Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist has been added to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 17th (Sat): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, steep yourself in history at Heyward-Washington House, learn more about the world around you at The Charleston Museum, then steep yourself in history at McLeod Plantation Historic Site, and finally hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the striking features of Unitarian Church in Charleston, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Circular Congregational Church.
