ALTA Has Planned Several Special Events and Tours

Market Street Circle Carriage Tour
Depart Charleston Place for a wonderful private tour of Charleston's Historic District in a horse-drawn carriage. During your carriage tour you may see any number of the "Port City's" major landmarks; the Battery, White Point Gardens, Rainbow Row and Charleston's oldest church, St. Michael's (circa 1752). During the carriage ride your guide will regale you with Charleston folklore and "insiders' " stories. After an hour, the carriage will return you to Charleston Place.

Middleton Place Tour
Middleton Place is an 18th century river plantation and National Historic Landmark. Home of Henry Middleton, President of the First Continental Congress, and his son, Arthur, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, it has never been deeded out of the family. The Gardens, begun by Henry Middleton in 1741, reflect the symmetry and elegance of 17th century France and 18th century England and are the oldest formal gardens in this country.

History and Mystery Walking Tour
Step back in time and see Charleston as George Washington did in the eighteenth century. This is a tour of pirates, patriots, and presidents that traveled the cobblestone streets of the fourth largest city in the American colonies. On this tour, you will be provided with stories of Charleston's shadowy 18th century past - some heart wrenching; others gruesome. You will visit historic graveyards and the Old Exchange Building.

Fort Sumter Tour
The Fort Sumter tour boat will take you to historic Fort Sumter in the center of Charleston Harbor, where the Civil War began. During the harbor cruise portion of your tour, you'll enjoy the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and entrance to Charleston Harbor, where Charlestonians are fond of saying, "The Ashley and the Cooper Rivers meet to give birth to the Atlantic Ocean." The Fort is a National Monument, maintained by the National Park Services. Located in Charleston's Harbor, it is only accessible by boat.

Michael F. Wille Memorial TIPAC Golf Tournament
The sixth annual Michael F. Wille Memorial TIPAC Golf Tournament will be held at Patriots Point Golf Course in Charleston. A South Carolina tradition since 1979, guests will enjoy great service, and the perennially awarded "Best Par-3 in the Lowcountry" 17th hole, an island green poised in the Charleston Harbor with sweeping vistas of Fort Sumter, Shem Creek and the historic downtown skyline.
