Holy City Church and Architecture Walking Tour
Tuesday, June 15, 1:00–4:00 p.m.

Charleston is called the Holy City for many reasons. This tour focuses on its origins of religious freedom and the varied and beautiful architecture throughout the city. Guests will visit 6-10 churches and explore the history, congregation, and architecture of each.


Home and Garden Walking Tour
Tuesday, June 15, 1:30–4:30 p.m.
$85 per person

Escorted by a private tour guide, guests will experience some of the finest early architecture in the United States, with examples of Georgian, Federal, Regency, Greek Revival and Victorian styles along the walking tour route. Some sights include St. Michael’s Church, the Nathaniel Russell House, Washington Square Park, and many other historic landmarks and exquisite gardens. Proper footwear for uneven sidewalks required.


Inshore Fishing
Tuesday, June 15, 12:45–4:45 p.m.
$275 per person

The Charleston area offers outstanding inshore fishing opportunities for the light tackle angler. The “flats boat” is designed to hunt out and stalk fish inhabiting inshore estuaries, tidal creeks and all barrier island waters. No experience or equipment necessary. This is a catch and release activity. Be sure you wear appropriate footwear, head cover, sunscreen, and sunglasses.


USS Yorktown
Tuesday, June 15, 1:15–5:15 p.m.
$90 per person (includes admission/transportation/tour guide)

Join us at Patriots Point to “Walk in the Footsteps of Heroes” aboard the USS Yorktown CV10. Commissioned on April 15, 1943, World War II’s famous “Fighting Lady” participated significantly in the Pacific offensive that began in late 1943 and ended with the defeat of Japan in 1945. Come hear the stories of the brave men and women who served; those who stood to protect our freedoms. Experience these stories as your heart fills with pride and your eyes with tears.
