From Our Editors

At Walks in History, 1-mile tours are based on stories from the books Haunted Charleston and Haunted Harbor by authors Geordie Buxton and Ed Macy. The 90-minute Pirate and Haunted History tour tracks the fading footsteps of Blackbeard, Stede Bonnet, Anne Bonney, and Mary Read through the cobblestone streets and bastion walls of the Old Walled City. Making pit stops at six to eight haunts, the guides unravel tales regarding pirate hangings, Fort Sumter and the Pink House, where Blackbeard once shot rum and drunk dialed former first mates.

The 90-minute Supernatural Charleston Ghost Tour ventures into the murky twilight like a darkness-starved vampire bat after the summer solstice. As the expert guides snake through six to eight stops, they shed light on ghostly activity at sites such as the Old Citadel, a Revolutionary War burial ground, and the remains of the Charleston Orphan Asylum.

Charleston Guide

Charleston was founded in 1670—a full century before the city would suffer a British siege during the Revolutionary War, and nearly two before the Civil War would erupt with cannon shots in its harbor. Those two events and their contexts would prove formative for the city, and signs of them are hard to miss today. War monuments line the waterfront, the spires of colonial-era churches punctuate the skyline, and horse-drawn carriages clop along the cobblestone streets.

If you're looking for things to do that will bring you closer to an understanding of Charleston’s rich history, visit Fort Sumter, which is accessible via a ferry that leaves from the Visitor Education Center downtown. On the island, groups tour the historic grounds and marvel at artifacts such as the 33-star U.S. flag that flew the night the first shots of the Civil War were fired. The fort is also visible from the White Point Garden on the mainland, where you can stare down the barrels of retired Confederate cannons and take in views of Charleston Harbor.

More recently, Charleston has integrated a vibrant arts scene into its Old South identity. The city’s streets are lined with top-tier art galleries and antique stores, and live jazz performances rage throughout the night. Step out onto King Street to browse third-generation clothiers that have set up shop in historic buildings, or drop by the Gibbes Museum of Art to admire colonial portraits, contemporary lithographs, and pieces from the early 20th-century period known as the Charleston Renaissance.

The islands that buffer the city's coast have an appeal all their own. Their main attraction is a surplus of luxury beach resorts, many of which feature popular and highly rated golf courses. Wild Dunes Resort's Harbor Golf Course is typical in that many of its holes afford spectacular views of the water. There's nothing typical about the 17th hole, however, which earned the nickname "The Marsh Monster" thanks to its unforgiving terrain.

In recent years, Charleston has cultivated a reputation as a major culinary destination—the James Beard Foundation named a different Charleston chef the best in the Southeast each year from 2008 to 2010. At Fig, chefs use seasonal ingredients to create dishes of fresh sea bass and suckling pig confit, though Hominy Grill is the place to sample regional favorites such as shrimp and grits or fried chicken with country ham gravy.
