Charleston is known as the Holy City, but it’s also the Holy Mecca of outdoor activities, delicious restaurants, and of course- boats. Choosing the right itinerary may seem daunting, but fear not, we have you covered!

Charleston boat tours are the perfect way to see the gorgeous city from a different perspective while sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying a beverage (or two). Without the hustle and bustle of Downtown, your group can enjoy the open ocean views on either a private tour or public tour with a few new friends! There are a handful of ways to view Charleston from the water, but nothing quite compares to the way Saltwater Cycle does cruising.

Here are 5 reasons you should float, pedal, and party with the only pedal pub in the Lowcountry:

When it comes to Charleston’s history, the line between fact + fable tends to get a little murky. That’s especially the case when it comes to chronicling the time Edgar Allan Poe, a man who relished in the mysterious, spent here.

For instance, while we know it to be true that Poe spent thirteen months stationed at Fort Moultrie, we also know that he did so under a false identity: 18-year-old Edgar Allan Poe claimed to be 22 year-old Edgar Allan Perry when he enlisted in the U.S. Army.

This week, we visit South Carolina Society Hall at 72 Meeting Street. This building is another that has played a part in the lives of Charlestonians and visitors for 215 years. When constructed as the home of the South Carolina Society in 1804 by local rice planter, attorney and gentleman architect Gabriel Manigault, there were no columns or portico in front. Those weren't added until 1825 when the exterior was updated in the classical revival style.

It’s no secret that Charleston is full of historic homes that are rich in beauty and charm. People from across the globe visit the Holy City to admire the stunning architecture and stylish details that are featured in many of our historic houses.

Our iconic historic homes are a source of pride for Charleston. If you’re planning a visit to the Holy City or searching for real estate in Charleston, you’ll no doubt run into the beautiful characteristics that set our historic homes apart from other styles:

This week we visit 22 Rutledge Avenue, the last house on Rutledge across from Colonial Lake. 22 Rutledge is an unusual construction for Charleston; the style is Renaissance Revival, and from the sidewalk there is little indication of the amount of property behind the house. Tucked behind 22 Rutledge is a carriage house, pool and lush garden.

This week, we visit 69 Barre Street, very close to the Ashley River. The last post dealt with Washington Jefferson Bennett, who lived just a few blocks away at 60 Montagu. 69 Barre was built by his father Thomas Bennett after his term as Governor of South Carolina was completed. In addition to being Governor, Bennett was also a banker, served as Mayor of Charleston, and was a member of the South Carolina Legislature. 

This week we visit 60 Montagu Street, in the area of Harleston Green and close to the Ashley River. Montagu street was named for one of Carolina's last Royal Governors, Sir Charles Greville Montagu.

60 Montagu is a large property with a grand house of approximately 9,400 square feet with formal gardens in the rear. Set on a high raised basement, this double house was built in the Adam style around 1800 by a planter and factor Theodore Gaillard, Jr.
