Description

This 2-hour stroll through history starts at Waterfront Park and heads south to the famous battery. From there we spend some time relaxing in the shade of 300-year-old Live Oak trees as the cool ocean breeze keeps us comfortable – and we talk about the very colorful history of White Point Gardens.

Always on the shady side of the street – we stroll up Meeting Street past its beautiful mansions, down several other history packed avenues revealing everything from slave markets, to massive churches, historic theaters, and even the very balcony George Washington stood on just 227 years ago.

Of course, along the way we’ll see beautiful window boxes, tall stately homes, and no shortage of buildings where much of the history you read about in school actually happened.

When we’re finished. We’ll end up very close to where we started. None the worse for wear, and the proud new owners of the most valuable souvenir you can bring home – knowledge.

We start out by the water, walk mostly in the shade - and take as many breaks as people may need. Please keep in mind. We’re not walking fast, and we take our time. However, Charleston isn’t known for its straight and level sidewalks – that’s why we don’t recommend wheelchairs and walkers on a tour like this. Strollers are fine. However, young children may need a little extra care on the narrow sidewalks.  

It’s very hot and humid in in Charleston this time of year. In addition to comfortable walking shoes, and a great attitude - you may want to bring a bottled water.
