Charleston is a historic city with a colonial feel, as it used to be owned by French merchants and is sometimes called the French Riviera of the south. With its cobbled streets and pastel houses and even horse-drawn carriages you may feel like you’ve stepped back in time. It played a major role in the American Civil War and this is where the first shot was fired. There is lots more history to learn about here with the The Old Slave Mart Museum.

Delving Deeper Into Charleston

Get up early this morning, as there is still a lot to see in the city that some call the French Riviera of the South. You can visit the Boone Hall Plantation, where the movie ‘The Notebook’ was filmed and is one of the largest, continuously working plantations in the area. You can participate in a guided tour of the house that includes eight slave houses on the grounds, bringing you closer to the area’s past, as you find small exhibitions consisting of photos, old objects and information boards.
