Scenic Water Everywhere
The rich, 300 year nautical heritage stems from being a seaport city surrounded by beautiful resort islands. The Atlantic Ocean, Charleston Harbor and many rivers and marshes create stunning vistas that make Charleston unique.

The dining scene is active and broadening. With a steady supply of James Beard Award winning chefs, the restaurants push each other in creative fare - great fun. Experience the annual Food & Wine festival as well.


Rich Culture

As Charleston has evolved it has become more cosmopolitan while retaining its manageable size and unique Southern charm. The visual and performing arts scene is a vibrant and integral part of Charleston life. Shopping is also evolving as the fashion awards become more plentiful, and the sponsoring of  a popular Fashion Week every Spring.
