What do you all know about Agecroft Hall in Richmond? The pictures of it look amazing, but the one review I read on Trip Advisor made it sound like a waste of time. Comments?

We used to live in SC, and I went to Charleston on field trips while in junior high school.

Places that I enjoyed visiting: Ft. Sumter, Drayton Hall, Middleton Place, the market square, and Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

I'm in Augusta, GA and have been to both Charleston and Savannah many times (we're about 3 hours away from both). For both, it's always the most fun to stay as close to the older parts of the city as possible -- especially if you are interested in the historic places (and, considering what this forum is all about, I imagine you are!!) When you stay in those areas, you can usually walk to many places of interest.

Depending on the length of your stay and how important hotel amenities are to you, you might want to check out http://www.vrbo.com/ (Vacation Rental by Owner) instead. We've used this in both Charleston and Savannah as well as other places and have never been disappointed.

Right now, many hotels are cheaper and, sometimes, you can also dicker with the owners on VRBO for better prices.
