Charleston is full of historic sites for Civil War enthusiasts.

Fort Sumter is where the first shots of the Civil War were fired, and inside this imposing seaport there's a museum full of artifacts, plus well-preserved cannons. Arrive at the fort in style on a restored paddle steamer, and enjoy a guided tour of the harbor, where you might spot playful dolphins.
