Tour Charleston
http://www.tourcharleston.com
Tour Charleston is the original Charleston Ghost Walk. This tour goes into the Unitarian Garden. Sometimes you'll catch me giving this tour! Highly Recommended!

Every day my guests ask for suggestions for things to do. I always suggest that they get out on the water. One great way to do that is with a water tour with the folks at Charleston Tours. A sunset cruise on the Schooner Pride
www.schoonerpride.com will create a memory that will last a lifetime.


A harbor cruise on the Carolina Belle
www.charlestonharbortours.com provides sun and salt air with beautiful panoramic views of the Battery and Fort Sumter .

I recently attended a private event on the Carolina Belle, and the in-house catering was exceptional! I’m still dreaming about that shrimp gazpacho! Yum!!!! Contact the good folks at Charleston Tours at

Magnolia Gardens

If I could only see one garden on my trip to Charleston, it would be Magnolia Plantation, the only remaining “Romantic Garden” in the United States.

Toast! Restaurant
www.toastofcharleston.com

Toast! is located at 155 Meeting Street, right where your tour begins. Arrive early for a rich cup of coffee ground fresh daily before your tour or a delicious breakfast or lunch. I recommend the Tropical Toast for a great morning starter!
