Charleston, a port city founded in 1670, is a magical place with deep roots that trace as far back as anywhere in America. Defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, and antebellum houses, particularly in the Battery promenade and Waterfront Park that both overlook Charleston Harbor, and at Fort Sumter, the iconic spot where the first shots of the Civil War rang out. Our historical tours are among the best things to do in Charleston!
