I live here in Charleston and this guidebook is great, especially if you want to see the history. It also is useful in pointing out photo worthy highlights. But don't think this book is exhaustive. There is a lot more to see in Charleston than this book portrays. The benefit here is that it packages things in terms of efficiency (no need to double back to see what you missed) and gets many of the historical highlights. If you're coming to Charleston, or Charleston is a favorite place of yours, this book will help you plan and/or reminisce.

What a terrific book with so many wonderful photos and information on Charleston, SC. I, as well as my family have always lived in Charleston...."best destination city in the US for 13 years". I'm so proud of our city and this book brings back so many wonderful memories and provides people that are new to Charleston a lot of history for our beautiful city.

The book was a great depiction of architecture in Charleston. I have since visited the city for the first time. I found more historical information in other guides as this one focuses on the architecture.

It would have been better if there were maps for each tour and write up for each tour rather than just descriptions beneath the photos.
FLIDER
I will be using this on our trip next year to Charleston. It was informative and will be very helpful.
Great telling of the past but not particularly tourist friendly. Would be great with a companion volume -- then and now.
