A carriage ride through historic Charleston neighborhoods will take you back to another time as you see Victorian and Colonial homes that were built hundreds of years ago and still preserved today.
If you are a first-time vacationer to Charleston South Carolina, the best way to enjoy its history is to take a leisurely journey on a horse-drawn carriage through the Historic District of Charleston. The hundreds of historic homes, some of which were built before the American Revolution, are among the most interesting attractions in Charleston SC.
A knowledgeable guide will narrate the entire tour as you meander down tree-lined cobblestone streets that hold centuries of history. There are also guided walking tours, but taking a horse carriage allows you to sit in comfort while absorbing the scenic views. Once you've taken a carriage tour, you can then decide those areas that are most interesting and visit them later at your own pace and convenience. Besides, for romancing couples, a carriage ride is an added touch to a vacation getaway.
