Charleston is a charming, architecturally picturesque city filled with a treasure trove of magnificent antebellum homes, beautifully preserved churches and public buildings and hidden gardens down cobblestone lanes.  Founded in 1670, it is one of America’s oldest cities.  Most of its beautifully restored homes and buildings are in the Historic District, on what is known as The Peninsula, an area of low-lying land between the Ashley and Cooper rivers. Spend the first day of your 2-day visit to Charleston in the Historic District. On the second day, sample distinctively delicious Lowcountry cuisine on a food tour in the morning and take a short car ride from the Historic District to Ashley River Road for an afternoon spent touring remarkable antebellum plantation homes and spectacular gardens.
