      Head to Charleston. Situated on the southeast seashore of the state, Charleston is rich in history. Posh bed and breakfasts, svelte little shops and old-time markets provide entertainment for the most discriminating traveler. Stroll along the Battery and see pre-Civil War era houses, world-renowned for their array of pastel, Caribbean-like colors. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the streets at night and pretend you are an aristocratic rice farmer. Visit one of the handfuls of restored rice plantations in the area to understand the scale and staggering workload it took to keep these businesses running. Catch some waves at nearby Folly Beach or on the Isle of Palms.
