A good way to see the historic area of Charleston, S.C., is to walk along the Museum Mile.
This historic walking tour (self-guided) is a great way to squeeze in as many museums and historic sites as possible. A majority of the sites are located up and down a mile-stretch of Meeting Street. But the Museum Mile’s map will also take you to homes and buildings down some side streets, all within walking distance.
For many of the sites admission to one historic home or building will get you a discount into another property. So plan you tours wisely!
We only had one, rainy day to visit so we decided on visiting Aiken-Rhett House, Nathaniel Russell House and the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon. Admission to the Aiken-Rhett House and Nathaniel Russell House are $10 each or $16 to visit both.
If we’d had more time, I would have loved to visit the Edmonston-Alston House and the Gibbes Museum of Art.
I’ll share photos and info about the homes we did visit in future posts, so stop back by to check ’em out!
