About this book
Charleston: A Historic Walking Tour will help natives and visitors alike appreciate the history and residents of this beautiful city. With its architecture, palm trees, and cobblestone streets, Charleston is one of the South's great cultural destinations. Its ballrooms and benevolent society halls attest to grand periods of opulence and high living. The theater, libraries, museum, and college show an appreciation for culture and sophistication. But don't let the city's beauty hide its turbulent history. The horrors of bombardment and occupation by conquering armies have left their marks. The city has experienced bleak times and disasters, including fires, a devastating earthquake, and hurricanes, not to mention the challenges of Reconstruction. Yet Charleston has survived its darker days, and now may be the city's finest hour. Neighborhoods from Calhoun Street to the Battery are in better condition today than they have ever been before. This book offers three tours to explore the historic downtown: the Meeting Street loop, the Legare Street loop, and the Ansonborough tour. Enjoy the walk, and let the city tell you its story.

    Had me laughing out loud

    0 5/5 Genevieve (WV USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Choosing Charleston (Kindle Edition) This book had me laughing out loud. My husband wanted to know what I was laughing at because he could hear me in another room. Living in West Virginia we have our own family quirks just like the Stone family does. I think it's a Southern thing *wink* Excellent book. Looking forward to others with the same fun, sweet, quirky characters. 5 stars! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 3, 2014

    Funny and romantic with a mystery

    Choosing Charleston is a rollicking read by T.Lynn Ocean. It is a really good read that traps you in the story until you finish. The characters are very realistic and the plot is definitely one that occurs in real life. Granny is hilarious and is the comic relief in the story.Carly Stone’s flight was cancelled and she booked for the next morning. On the way home, she thought of how she would surprise Roger, her husband of less than a year. As it turns out, she was the one surprised when she walked in on him making love to her best friend in her own bed. To make matters worse, he was telling Corin that he loved her. The next thing she knew was she was in a lawyer’s office signing divorce papers. She then fled to Charleston and her parents to think things over.She just thought she would find solace there. Her Granny now has dementia and keeps confusing Carly with her twin Jenny. Sometimes Granny is completely there and other times she is wacky. Her Dad... 5/5 P.

    Fodor's

    Best guide for first-time visitors. Comprehensive listings.

    First, the place. Charleston is a national treasure. It is a dynamic, prosperous, historic Southern city that maintains a nearly perfect state of preservation. Without question, the things that have made Charleston into the gem of a town it is today are historic periods of immense wealth followed by periods of poverty. The city was simply too poor to replace and rebuild its old structures until preservationists discovered them in the 1920s. After 100 years of restoration and refinement, Charleston has become so perfectly beautiful that you'd be forgiven for thinking you're on a movie set. Despite this, there's nothing fake about the facade. This is the real deal - a working colonial city within the Caribbean sphere of influence brought forward for all of us to enjoy today.Now, the book. Charleston guidebooks are a hard lot to get your hands around. The vast majority of them are written for first-time visitors, and this one is no exception. Locals and well-worn... 4/5 Jon L Albee (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews, May 13, 2015

    Dreadful printing or bad photography?

    0 3/5 Myernie (UK) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston Impressions (Hardcover) Charleston is a lovely city and this book sets out to do homage to it. Unfortunately the book is totally ruined by the quality of the photography printing. The images are lovely but many are out of focus, not by choice, but by i suspect from bad printing. It should be withdrawn and carefully re-edited. I have two copies of it and they are both terrible.My personal amateur shots are sharper and more atmospheric 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 24, 2014

    Excellent Overview

    0 5/5 Ms. Pen Name (Buffalo NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston Impressions (Hardcover) Charleston is a small city but it's packed with many, many irreplaceable treasures. I purchased this book in advance of an upcoming return trip to Charleston. This time, I want to really see the city--beyond the usual quick highlights. This book is exactly what the doctor ordered. In the Intro, Mr. Baldwin takes care to walk the reader through the city's history from its beginnings, warts and all. It was a "downtime" in Charleston's history that enabled so many original structures to survive to this day. After the intro, there are over a hundred pages of photos of Charleston architecture with captions providing identification and further insight into the past. I very much appreciate that the book delves into small details not readily noticeable without a guide and takes the reader beyond the most popular tourist sights into lesser known areas. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 20, 2015
