Scenic Architecture of Charleston, SC
A carriage ride through downtown Charleston is a great way to learn about it's history. Many influences over the past 300+ years have shaped today's "Holy City" such a unique place - the early English and Spanish settlers, Pre and Post Civil War reconstruction, a major earthquake in 1886, and in 1989 a Category 4 Hurricane named HUGO.
As Charleston was our home in 1989, I remember the destruction to the City and surrounding communities. Obviously a week or two without power and water (and the loss of our "Anniversary Cake" that melted in the freezer) was minor in comparison.

But if you REALLY want a history lesson, please ask for Myron at Palmetto Carriage Tours. We had a private carriage ride (for 4) and not only got some great pictures but learned a lot about the city that we had either forgotten, or never learned while we were living here.

Without a doubt, Charleston (especially when we stay in Kiawah!) is our favorite place to visit.
