Middleton Place House Museum Tour & Lunch
Middleton Place is a National Historic Landmark and home to America’s Oldest Landscaped Gardens. Built in 1755 the House Museum interprets four generations of Middleton Family with extraordinary family furniture, silver, porcelain, rare books and portraits. Birthplace of the signer of the Declaration of Independence, Middleton Place and the Middleton’s have played an important role in American history. The property has miraculously remained under the same family stewardship for some 320 years, and today, successfully preserves history for visitors to enjoy.

Carriage Tour followed by lunch at 82 Queen
An old custom thrives in Charleston as you tour the city in a horse-drawn carriage. Enjoy guided tours in carriages drawn by award winning Percheron Draft Horses. Horse-drawn transportation is a tradition in Charleston that the tour owners make every effort to maintain as authentically as possible. No matter which direction your carriage goes, you are sure to hear insightful tidbits of local lore, gain a new perspective on Southern culture, and share in the humor and wonder of Charleston’s rich history.
