About Shem Creek History Tour with Shrimp Boil
This 2 - 2.5 hour event combines everything we love about the Lowcountry. We start with a leisurely walking tour through the Shem Creek Park and end on the dock in front of Vickery's Bar & Grill. We will share the history of Shem Creek from its early use in the 1700's through today and its importance to the Shrimping Industry in Charleston. We end with a shrimp boil & free drink at Vickery's.
