Why locals will love it: If you’ve ever caught yourself walking along The Battery trying to get a glimpse inside the multi-million dollar mansions that look out over the harbor, this is the tour for you.
Every fall, the Preservation Society of Charleston hosts a fall tour of stately homes (happening this year through October 30th), which gives you a glimpse on how the other half lives in the Holy City. Choose between a South of Broad tour, Upper Tradd Street tour, or Gardens of Ansonborough tour and prepare to gaze in awe at the impressive architecture, design, and landscaping of these old, multi-million dollar historic homes and gardens. You’ll never look at your one bedroom apartment the same way again.
Why locals will love it: If you’re in dire need of new head shots, engagement photos, or just a stunning new profile pic, this is the perfect tour to take. Rather than visiting the same old historical landmarks, this trip also takes you to the most picturesque parts of Charleston that aren’t found in many guidebooks.
