This was one thing I definitely wanted to check out in Charleston and I'm glad I did. The buildings are very neat! They are very easy to find and convenient. Great way to kill time or get some walking in.

The French Quarter and rainbow row are what the heart of Charleston is made of - beautiful, historical homes built between colonial times and the civil war era. Walk amongst the streets and check out the history!

On the bus loaded with tourists it was hard to see. I wish we had returned for a leisurely walk along the street. The houses are not open to tourists.
