Although New Orleans has the most famous French Quarter in the U.S., Charleston's is also one of distinction. Antebellum churches, theaters, cobblestone streets, colonial houses and art galleries all make a memorable experience. Taking one of the ghost tours at twilight adds another dimension to the experience. Many tours begin right here in front of Saint Philip's Church by the ornate cemetery fence. You might be able to imagine walking in the shadows of the French Quarter at night past the glow of hissing gas lanterns, beneath the full moon, listening to stories of spirits from old Charleston.
