We enjoyed dining at Tradds and at Circa 1886. As well as the breakfast served at the Rutledge House.

This is a great area for great history. So much history on this street. I would recommend this area for a few hours just to see and look around. Church, old homes with famous Americans, just so full of things to see. I love Charleston!

The Unitarian Church in Charleston is easily accessible and well worth even a short visit. The cemetery is especially interesting. Don't miss this church during your visit of the many Charleston historical locations.

The choir certainly was in good form. They also had some guest musicians. The sanctuary was beautiful with the colors from the windows adding to the arched ceiling.
