WALKING TOURS

Badass Broads Tour

 

JWalk's "Badass Broads Walking Tour" may step outside of the lines just a bit but we consider it a homage to these ladies who sometimes had to step way outside of the lines and defy the conventions of their day to make their marks. JWalk Tours is proud to present a few of the badass ladies who you'll discover are a vibrant part of Charleston's story. A story that is, unfortunately, relegated to back pages of history and often untold. [More Info]

Chicora Walking Tour 

Walking the streets of Charleston, one of the oldest cities in America, is walking through an important part of the tapestry of American history. Established in 1670, Charleston grew to become one of the nation’s leading ports and was an especially important for trade and military defense in the South. In fact, by 1750 Charleston was the largest and wealthiest city south of Philadelphia.

On our walk together, you’ll become part of a city with a rich and fascinating story to tell. From it’s wealth and opulence to the many disasters that fell upon it and its participation in the darkest parts of American history and humanity. Like any city with opportunity, people of great diversity came from near and far to participate in the building of one of the early melting pots in America. They built enduring structures; houses, churches, businesses and forts all with their own stories to tell. These streets and structures have been walked by presidents and foreign dignitaries, generals and soldiers, slaves and slave traders, and pirates and merchants. You will feel a part of the celebrations held for visiting presidents to the devastating fires, earth quake, hurricanes along with attacks by foreign invaders, pirates and eventually Union armies that were defended against.
