When you think Charleston, history, culture, and architecture probably come to mind. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to walk down a cobblestone alleyway, come upon a historic home, and spot a lush secret garden.

What if we told you that you can take a closer look? The Preservation Society of Charleston‘s annual Fall Tours are coming up next month and tickets are still available for select programs.

Between Oct. 5-29, attendees will learn about local architecture, landscapes, neighborhoods, and cultural heritage and experience it all first-hand in downtown Charleston. Pro tip: Wear comfortable walking shoes, trust us.

This year’s offerings include a wide range of experiences like the Insider’s Garden Tours, Specialty Hard Hat Tour, and Insider’s Architecture Tours. The traditional Piazzas and Gardens Tours will now take place on Saturday afternoons only.

Here’s a little background info: The Preservation Society of Charleston is the nation’s first preservation organization. This nonprofit is dedicated to protecting the city’s unique character, quality of life, and diverse neighborhoods.

If you’re interested in volunteering, complete a Volunteer Application. Volunteers will be provided with training materials + receive a voucher to attend a Saturday Piazzas and Gardens Tour of their choice.

Heads up: Tickets are selling quickly, and select programs may be sold out. Go here to explore all tour offerings.
