Charleston is a southern city that all kinds of charm and history. This city dates back to days of pirate rooming the seas to the British capturing the city. It also has several of signers of the Declaration of Independence bury here, plus their birthplace. It also has two National Parks to visit.

One of the U.S.’ most talked about “hidden” gems is full of excitement for a younger crowd. One of Charleston’s main draws is its burgeoning food industry, which features both delicious southern favorites, like fried chicken and barbecue, but also new creations by innovative chefs using fresh, specialty ingredients. Sign up for an affordable culinary tour to help you get the lay of the land. Another perk of this charming city is its abundance of history. You don’t need a big budget to walk around taking photos of the stately mansions, colorful row homes, and historic buildings -- including one where the Declaration of Independence was read. If you need some vitamin D, soak up the rays with your friends on the beautiful Barrier Islands just outside town. At night, if the bar scene isn’t your thing, check out the city’s jam-packed event calendar, which includes just about everything from improv shows to country music concerts.

Charleston is a beautiful place! Very rich in old history and new food culture. If you're young and love to party, there's a vibrant late night scene. And if you're searching for good food, there are plenty of choices. I highly recommend the ghost tours and the carriage tours.

Charleston has been one of the top ten destinations in the US for over 10 years. There are so many things to do in Charleston, museums, forts, plantations, historic homes, resting place of signers of the Declaration of Independence, fantastic dining, great walking tours, wonderful lodging and so many others. Beaches are only a short ride away. I recommend that you spend at least a week here so that you can visit some of the available attractions but a month would be even better. Visit Charleston and see why I love this city.

Charleston is a historic coastal city in South Carolina and is ideal for a weekend getaway. The bars are lively, the shops are abundant, and the food scene is solid. I recommend trying their shrimp and grits, which is a renown local specialty.

The Port City of Charleston has a charm all its own. Enjoy strolling in the Market Place or along High Battery. Visit some of the finest museum houses in the south and enjoy Charleston's unique cuisine at some of our delightful restaurants.
