Historic District

Highly recommended
Occupying the lower tip of the peninsula formed by the Ashley and Cooper rivers-named for Anthony Ashley Cooper, one of the English Lords Proprietor-Charleston's historic district encompasses the area specified in the original 17C city plan, called the Grand Modell. A stroll along the brick, palmetto-fringed streets here hearkens back to the days when Charleston was London in miniature-a prosperous aristocratic city peopled by landed gentry. Walking-tour booklets are available for purchase at the Visitor Center (375 Meeting St) and at the Historic Charleston Foundation Museum Shop (108 Meeting St).
