Charleston, S.C., is a place loaded with history; think the start of the Civil War. This fall, the city hosts the third annual Museum Mile Weekend, from Sept. 23-25. A pass, $25 for adults, $10 for kids, gets you admission to 13 sites along and around Meeting Street in the historic downtown, and many of those are offering special programs during the weekend.
Launched in 2008, a cooperative effort among non-profits, Charleston's Museum Mile features the richest concentration of cultural sites open to visitors downtown, which includes six museums, five nationally important historic houses, four scenic parks and a Revolutionary War powder magazine. You can buy tickets online at Charleston Museum Mile, and check out all that is offered.
