Return to Charleston
Been there? Go again. Our favorite Southern lady reveals more charms you’ll absolutely love.
Water, Water EverywhereThis city sits at the junction of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers where the two come together to form Charleston Harbor. Dozens of outfitters will see to it that you take advantage of the city’s watery assets. You can kayak the marshes, charter a deep-sea fishing boat, or board a water taxi headed for Patriots Point. But for sheer beauty and relaxation, we favor a sunset tour of the harbor aboard the schooner Pride. This three-masted tall ship resembles the sailing vessels that once traded up and down the coast. When the sails go up, the Pride rocks across the water, with dolphins and seagulls often trailing in her wake. The two-hour tour offers spectacular views of the Cooper River Bridge, Rainbow Row, and Fort Sumter.
The Pride docks at the Aquarium Wharf at 360 Concord Street. Tours during the day cost $27 per person, with sunset ones priced at $34. Reservations are highly recommended. Visit www.schoonerpride.com , or call 1-800-344-4483 or (843) 722-1112.
