Charleston: Shem Creek Culture Tour

2. Charleston: Shem Creek Culture Tour

Experience the only publicly available historic walking tour in Mt. Pleasant - an area that dates back just as long as the peninsular of Charleston but that most people never have the opportunity to learn about. Start the tour by meeting your local guide with the City of Charleston. After a brief introduction, take a short walk to the oldest house in Mt. Pleasant to talk about the area's first settlers and a famous revolutionary war battle.  From there, head over to Shem Creek proper to take an insider look at the shrimping industry, a staple of the area for many generations with several seafood markets with a variety of species. Watch as the tour guide shows how to throw a cast net or bring up a crab trap for an up-close view of some blue crab. At the end of the tour, leave with a well-defined sense of the wonderful culture this creek has hosted since the first colonists and well before that.

What people are saying about Mount Pleasant

I took this tour with my sister and college age nieces and all of us really enjoyed it. We were paired up with a couple other people (it was nice to get to know them too). We were glad it was a small group where we felt comfortable asking questions. We also really liked how casual it was, the time of day (before the bars/restaurants got too busy) and the close proximity between the three restaurants we went to. It was fun to try some different appetizers that we maybe wouldn't have otherwise tried (the food was really good). We loved the area by the water. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the area and made it fun! We definitely would recommend this tour!

Bryan was a great tour guide. He was interesting, funny and informative. Loved both the the historic aspects of the tour as well as information about shrimping and crabbing. This tour far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend taking this tour. I look forward to taking some of the other tours he offers next time I visit Charleston.

Captain Bryan was knowledgeable of his city. Great personality! Went out of his way to make the tour enjoyable. The restaurants chosen were great choices and even returned to one for dinner the next evening. Highly recommended!

Captain Bryan was terrific in explaining the history of Shem Creek while we dined on an assortment of appetizers. I would highly recommend this tour.

A fun and different tour. Captain Bryan was fun and very knowledgeable about the Shem Creek area. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone
