South Carolina’s oldest and largest city, Charleston is nicknamed the Holy City because of an ordinance stating that no building can be erected higher than the tallest church steeple. With no skyscrapers, Charleston maintains its historic charm. Home to a stunning landscape and award-winning restaurants, Charleston offers something for everyone.

History buffs revel in the many historical sites throughout Charleston, including the Fort Sumter National Monument, where the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Nature lovers savor access to pristine beaches, the mighty Angel Oak tree, and the vast Lowcountry. Shoppers delight in the unique boutiques that line King Street. Art and culture enthusiasts enjoy performances at America’s first theater, the Dock Street Theater, and a number of festivals such as the annual Piccolo-Spoleto Festival. Foodies have their pick of top-rated restaurants as well as the exceptional Wine and Food Festival. Fans of fishing, golfing, tennis, boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding find ample opportunities to engage in these popular Charleston pastimes.
