As soon as I saw they offer horse drawn carriage rides in Charleston, there was no need to review other options, as this would be top of Judi’s wish list. Billed as a carriage ride around historic downtown Charleston led by an informative guide, it certainly didn’t disappoint. Having just spent 2 days in New York City this was the perfect contrast, a quiet and laid back city, where the residents are renowned as being the friendliest in the United States.
Charleston, USA – 07:00 to 17:00
Our first visit to South Carolina and today we have booked a tour on a horse drawn carriage, meandering around the streets of historic downtown Charleston, where most of the buildings date from the 1800’s. While the tour was rather brief, on completion I headed out on foot retracing the tour’s track plus a few additional miles. This permitted an opportunity to not only view the historic buildings, but actually read the historical information attached to many of the homes.
