Charleston Heritage Passport

Charleston is a mecca for history and the appreciation of this history seems to be a birth-right here; however, you can appreciate the historical heritage of the city with just a long weekend!

Get your passport (your Heritage Passport, that is), slap on some comfy shoes, and open your eyes and ears to a whirlwind jaunt through Charleston’s history.

The Heritage Passport is the perfect way for you to experience some of the best historical sights in and around Charleston at a discounted rate. The passports can only be purchased at the Charleston Visitor Center on Meeting Street.

You can decide if you would like a 2-day, 3-day, or 7-day Heritage Passport. The prices are $52.95, $62.95, and $72.95, respectively.
