Charleston's Most Beautiful Walk
Nothing says "Southern Charm", like a walk through Charleston, South Carolina. You can just imagine being a character from "Gone With The Wind". Watch as the Spanish Moss sways from the Gran daddy oaks lining the streets, and parks. It is a beautiful city of the days gone by, that time has not touched.
See the remnants of the original, "Od Walled City", walk past gorgeous old mansions,the Villa Margherita and Lower Church Street. Smell the magnificent blooms the from beautiful White Point Gardens. If you listen real hard, you may hear the ghost of Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd at the Thomas Rose House. Don't forget Catfish Row, a beautiful three story building with an archway arcade through the center. It is rich with history as is all of Charleston. There's even "The Heyward", where George Washington, once slept.
There is so much to see and do while in Charleston. This tour is a must, to slow down and really learn about Charleston. The tours are in small groups, hosted by a very knowledgeable guide to ensure you learn everything before you are through. There is a bit of walking involved, so be sure to wearing comfortable clothing and shoes. The tours are offered on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sundays mornings at 10:00AM, and takes about two hours. All ages are welcome. The cost is $25.00, and is well worth it.
Make sure to stop by one of the local restaurants to enjoy a wonderful southern home cooked meal.
