Historic Houses & Sites near Charleston & Savannah.

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip with friends to Charleston SC for early November. I thought I might go a few days early to spend time in Savannah but the more I learn, the less I'm convinced that I'll like it enough to stay long, so may just spend a day there.

My question is this: I love visiting historic houses and spending time in small towns and the countryside. I see there are 3 well-publicized "plantations" to see outside Charleston and wonder if there are more in the area between the 2 cities. Or interesting small towns of historic significance that might be worth cruising the back roads to see.

This will be my first visit to the area and possibly my last. I don't need to see everything and prefer the less gussied up versions to the overly restored. I intend to do more research in the months remaining before I go but any particular favorites will be most appreciated.
