Charleston in South Carolina

Welcome to the Beauty and History of Charleston, South Carolina

Beautiful, historic Charleston is located near the middle of South Carolina’s coast at the point “where the Ashley River and Cooper River meet to form the Atlantic Ocean.” It is the state’s second largest city and the county seat of Charleston County.

Charleston was originally called Charles Town in honor of King Charles II of England, and its nickname is “The Holy City” due to the many churches that help create its skyline.

 

 

Known for its rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, and mannerly people, Charleston has received a large number of accolades, including “America’s Most Friendly City” by Travel + Leisure in 2011 and in 2013 and 2014 by Condé Nast Traveler, and also “the most polite and hospitable city in America” by Southern Living magazine.

The city boasts numerous water activities and outdoor sports as well as an abundance of things to do and see as the history of the area is diverse and storied. There is a variety of restaurants, galleries, museums and tours that will make your visit to this wonderful city memorable. From the ever historically important Fort Sumpter, where the American Civil War began, to the South Carolina Aquarium, plus the many plantations that are open to visitors, you will be captivated by this jewel of a city.
