Adventure in Charleston

9:30am          Depart Charleston Place.

 
9:30-12:00n   Guided walking tour as you explore this enchanting and historic city.  Favorite sights include: Rainbow Row, cobblestone streets, quaint gardens, hundreds of 18th and 19th century homes, buildings and churches, and the Battery overlooking the Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter.  You will tour The Nathaniel Russell House and The Edmondston-Alston House.

 

The Nathaniel Russell House is a handsome example of Federal architecture, completed in 1808 by Nathaniel Russell, one of Charleston's wealthiest merchants.  The astonishing flying staircase spirals unsupported from floor to floor, and the tier of beautiful south rooms have elliptical shapes.  This home is complemented by gleaming old silver, fine china and fine examples of Charleston crafted period furniture.

 

Featured in the A & E TV series, "America's Castles" the stately Edmondston-Alston House on Charleston's High Battery is one of the City's most splendid dwellings, a gracious example of the early nineteenth-century commitment to elegance, style, and comfort.

 

When Charles Edmondston of Scotland built his Regency-style home in 1825, he was at the height of his success as a Charleston merchant. This neoclassic house was one of the earliest constructed in the developing water-front location. Edmondston's home was a comfortable distance from the noise and confusion of the wharves and waterfront warehouses. From his piazza Edmondston could monitor the arrival and departure of ships carrying his cargoes.
 

12:00-1:30pm Luncheon at 82 Queen.

 

Nestled in the heart of the historic district, 82 Queen's beautiful buildings are situated on the site of the former Schenckingh's Square.  Part of the original walled city of Charles Towne, the Square dates back to the 1600's when South Carolina was just a newly formed colony. 

 

82 Queen offers garden fresh Lowcountry cuisine reflecting its rich southern history.  More than any restaurant in Charleston, 82 Queen embodies hospitality and tradition of the true South.
