When my brother Steven used to live in Charleston, SC we used to go to all sorts of places within the city. Off the coast there's an island where a fort was built. During the civil war Fort Sumter was the first place where it all got started. So it has a lot of historical value for those who wish to visit. Just be warned, the boat ride there is pretty painful. You get on this medium sized boat, and you can literally feel every wave that goes underneath the ship. Also the first time when I knew what sea-sickness was first-hand, because I almost threw up.
