Some plan road trips to get away, some rent cars to explore new places. One Pursuits photographer who searches for “visual paradises” to photograph highly recommends Charleston, the port city founded in 1670. Additional historic cities, broad beaches, forested backroads, championship golf courses, rushing waterfalls, lush gardens — South Carolina offers all that, and you get 10 months of warm weather as well.
