Best Attractions in Charleston SC

  • Charleston Ghost and Graveyard Tours  

    This is the only tour that can take you into Charleston’s oldest graveyard at night! View Charleston’s famous tombstones and explore the streets and alleyways of our haunted Historic District while listening to stories of ghosts, haunted houses, and superstitions.

  • Haunted Jail Tour  

    As seen on The Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, The Old City Jail (circa 1802) is believed by many to be Charleston’s Most Haunted Building. Dark and sinister, the Jail housed some of Charleston’s most infamous criminals, pirates, and Civil War prisoners, many of whom still live there in the afterlife.

  • Dolphin Watch, Lighthouse and Shelling Tour  

    This private, two hour boat adventure is what Folly Beach & Charleston is really all about. You'll cruise through calm rivers lined with oyster beds and exotic birds as your captain, a Charleston native, looks for the Bottlenose Dolphins. Watching them swim next to the boat is exciting, but if they're feeding in the shallows it's spectacular! Next you'll be dropped off on a barrier island to look for shells where Civil War soldiers fought, died and are still buried.
