See the highlights of Charleston on this day trip from Myrtle Beach. Your full-day tour includes a carriage ride, boat trip around the harbor, lunch, and a tour of Boone Hall Plantation.
Step aboard a carriage for an informative and entertaining trip through 25 blocks of Charleston's oldest residential and business districts. Then hop on the Carolina Belle boat for a tour of the harbor. You see the white steeple of St. Michael's Episcopal Church, which was saved from destruction during the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Also admire the stately homes along the Battery that have survived war, hurricanes, and earthquakes, and are now a symbol of Southern elegance and perseverance.
During your day trip enjoy a deli-style boxed lunch and refreshments. Finish your adventure with a tour of the Boone Hall Plantation, a National Historic Site and 1 of America's oldest working plantations. Drive down the world-renowned Avenue of Oaks to the 738-acre (1,823-ha) plantation to view historical brick slave cabins, a smoke house, and a cotton gin. Costumed hostesses greet you at the mansion and provide guided tours of the first floor.
