South Carolina Has Its Own Museum Mile And It’s Positively Fascinating

It’s easy to think of a museum as filled with old artifacts significant in the history of a specific place or subject. But a MUSEUM MILE is much more and you’ll want to put on your walking shoes and walk this one mile in South Carolina. Here’s why: along this one mile you’ll find six museums, five nationally renowned grand historic homes, four scenic parks, several historic churches, a Revolutionay War powder magazine and a city market in use since the 1700s. Take a look below at some of the highlights along South Carolina’s Museum Mile:

In total, 26 historical locations are part of Charleston’s Museum Mile. Further, you can save by bundling your tour tickets into packages. For instance, if you want to see all of the sites significant during the Revolutionary War, or Civil War sites, they have discount packages all set up for you. Want to see just the historic old homes that offer tours? They have a special ticket package for that, too.
