Explore Historic Charleston

Always ranked very high on any list of the world’s best cities to visit (“Top 10” of Travel and Leisure’s 2018 list), Charleston has much to offer you when you visit. You will feel comfortable walking about, browsing the shops and enjoying the local cuisine, beaches and golf courses. Here are some of my favorite things to do:

  • Walk about the beautifully preserved historic area and waterfront
  • Enjoy the quiet of an early morning saunter
  • Contemplate Charleston’s history as you visit Fort Sumter
  • Tour the preserved mansions and gardens
  • Stroll the cobblestone streets
  • Admire the many beautiful flower boxes
  • Gaze at the narrow passageways between homes
  • Marvel at the beautiful gardens, fountains
  • Take a horse-drawn carriage tour
  • Feel the history
  • Dine at local restaurants (Magnolia’s and Eli’s Table are my favorites)
  • Visit any time of the year, as Charleston is a feast for all seasons
