Every spring, the city of Charleston comes into full bloom as warmer weather arrives. Birds are chirping, jasmine and azaleas are blooming, and visitors and locals alike are celebrating the arrival of the Historic Charleston Foundation‘s Festival of Houses and Gardens.
Set in the heart of the Charleston’s Old & Historic District, this series of award-winning tours and events showcase Charleston’s distinctive architecture, history, gardens and culture.
