Charleston, South Carolina has to be one of the worlds most walkable cities! This historical city which boasts some of the prettiest streets, which has some glorious old houses, has charm and beauty in bucket loads. One can off course take a mini bus tour which allows one to view some of the glories on view. However, in my humble... More

We only spent about 5 hours in Charleston, it was a very hot day. City is a good walking city except for the uneven sidewalks, which we find to be uncomfortable to walk on. We went to Market street, most items in there are junk. Do not bother to even look at most of it, a lot of stuff made... More

We spent a delightful ten hours in downtown Charleston, taking a carriage ride, visiting the Charleston Market, walking the streets, touring some of the homes, savoring the local cuisine, and ending the day at the Sound of Charleston concert at the Circular church on Meeting Street. A wonderful experience.

Whether you walk about, take a carriage ride or just motor slowly around, every corner turned brings with it a unique new sight. From the spectacular waterfront to the quaint market area... More

If you've visited Charleston before you probably have taken the carriage tours. And if you know anything about Charleston history you were either shocked or amused at how the history is both butchered and "modified." So when my wife and I visited Charleston recently I wasn't too sure about another tour, especially a walking tour (it has been brutally hot).... More
