Peek Into the Past

As far as America’s top destinations go, you wouldn’t associate the mega-attraction of Disneyland with little old Charleston, South Carolina. They’re as different as chalk and cheese, in a good way. Interestingly, the visionary and creative genius, Walt Disney, is the one who said it best, “Tomorrow is a heck of a thing to keep up with.” So, we don’t try.

By taking a tour from Charleston Carriage Works, visitors can embrace the well-preserved beauty and grace of our charming city. It also becomes a learning experience so visitors can re-discover our American roots and explore the history that still exists within our city.
