Check out our Top 10 attractions in and make sure you don't miss it

Gateway Walk

Very few people know about this garden path located between Archdale St and Philadelphia Alley and connects Charleston’s four beautiful historic churches, St. John’s Lutheran Church, Gothic Revival Unitarian Church, the Circular Congregational Church and St. Phillips Church. It is an important place as Charleston was given the nickname of the ‘Holy City’ and is known for giving refuge to French Protestants, Baptists and Jews.

Fort Sumter

The place that is well known as the beginning of the American Civil War, it was a confederate stronghold and was destroyed due to shelling by Union forces between 1863 to 1865. There are still a few original guns and fortifications remaining and visiting here is a great way to travel into the history of the fort. The only way to get here is by boat.

Old Slave Mart Musuem

This was once an open air market where African men, women and children were auctioned off as slaves in the mid 1800’s. It has now been turned into a museum about South Carolina’s history in the slave trade. The exhibits here complete with text show the experience of the slaves and other slave artifacts such as leg shackles along with first hand stories from former slaves.

Charleston Musuem

Claiming to be the USA’s oldest museum, the Charleston Museum was founded in 1773. It is very helpful and has tons of information pertaining to the history of the state if you pay a visit here before touring through the historic district. It shines a spotlight on different periods of Charleston’s long history. Some of the artifacts here include the skeleton of a whale, slave tags, the table that was used to sign the states secession documents and Charleston’s Polar Bear.

Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon

This creepy dungeon was once used as a prison for pirates and American patriots who were imprisoned by the British during the revolutionary war. The space is not that large and is located underneath a Georgian Palladian customs house that was built in 1771. The guides who lead the dungeon tours are dressed up in costumes to make the experience even more fun. The upper floors also include exhibits about the city.

Aiken-Rhett House

This urban plantation is the only one of its kind that is still surviving and gives you a glimpse into antebellum life. You can also visit the dorm style quarters of the slaves that served here which are located behind the main house. Today it is managed by the Historic Charleston Foundation who is in charge of preserving and conserving the property.

Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge

This 3 mile long bridge stretches across the Cooper River and is an absolute marvel of contemporary engineering. The bridge is perfect for cycling or jogging as it is a no car lane and is a famous weekend activity for both visitors and locals. The bridge connects downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. It is 1546 feet in length and the third longest cable stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.

South Carolina Aquarium

Showcasing a wide range of aquatic and marine life the South Carolina Aquarium is a bit on the expensive side to visit but the experience gained here is well worth the money spent such as the opportunity to touch sharks and rays in the Shark Shallows. The main highlight of the aquarium is the 42 foot Great Ocean Tank that is full of sharks and puffer fish.

Nathaniel Russell House

This federal style house was built in 1808 by a Rhode-Islander Nathaniel Russel also known as the ‘ King of the Yankees’ who was a wealthy shipping merchant. The highlight of this house is the self-supporting staircase. It has a small but beautiful English garden. Recognized as one of America’s most important neo-classical homes in 1973 it was designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Gibbes Musuem of Art

This art museum exhibits American and Southern works and its contemporary collection includes art by local artists mainly depicting low country life. The museum is located in Charleston’s Historic District. Apart from the usual art exhibits it also engages the community in arts through programs and special events such as the Insider Art Series.
