Continued from 6-22-16
7) Edmondston Alston House Tour
The best bang for your buck if you ask us. This tour is only $12.00 per adult and $8.00 per student. We have been on this tour several times and each time w learn something new, and enjoy the beautiful view of the harbor. Packed with history of the early years of Charleston you'll learn about some of the famous families of the early 1800's and if you're lucky your tour guide will tell you where the expression, "It'll cost you an arm and a leg" came from!

8) Library Reading Program

9) Charleston Tea Plantation
Come on out to Wadmalaw Island by driving down the Maybank Highway to explore the 127 acres of the only tea plantation in North America. How do I know this? I just took the free factory tour and the $10.00 trolley ride around the plantation. Believe me, you’ll never drink Bigelow Tea again without remembering the beautiful tea bushes and the nature of the Charleston Tea Plantation. Oh, and the answer to who drinks the most tea in the world is not England, it’s Ireland! Free tip there for you!

10) Charleston Museum
Learn about the history of The Holy City, Charleston, and why it's called that. Then return to the gift shop for some really special items to bring home.
360 Meeting Street
11) THE CITY MARKET
The market began nearly 220 years ago and a trip to Charleston wouldn’t be complete without a stop here. It's the perfect place to browse, find souvenirs to take back home, and get a Candied Apple at the candy store from River Street Candy (or pralines). Starting on Meeting St. and walk to the end on East Bay St., you will see so many fine crafters from the area; Sweet Grass baskets you’ll see being hand made at the entrance to one of the buildings, jewelry, handmade jewelry, local foods, clothes, ornaments and so much more.
