Tucked into narrow interlocking streets and adorned by natural foliage and centuries-old, moss-draped live oak trees, this area is one of the focal points of the city's historic district, and is best viewed with a professional guide, either walking, by horse-drawn carriage, or touring van. Additionally, fine homes from the Civil War era can be found in the eastern portion of town, many with unrivaled water views.
Step-on guided island coach tours, boat tours, and kayak tours showcase the history, heritage and natural beauty of the coastal Lowcountry. Sport fishing, bike tours, horseback riding and adventure tours are also popular year-round.
Tour tickets are available for purchase daily at our Visitor Center. Walking, van, boat and carriage tours are offered by certified professional guides regularly. Contact us for pricing and current scheduling information.
Group planners or tour operators may request planning assistance or itinerary suggestions from the Visitor Center.
