1. Charleston: 2-Hour Strong Women of the South History Tour
The Strong Women of the South History Tour is an exploration of historical Charleston from the perspective of the founding mothers and women of every color who contributed to the Great American Dream. Along the way, learn about a city once owned and controlled by women. Rated as a top Airbnb experience by Charleston Weddings Magazine, this tour is perfect for bachelorettes, couples, locals, and tourists who are looking for something more than a generic city tour. This experience begins at the alleged execution site of America's first female serial killer. Stand in the spot where she met her fate and hear her story. Next, visit the homes and sites of the “Old Maids." Learn about these women who were activists, printers, artisans, madams, shopkeepers, and plantation owners while hearing stories about their contributions and conundrums. Go back in time and see the world from their perspective. Lastly, stand in front of the homes and shops of the women who built this city. Hear their stories in the contemporary voice of their times and smash the myth of the "Fainting Southern Belle," the "Woman behind the man," and Chattel Slavery. From each ticket sold, $1 will be donated to the Halsey Contemporary Art Foundation and the Philip Simmons Foundation.
