Road trip from Virginia to Charleston, SC

My friend & I are planning a trip from Virginia to Florida. For the first leg, we plan on stopping and spending the night(possibly 2) in Charleston, SC. We want to take our time and stop at different, local, slightly bizarre, fun places/destinations along the way. We don’t mind detouring and going off the main route to see/experience a really cool place/spot/destination. We both enjoy history. We enjoy old cemeteries. We would appreciate any and all suggestions and tips. Thanks!!

Not sure what your time will allow but the City of Georgetown (South Carolina) about 75 miles north of Charleston on highway 17 is a great town to spend a few hours. I would suggest a visit to the Rice Museum and the South Carolina Maritime Museum. Also nearby are the Hampton Plantation State Historic Site and Hobcaw Barony. And the drive from Georgetown to Charleston down US17 is somewhat scenic and less hectic than the interstate. There are many old churches nearby with historic cemeteries.

For sure spend some time in Charleston, you will love it! You can take a carriage ride around the city, take a boat out to Fort Sumter National Monument and just stroll down The Battery and look at the beautiful houses. You can overload on history there!
