If you like going to a historic mansion, this is for you!

According to many, there's no better example of antebellum life than here at the Aiken-Rhett House Museum.

Originally built in the early 1800s and then expanded by Governor William Aiken and his wife in the 1850s, much of the house's original style has been preserved. As you wander through, pay special attention to the period furnishings, the original wallpaper and the stunning bronze chandeliers installed by the Aikens. Also spend some time exploring the grounds: you can visit the slave quarters, the stables and the kitchens, all of which have been preserved to satisfy any history buffs yen for a taste of the Old South.

Sitting north of downtown Charleston, this museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes an audio tour. You can also buy a joint ticket for both the Aiken-Rhett House and the Nathaniel Russell House.
