    This is the jewel of the historic home museums in Charleston. It's both beautiful and historically significant.

    Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Lots of interesting furniture and artifacts. Being able to see the slave buildings was sobering and interesting as well.

    One of the better historical homes to visit in the Charleston area. Great pieces of furniture in the home. Nice gardens to explore before and after the tour.

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
