South of Broad Walking Tour

Calling all Pat Conroy fans! The characters and Charleston vistas featured in Pat Conroy’s #1 New York Times best selling novel South of Broad come to life in a new walking tour produced by Old Charleston Walking Tours. The South of Broad Walking Tour is a two-hour tour narrated by professional guides, highlighting the streets and sites featured in Conroy’s 2009 hit novel, South of Broad.

The tour, available Tuesday through Saturday, begins at 11:00 am in the lobby of the Mills House Hotel at 115 Meeting Street and ends outside the Gibbes Museum of Art. The ticket price of $25 per person includes the walking tour, admission to the Gibbes, and a cocktail or dessert at Pat Conroy’s favorite Charleston restaurant, the aptly named Slightly North of Broad.
