Why The French Quarter?
Charleston was first founded in 1670 and walking around the French Quarter is like taking a step back in time. The city has a preservation society that goes to great lengths to make sure the charm of Charleston stays where it is. This preservation society has been hard at work since 1973. You'll see Charleston single houses, learn about the history of certain paint colors, and learn the fun facts that make Charleston unique.
Not only does the French Quarter have some of the most historic churches and buildings, but it's also filled with amazing restaurants and boutiques. The French Quarter is a fun mix of the history and the future of Charleston. While many people do come to Charleston and visit the French Quarter, it's also where locals live everyday lives.
