If you are here for BCT/AIT graduation or visiting the Lawton/Fort Sill area, I highly recommend visiting The Holy City! The chapel alone is worth the trip out there and they have a few other interesting areas to see. They have a small gift shop...More
My daughter, granddaughter and I were in Lawton OK for my grandsons graduation from boot camp, we all went to holy land and on the way you drive through a free range wildlife park Longhorns and buffalo are all along road right next to car...More
Really enjoyed the visit. Walked around all the buildings, quite amazing how they were built. The gift shop was closed. My husband went several times to the show as a child and still talks about it. But we enjoyed just walking around. Some areas were...More
We didn't stay long due to time but there was instantly a feeling of reverence. It was well laid out with the various replicas you will recognize. You could imagine you were at the real locations. I wish we could have seen the play.
I think it looks kind of creepy. The chapel looks weird. I’m catholic and you can’t compare that to any catholic chapels.
We didn’t look at everything. We left after 10 minutes. It’s hard to describe, but it didn’t catch my attention at all.
WOW what an amazing beautiful place. We can not wait to come back in April for the Play. I will be coming back time and time again. I am sad it took me so long to find this place. My kids were in aww over...More
I actually remember the WMWR back when I was nine years old or so. I never got closer to The Holy City until today chasing a geocache. I went to their store and talked to two very charming people who worked at the store. The...More

The Holy City, or Holy City of the Wichitas, as it is formally known, is basically a huge outdoor stage set. It is used to host the annual Easter Pageant that is held of course the night before Easter Sunday; on the grounds are the various buildings used during the Play such as for the Last Supper, etc. The buildings/sets can all be visited and you can walk around on the various stages. Not sure when they built the Holy City but it was probably back in the 40s or earlier. The hill across from the stage set serves as a natural seating area for the thousands who come to see the play. Also on the grounds are a beautiful chapel and a decent gift shop. More recently a large statue of someone's view of Christ was erected.

West Ashley is a long way from either of the Red's locations. Never heard of Sunflower Cafe. MP will take the morning, then you plan to leave for Beaufort in the afternoon??? Beaufort should be a day trip, w/all you want to fit in, not just an afternoon. Make sure that you make dinner reservations for Kiawah. Also, it will be a tad bit warm, to say the least, make sure you have somewhere to clean up, before you go to dinner. Day 5 is crazy. You definitely need to slow down and...More
Kid Friendly Breweries... (1 Replies)
We're headed to Charleston for a week with some friends. We all have kids, ages 1-3, and we all love craft beer (not the kids, obviously!). We're trying to hit up a few breweries that are a little more on the kid friendly side. I know Holy City has a decent sized outdoor patio, any other suggestions? The good thing is that we will be there during the week so we'll be avoiding any crazy weekend crowds.

Coast Brewery, in North Charleston, had a number of people with toddlers when I was there last fall so I guess it is kid friendly.
Hall's Gospel Brunch or High Cotton? (3 Replies)
Hi there! I've been lurking on this forum for quite some time and have learned SO much. Now I'm down to the nitty-gritty and need a little help on some specifics. I am traveling to Charleston the first week in October with my lifelong best friend (we met in Kindergarten and this trip is to celebrate FIFTY years of friendship!). We are staying in a VRBO very near Queen Street Grocery and are excited to explore the Historic District, etc. Our plan on Sunday is to attend church at 9:00...More

It will come down to personal preference, but I would say High Cotton.
