Visit Patriot’s Point – This incredible naval museum is located at the mouth of the Cooper River. This landmark, housed in an aircraft carrier includes a Vietnam Experience Exhibit, a Cold War memorial, and a Medal of Honor museum.

Take a Harbor Cruise – A cruise through the harbor is definitely one of the most laid-back ways to explore Charleston’s waterways. Soak in the seabreezes, relax, and unwind with a view of many historically significant sites including Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie. Insider’s tip: Keep your eyes peeled and you will spot bottlenose dolphins swimming nearby.

Hit the Beach – Charleston has five pristine beaches, each one with their own personality. While hitting the beach is always a good idea, choosing where to go is another story. Learn more here about our two favorite beaches: Folly Beach and Sullivan’s Island. Soaking in some sun on the beach is a very popular activity on Memorial Day weekend in Charleston. Insider’s tip: Head out early to beat the traffic!
