At a Glance

Charleston is all about history, culture, food, and charming Southern hospitality. And this South Carolina port city, founded in 1670, is defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, and pastel antebellum houses. Stroll The Battery promenade and Waterfront Park; both overlook the Charleston Harbor. Shop along downtown’s King Street. Tour the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts. Visit famous landmarks; Ravenel Bridge, lighthouses, Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, and Angel Oak Tree. Relax on the beach or taste the history of Charleston – classic Southern cuisine reigns; shrimp and grits, she-crab soup, oyster stew, and good old fashion ‘cue.  Southern hospitality is everywhere!
