Civil War sites and iconic plantations, Fort Sumter boat tours and horse-drawn carriage rides clacking down cobblestone streets offer a taste of the past while mile after mile of soft white-sand coastline delivers five beautiful beach enclaves, yachting, fishing and acclaimed golf courses. A walk down King Street unveils locally owned and high-end boutiques and the Saturday morning Marion Square farmers market is the place for local produce and artisan crafts.
