Charleston is steeped in old southern tradition and charm, and guests of our Holiday Inn Express® Charleston hotels will enjoy the historic sites, beautiful beaches and savory cuisine of this laid-back seaside escape.
Take a carriage ride through the French Quarter or leisurely wander the streets of historic downtown Charleston. There’s upscale shopping on King St. and $5 souvenirs in the old City Market. Survey Charleston’s beautiful antebellum homes from the waterfront promenade of Battery Park. The Battery also offers excellent views of Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the U.S. Civil War were fired.
Charleston’s magnificent plantations are little farther out, but a must-see during your Charleston hotel stay. Settled by Major John Boone in 1681, Boone Hall was used for background shots in the classic southern film “Gone With Wind”. History buffs will enjoy a trip to Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in nearby Mt. Pleasant. Tour the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier or check out the fully reconstructed Vietnam camp which highlights the U.S Navy’s contributions during the Vietnam War.
Take advantage of our Charleston hotels proximity to some of South Carolina’s best beaches. The water starts to warm up in the late spring, so if you’re looking to do some sunbathing or surfing during your trip, be sure to book a room between May and September. Of course, anytime is a good time for a low country boil, and easygoing Folly Beach is an ideal location to have a beach cookout. If you’re craving some more “upscale” seafood fare, head back into town for she-crap soup or local Wreckfish.
