Attractions:

*** Visit the formal gardens near Charleston. The section of U.S. 61 between Charleston and Summerville is home to some of the most beautiful gardens in the world.

Former plantation land has been transformed into botanical wonderlands at Magnolia (800-367-3517).  Middleton Place (800-782-3608) and Drayton Hall (843-769-2600) and the buildings are pretty spectacular too.

The colors are most grand in the spring, but these old plantations are special year round.  The guided tours help you to understand the history and the natural wonders.

*** Watch a sunrise from an oceanfront fishing pier. Piers jut out from dunes all along the state's coast, and they provide venues for more than fishing.  They are great places to watch the sun peak above the horizon in the morning or slip below it later in the day.  One of the best piers for sunrise is the Edwin Taylor Pier at Folly Beach.  It's free to walk on the county owned structure, and its positioning allows a view of the sun coming  coming up over the waves without massive hotels in the foreground.

They call Folly Beach the Edge of America.  The pier goes out another 1,045 feet.  For more information call 843-795-4386.

*** Spend the night and dine at The Woodlands Resort and Inn in Summerville.  The Woodlands is the state's only five-star restaurant.  Menus change daily and incorporate the freshest ingredients from local farmers and fisherman.

A day spa and luxury accommodations at the resort invite visitors to stay long past dinner.  The resort is at 125 Parson's Road.  For more information, call 843-875-2600.

*** Experience the movies in a whole new way at the Charleston IMAX Theater. A five-story screen and 44 speaker digital surround sound offer viewers a larger than life experience.  The theater is the only 3-D complex in the state, though it also offers standard two-dimensional movies.

The Charleston IMAX Theater is located at the Citadel Mall in West Ashley.

*** Two places to see the ancient basket weaving is at small stands along US 17 North leading out of Charleston and the Old City Market in downtown Charleston, South Carolina.

Originally, the baskets were made for practical purposes.  Now, the baskets are prized more for their beauty.  Skilled artisans work for hours, days and even months weaving sweet-grass into all shapes and sizes.  Baskets range in price depending on size, patterns and vendors.

The stands along the highway are usually manned seasonally during the warmer weather.  The Old City Market in downtown Charleston is open from dawn to dusk all year round.

*** The Citadel's picturesque campus sits on the banks of the Ashley River in Charleston and is open to visitors year round.

Visitors can watch uniformed cadets in the private military college march each Friday during the academic year in the Citadel Parade.  other campus attractions include Summerall Chapel and the Citadel Museum.  The school is 171 Moultrie Street, Charleston. For more information call 843-225-3294

*** Fort Sumter, the target for the first shots of the Civil War now is one of the top tourism destinations in South Carolina.  Citadel cadets fired on the fort in the middle of the Charleston harbor in 1861, and Federal forces surrendered the structure 34 hours later.

The National Park Service tells the story of the fort and the war that split the young country with exhibits at its mainland visitors center in Charleston and at the fort.  For some children, the best part about visiting the fort is the boat ride to the fort.

And while you are in the military mood, drive across the Ravenel bridge to Sullivan's Island and visit Fort Moultrie, site of the first major battle of the Revolutionary War in South Carolina.
