Historic Charleston Tour
Charleston, like many eastern seaboard cities, began it’s life as a company town over 300 years ago, a fledgling outpost interested in profit. Since that time, the city has survived pirates, wars, earthquakes, hurricanes and the scourge of slavery. Today, Charleston is one of America’s most beautiful and interesting cities.
