Old South Carriage Company
Must Do! Take a carriage ride and learn about the history of our city... and the history of our country!

My favorite way to see downtown Charleston and get a history lesson about the town. There are many companies that give carriage tours. This one is my favorite.

“It is nestled right by Market St., where all of the local shops are at, and about a 3 minute walk to Waterfront park and a 2 minute walk over to my favorite dessert bar, Kaminsky's. ”
“Great dessert bar with anything from alcoholic milkshakes to reeses pie. My favorite is the Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake. It is definitely a must see if you are heading downtown during your stay! Make sure to call ahead or get there early as the place fills up quick! ”
