Create Your Own Walking Tour of Charleston, SC

The best walking tour in Charleston, SC, is the one you create for yourself! There are some benefits to booking a guided walking tour, but we suggest that our guests take a chance and explore our gorgeous historic district at their own pace.

If you’re looking for a good starting point, head to the French Quarter. Here, you’ll find colorful streets, some of the oldest churches in the city, and gorgeous mansions. This is also home to the iconic Rainbow Row and Waterfront Park. 

You’ll want to finish your tour with a stroll down Broad Street, which features some of the top restaurants and shops on the peninsula. Another excellent place for shopping and noshing is King Street, which is a must for every visitor. 

Whether it’s your first or fiftieth visit to the city, these are always fantastic places to explore, but don’t be afraid to improvise! Take a detour or a couple of sidestreets and see where that takes you. Some of the best moments are the result of an unplanned divergence.
