It's safe to say that when it comes to Charleston's history, Tricia Goron knows her stuff. A native Charlestonian, she used her studies of local lore and training with veteran tour guides to delight passengers as a rickshaw and carriage driver before moving to walking tours in 2008. Now, she peppers her historical and haunted tours with facts previously known only by locals or well-studied ghosts. During daytime or nighttime strolls, she shares the stories of local figures and landmarks with attentive and wide-eyed visitors. From revealing the origin of the city's famous nickname to revealing interesting tidbits hidden along Rainbow Row, her tours expose the city's history through easy-going, engaging anecdotes. Tricia also contributes a little local color of her own; in addition to her job as a tour guide, she once wrangles spirits on a ghost-packed episode of A&E's Flip This House set just up the road in Georgetown.
