Charleston is by far one of the South’s most valuable gems. The breezes sweeping off the bay will entice you to breathe in the salty sea air of Battery Park. A walk down cobblestone streets will take you back to an era of southern belles and dashing gentlemen. Whether you are downtown or in Charleston’s historic district, there is always something worth doing and seeing. Come with us as we take you on a journey to the heart of the South, and see what awaits when you travel with Blue Ridge Tours!
We will start off the day traveling on high quality motorcoaches toward our destination. After lunch we will step onto a Harbor Tour given by SpiritLine cruises. This tour takes us around the harbor with a guide telling us all there is to know about the waterfront of Charleston.
“There’s no better way to experience Charleston and her history than from the decks of a SpiritLine yacht. Join us for a non-stop, live narrated harbor tour and discover how fresh sea air, incredible harbor views and the history of the Old South can turn your tour of Charleston harbor into a memorable event. For 1 hour and 30 minutes, enjoy a leisurely cruise past the palatial homes of Charleston’s famous Battery, the Cooper River Bridge, Waterfront Park, Patriots Point, Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie and our bustling seaport.”
Once we recover from our sea legs we will visit one of our nation’s long-standing historical forts, Fort Moultrie. This fort has an interesting history to discover, encompassing generations of safeguarding the South Carolina shoreline from attack. Visitors will visibly see the transformations that the fort has undergone.
