunderous 1861 Confederate bombardment (and conquest) of this
Union fort in the city's harbor. Today your group can tour
the fort with SpiritLine cruises. For group discounts, call
(800) 789-3678.
Dig Drayton Hall One of the nation's best examples
of Georgian-Palladian architecture, this plantation house
has been restored to its Revolutionary-era glory. Enjoy
the 250-year-old live oaks, a Victorian garden mound, a
reflecting pond, and even a ha-ha, a landscape barrier
created to keep sheep from wandering.
Chow Down Here in the "Holy City" (Charleston's
nickname), there's heavenly dining. Noisy Oyster Seafood
calls itself the city's best restaurant and serves fresh seafood
at two locations. For BBQ, dive into a slab at Sticky Fingers.
Smell the Roses National Historic Landmark
Middleton Place has 65 acres of ravishing roses, centuriesold winter-blooming camellias, fiery azaleas, mighty
magnolias, and vivid crepe myrtles. Landowner Henry

DESTINATIONS

/ JULY-AUGUST 2014

Middleton created the gardens in 1741 in strict conformity
with the prevailing rules of logic and symmetry to create
avenues of order, geometric balance, and surprise.
Flock to a Festival The city's famed performing arts
Spoleto Festival USA, held in May and June, features opera,
theater, dance, and several genres of music. Perhaps less
well known but equally enchanting is Christmas in Charleston. Highlights include parades, a festival of lights, shopping
in the historic market, and tours of historic homes.
