Perfect Place For a Mint Julep
Charleston is a perfect town to explore on foot, with atmospheric buildings and stately moss-draped oak trees around every corner. Wander down the historic Battery along the Ashley River and you'll see the best of the city's antebellum mansions, each with a wide porch designed as a place to sit and enjoy the cool breeze coming in off the river—you can practically see the Southern ladies of a century ago sitting there enjoying their mint juleps while they catch up on gossip. One of the most unique things to do from late September to late October is to take a home and garden tour sponsored by the Preservation Society of Charleston. The nighttime tours are the most fun, with the lighted mansions glowing invitingly, welcoming you to see what's inside.
