  • Frank's Fly Arts
    Reservations/Appointments: Required Established: 2008 Staff Size: 2–10 people Average Duration of Services: 1–2 hours Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Drift boat fly-fishing trips and lessons Q&A with Michael Frank, Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? My ability to teach newcomers the casting skills, fishing tactics, and fish-finding skills they need to be successful during their time on the water. The words of praise from world-traveled fly fishers and newcomers alike thanking me for providing them with an interesting, unexpectedly exciting real fly-fishing tour in a part of the world where they might least expect it. What’s your favorite part of your job? Having the pleasure of meeting dedicated fly fishermen from here in South Carolina and around the world, and being able to share the unique resource of the three rivers of Columbia, South Carolina, with them. [The three rivers] are part of the Santee-Cooper river system, which was the first in the world in which striped bass successfully reproduced in a landlocked setting without access to the ocean. I really enjoy watching newcomers hook and land their first fish using the training and practice they have had with me. I love being able to be an advocate for our rivers and for their protection and conservation. It is especially rewarding for me when young clients on parent-child trips take an interest in the insects and other organisms present in the rivers that our fish depend on for food and grasp the importance of keeping the rivers clean for their benefit and the continued health of our fish populations and other wildlife. When it comes to fly-tying lessons, my favorite part is the spark of recognition on a student's face when they realize that they are able to do it, and the pride they take in producing a cool-looking, buggy representation of a living fish food. I like that parents who may have been skeptical about this activity for their children and their ability to maintain focus often realize just how engrossing the whole process of tying a fly can be for a child. A few years ago, I tied flies at a boat show in New York. When I do these events, I will often sit people down and have them tie a simple fly. Two older gentlemen at the booth next to ours commented on how many kids were interested in trying it. They couldn't believe that the Nintendo Generation was so interested in something so hands-on and non-digital. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? I was lucky enough to have my second guide row the drift boat down the river for me a few times. The most enjoyable part was that I could fish and did not have to row. It was a special feeling being given the royal treatment and having someone else position the boat perfectly, allowing me to cast to the best spots. It gave me a better appreciation of what I provide my clients when we're on the water. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? I am a full-time teacher, and in my tying lessons, I provide individual help to make sure students leave with the basic skills to continue tying flies of their own. A lesson usually includes a digital demonstration of tying the fly we are working on in that class, followed by hands-on, step-by-step [instruction]. Once the first fly is complete, we will tie another together, and as students feel ready, they can move ahead at their own speed, tying more flies of the same style in whatever color they like. Students usually end up tying two to four flies in a typical two-hour class, and I also try to make sure I tie enough so that each student gets one to take home as a model. Students who bring their own thumb drive can also take the digital presentation with them so that they have the step-by-step instructions to work from at home.

  • Lowcountry Tours
    The knowledgeable guides of Charleston Culinary Tours and Lowcountry Walking Tours acquaint tour-goers with the rich cultural and historical heritage of the largest historic district in the United States through two distinct branches. Lowcountry Walking Tours's guides delve into the histories and mysteries of Charleston, revealing its both dark and romantic origins. Their excursions venture downtown or out to Mount Pleasant, each exploring the events that shaped the region with an emphasis on the areas toured. They often meander the streets of the French Quarter as guides opine on the historic churches, horticulture, and reason why the city had to change its name from Tokyo to Charleston. Charleston Culinary Tours introduce groups to the area through their taste buds. Each restaurant tour journeys to four acclaimed restaurants, granting a bounty of food tastings alongside a meet-and-greet with restaurant owners and chefs. On the farmer's market tour, groups explore the farm-fresh finds of a market named one of the nation's best by Travel + Leisure, then venture to an area restaurant where they can savor the newly picked produce within a gourmet meal. The farm-to-table theme continues on the mixology tour, where participants sip specialty cocktails infused with fresh herbs and produce as the learn about the secrets to Charleston's craft cocktail scene.

  • Holy City Helicopters
    A bird's eye view of Charleston affords spectacular vistas of the colonial charm of the city, the vast blue ocean that surrounds it, and the green marshes that separate the two. Holy City Helicopters organizes flight tours that provide anyone with access to these unparalleled views from above. The helicopter tours hover over locations as far flung as Kiawah Island or Edisto Beach to let tour goers soak in the colorful sights of the Low Country. From inside the cabin of a chopper during some tours, guests can see local buildings and landmarks such as Rainbow Row from above or get a better look at the U.S.S. Yorktown at Patriot's Point. Though helicopters are not usually equipped with gyro stabilized imaging, this can be requested prior to the tour.

  • The Original Charleston Walks
    Over the past 30 years, Dennis Stiles has served as a helicopter-rescue pilot and military diplomat. When his travels led him to settle in Charleston, he took up poetry and a position as a senior docent of the Gibbes Museum of Art. Today, he combines scholarly pursuits and his love for adventure as the director of The Original Charleston Walks. He and pirate-history scholar Mike Brown helm a team of knowledgeable guides who lead walking tours through several centuries of the city's military, political, social, architectural, and often ghostly history. On the Charleston Walk 300 Years of History tour, guides detail what life was like in the early Carolina colony and describe Charleston’s role in the American Revolution and the Civil War, pointing out landmarks such as Fort Sumter, the Dock Street Theatre, and the place where first governor William Sayle threw his inaugural pool party. They also explore the hardship faced and legends spawned by slavery-era African Americans during the Slavery & Freedom tour, and they tell stories of commandeered ships, wild parties, and daring escapes made by renowned pirates such as Blackbeard and Anne Bonny on the Charleston's Pirates & Buccaneers tour. On a year-round ghost tour, guides unveil mysterious sightings and Gullah islander superstitions, as well as point out hidden cemeteries.

  • Culture and Heritage Museums
    Culture & Heritage Museums safeguard the Carolina Piedmont's historical treasures and educate residents and visitors about the region's unique past. Instituted in the 1950's, York County's group of affiliated museums and attractions forms a multi-campus network encompassing a wealth of educational opportunities across various disciplines. Each year, museumgoers view antique documents and photographs at the Historical Center located inside the McCelvey Center. They can get to know more than 1,500 natural specimens at the hands-on Naturalist Center inside the Museum of York County, and march through Historic Brattonsville's 775-acre Revolutionary War site. Locals can volunteer at the museums in fascinating roles, such as specimen preparers, who beautify avian exhibits by helping with taxidermy and surgical beak-lifts.

  • Samhain Production Co.
    The story of The Vault of Horror revolves around the legend of Raymond Hunt III. Bullied by his peers and spurned by his parents, Raymond was a natural outcast early in life, until a violent exchange with his father culminated in a vile act: patricide. Raymond was sent to an insane asylum after the murder, but at the age of 21, he escaped, joined the circus, and put together a live freak show of humanity’s most odd and unsettling creatures. The pariah's eerie parade eventually earned him the title of Ringmaster, and Raymond—it seemed—had finally put his troubled background behind him and found a new, peaceful calling. Soon afterward, a man came looking every night for his son, whom he'd lost while attending Raymond's show. Giving up hope, the man left one evening, sneaking a final glance at one of the cages and the twisted, snarling creature inside—a boy staring back at him with familiar eyes. The man confronted Raymond, whose repressed trauma reemerged as he killed the father in cold blood—the final spectacle of a tormented son. Raymond escaped from police custody, vanishing into a world in which he didn't belong, and the members of his freak show were never seen again. Until, that is, someone opened The Vault of Horror. The spine-tingling brainchild of Samhain Production Company, The Vault of Horror immerses brazen guests in a hellish complex filled with blood-splattered fiends and tortured spirits. The Vault eschews familiar scares such as horror-film homages, animatronic ghouls, and undead telemarketers in favor of unique brutes played by a live cast, making the dark venue's bone-chilling scenes more authentic, immersive, and surprising.
