  • We had a blast here and loved the audio walk along. Price was 12 a person and totally worth it. If you aren't into history, then you may be bored. Like my 7 year old, I wouldn't have been there as long if he was there. My girls would have enjoyed it. But they are older. A lot of extra stories on the audio too.
  • The Nathaniel Russell House on Meeting Street in Charleston is a beautiful historic house and garden area. The architecture of the house and the preservation of the house is great. When given the opportunity to take a tour of the property the docents are very knowledgeable and able to answer all of the questions that you have. This house is a memorable experience.
