We love this place!

Wow! What a fantastic town to explore, there is so much to do, see, eat and buy here you wouldn't believe it. This town is FULL of historydating back futher than the Revolutionary War and buildings as old. Visit lots of great store and shop until you drop or run out of money. There a hundreds of restaurants in this town, it would take you months to eat at all of them. One thing I will say is you feel safe in this town, every one is so nice and friendly and walking at night is the same. Plenty of tours museums and much more, so come take a look and see what wonder this town has to offer.

There is so much history in this town!

    Lighthouses are the thing here, and the city is so wonderful-like back in time 100 years. Good presentation

    These sweet-grass baskets from my ancestors is very interesting ... I will come visiting soon. Great page.

    If you are visiting Charleston, please do not let your first meal come from a mid-grade buffestesque BBQ. The food here is wonderful . . . instead, try Muse on Wentworth. Fast and French on Broad Oak on Broad ($!)

    For a great deal on woven baskets go to the thrift stores and Goodwill stores on Rivers Ave. in N.Charleston and buy 6-8 different styles and sizes of baskets all in one plastic bag for $2.99.

    I absolutely love Charleston, SC! I have been there twice and am going in July. I always stay on Kiawah Island just off the beaten path from Charleston. It is a kind of island that you go to to escape from the real life. A bit pricey, but well worth it!

    A great page on one of my favorite southern cities. I lived just two hours from Charleston for 15 years and visited there often during that time. Loved it especially in winter when it wasn't so HOT.
