Had the opportunity to visit Christ Church and enjoyed every minute. Very informative guide as we entered the church that explained the history of the church as well as some of the area. Beautiful architecture and stained glass windows. A MUST see.

This is a must see visit whenever you are on the Island. Whatever your faith you cannot help but marvel at the massive live oak trees covered in spanish moss! The church is a historic treasure!

The setting of the church is beautiful. It’s among old trees and alongside an old cemetery. The church has been kept in wonderful condition. The outside and inside were decorated for Christmas.
