If you're looking for a last minute spring break destination that's a drive away and more affordable than a week on a tropical beach, Charleston, S.C., might be the place to stay.
Charleston, which fosters a blend of contemporary culture and a sense of historical pride, fulfills the label of a college town, offering an array of busy bars, chic stores, art galleries and impressive beaches.
Daniel Jones, a travel agent at the AAA Mid-Atlantic Southside Richmond office, said Charleston is a popular destination nationwide, and is a well-known city internationally as well.
