The Palms Hotel is a short drive from downtown Charleston, SC where you will have the chance to see some of the supposed haunted areas around the city. Ghost tours are the most popular ways to see these infamous sites, and hear the stories that have been passed down generation to generation.

Charleston has been an established city and has played roles in the Revolutionary War, as well as the Civil War. It has seen plenty of natural disasters over the years including horrific earthquakes and nasty hurricanes.
