Get to know Charleston today with my guide to attractions that will last the better half of your “daycation.” Charleston is not just the name of a dance from the 1920’s, it’s a place to be in the 2020’s. 

Charleston and I are old friends. I used to call him “Chucky City” which was a nickname that hurt our friendship. Now he goes by a new name but between you and me, he’s still the same old Chuckville we all know and love. I can prove it too.

Here’s the best Charleston has to offer that might turn your “daycation” into a “staycation.”

Fossil Hunting Eco Tour

10 million years ago, volcanic ash blanketed a thriving prehistoric habitat on Morris Island, Charleston. The artifacts of this time have been sealed away only to be discovered by scientists and now, you. Join the hunt where you’ll motorboat the uninhabited waters and the island where great beasts once roamed. Your guide will teach you the history and help you uncover the abundance of ancient fossils. Where was this when I was a kid?!

Private Boone Hall Plantation Tour

An all-out adventure into the heritage of the Antebellum south. You will see every square inch of this beautiful property in the comfort of familiar company and a trusty, fun-loving tour guide. Includes a guided house tour, plantation coach tour, plantation garden tour, a meal at the Butterfly Cafe, and much more. Trust me, you’ll ask for an application before you leave.

Boone Hall Plantation is one of America’s oldest working plantations, continually growing crops for over 320 years. 

Private Magnolia Plantation Tour

This private experience will make you want to move into the mansion with the oldest, privately owned gardens in America. Behold the door-to-door limousine service that elevates your day trip experience to meteoric heights. Includes a scenic river walk, an ancient Indian mound, the beautiful conservatory, a meal at the Peacock Cafe and lots more. Not too shabby.
