    Arthur J. Ravenel Bridge

    12 reviews

    A beautiful bridge, many people enjoy walking, running or biking it. Not for the faint of heart! It is truly very high, and on a windy day, the middle of the bridge will be even windier.

    Charleston Farmers Market

    9 reviews

    Everyone loves a Farmer's Market. Take home some of our local produce and shop along famous King Street on your walk to and from Marion Square, where the Market is located. There are award-winning cutting-edge restaurants on upper King Street just north of the Market. The College of Charleston is a block away.

The museum also manages the Heyward-Washington and Joseph Manigault historic homes in Charleston which are toured separately. DEEP discount tickets are available for multiple venue ...

    This is the Charleston main location and the Mt. Pleasant branch is at the Waterfront Memorial Park under the Ravenel bridge. It is definitely worth checking there for current specials before touring.
