If you like going to a beautiful home, this is for you!

Constructed at the turn of the 19th century by Nathaniel Russell -- a wealthy Southern merchant -- this historic home is best known for its impressive "flying" spiral staircase, which Moon Travel Guide describes as "a work of such sublime carpentry and engineering that it needs no external support, twisting upwards of its own volition."

Other interesting aspects include period furnishings and a majestic gold harp that dominates the music room. Recent visitors say this is the place to go if you're looking for insight into the more lavish side of Southern comfort. Note that to visit the Nathaniel Russell House, you will have to schedule a tour.

The Nathaniel Russell House sits in the heart of downtown Charleston, rubbing elbows with The Battery. It is open every Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 per person, but you can also purchase joint tickets which allow entry to both this house and the Aiken-Rhett House for just $6 more.
