My wife & I are in our late 50s. We are arriving at Charleston airport at around 11:30 and staying at the Andrew Pinckney Inn for 2 nights (Saturday & Sunday) and than driving down to Savannah on Monday for 2 nights at the Doubletree Hotel Historic( Monday & Tuesday) than driving to Fernandina Beach/Ameilia Island Wednesday for 2 nights (Wednesday & Thursday).
When in Charleston I want to see Middleton Place (with either Lunch or dinner) & Magnolia Plantation & Gardens(including a swamp tour). How much time should I allow for each & what days would you recommend to see them? Should I also try to include Drayton Hall when I go to Middleton?
I would also want to see Fort Sumpter.
Can anyone recommend how best to time these visits/activities and what else we might want to see while in Charleston? I thought we would include some sightseeing in Charleston on Monday till around 2 or 3PM before we head out to Savanannah.
Are there additional sights tours etc that are must sees? How about house tours & walking tours?
As to restaurants I thought one meal lunch or dinner at Middleton place and one meal at Cru Cafe (lunch or dinner?). that leaves 3 other meals. Any other recommendations? I would like some places that offer local cuisine and/or with views/ambiance, seafood also a plus.
