About Charleston

An idyllic city with quaint moss-covered and time-washed buildings, Charleston offers plenty of scenic sights and culturally significant destinations to explore. The highlights of this amazing city are its cobblestone streets and hauntingly beautiful mansions (some are even rumored to be actually haunted). The best way to enjoy these timeless relics is to take a walking tour around town, with or without a local guide. As you enjoy your walking tour, don’t miss out on the chance to explore The Battery, which features some of the most photogenic spots in the entire city. This quarter used to be the center of all maritime activities in the city, but it is now a famous tourist area. The nearby White Point Garden, which houses interesting Civil War-era relics, is also a great destination.
