A few other theaters make up the Theater District, with some undergoing renovations.

Teaming with Southern charm, Charleston is brimming with beautiful homes and gardens along its charming avenues. History buffs will particularly enjoy Chalmers Street, one of only eight remaining cobblestone streets in the city. It also features the Old Slave Mart Museum, a massive structure where enslaved people were sold off to work on plantations at the Antebellum Slave Auction Gallery. Now, the market serves as a meeting place for sellers to hawk their goods, and visitors can take a self-guided tour to learn about America’s history of slavery. The museum adds extra context for visitors who tour homes of plantation owners after the fact.
