Visit Charleston to see why it has been renowned for three centuries as “a city set in a garden.” The Festival is set during the peak of the city's blooming season. Tours feature seven to 10 properties each day in one of 11 neighborhoods, dating from the American colonial period, through the antebellum and Victorian eras, to early 20th century.
The annual Festival of Houses & Gardens provides a rare opportunity for visitors to explore the private houses and gardens of Charleston's beautiful historic district. Morning walking tours, entertaining and informative luncheon lectures, harbor cruises and period musical concerts round out the schedule.
