With a temperate climate, May and September are great months to plan a trip to Charleston whilst avoiding the busy summer months. Charleston time zone is GMT -5.
With an abundance of church steeples punctuating the skyline, it is easy to appreciate how Charleston got named The Holy City. Once a place of refuge for various religious faiths, Charleston residents remain warm and welcoming and a visit to one of its many churches is a must. One option for exploring the city by foot is taking a self guided tour such as the Charleston Museum Mile which takes in the sights of the Meeting Street corridor, the market area and all the historic locations in the vicinity.
