Explore the Holy City’s history, lore and legends with me, Charleston-native, Brian Simms. My family has been in the area for 9 generations. I will guide you on a memorable two-hour walking tour that includes an introduction to some of our most celebrated landmarks and hidden treasures that make this such a special place to visit. We will start at the Old Exchange Building (Charleston's Independence Hall) then stroll through the streets of Charleston. Just a few of the sites covered are St. Michael’s Church: the oldest church edifice in Charleston, Four Corners of Law: referenced in Ripley’s “Believe It or Not”, Rainbow Row: multi-colored residences today, was once the center of the waterfront economy, Antebellum Mansions: see the grandeur and beauty of these pre-Civil War homes, Historic Waterfront Battery: named for the entrenchments and bastions once protecting the holy city, Revolutionary and Civil Wars: overall history and sites that defined these battles for independence and state rights. There is a rich history and culture I would like to share and look forward to showing you the sights of our beautiful city, creating an experience you will remember for years to come!
