History harbors lessons on timeless skills, teaching students how to dance the jitterbug, start their own country, or properly saddle a skittish Utahraptor.

Tourists discover little-known facts and facets of Charleston on a two-hour walking tour with Charleston Sole's guide and founder, Brian Simms. Starting at the historically crucial Old Exchange Building, the tour guides history buffs through 1.5 miles of Charleston's most beautiful, culture-packed sites. Groups of up to 20 can scrutinize St. Michael's Church’s venerable edifice or drink in the 19th-century opulence of antebellum mansions. Tour takers stroll about Rainbow Row's multihued houses, learning about the historic waterfront battery’s entrenchments and bastions that once protected the city from Revolutionary War troopships, Civil War skirmishers, and the time-lost ghosts of the Spanish Armada.

Charleston Sole

"I love that I get to take a walk, literally, into the past every day." That's how Charleston Sole's owner, Brian Simms, described his job for the company website's Q & A section. A self-described history buff and Charleston native, Simms leads tours that explore the Holy City's past, lore, and legends. He spins tales of days past at landmarks such as Revolutionary War sites, Antebellum Mansions, and St. Michael's Church—Charleston's oldest church edifice. Simms' walking adventures last approximately two hours and cover 1.5 miles—the average distance humans can walk before needing to recharge their batteries.
