About Charleston Area

Known as “The Holy City”, “Chucktown” and “2011's America's Most Friendly City”, Charleston is the oldest and second largest city in South Carolina. What makes Charleston such a draw to travelers is the fact that it has hot and humid summers for the beach lovers and mild winters for the snow haters thanks to its location on Charleston Harbor, which is formed by the confluence of two rivers. Thanks to this year round tropical warmth, Charleston offers a plethora of outdoor activities, dining and shopping.
One great thing about Charleston is that it is an easily walkable city; however, walking all day can leave you tired, and you may want to rest for a bit or get somewhere quickly. Feel free to jump on Charleston's free CARTA Dash Trolley system. Depending on which line you choose, you'll be whisked away to the Aquarium, the waterfront and City Market, or the historic city center. All three lines converge at several spots, making switching from line to line easy as you continue sightseeing.
There is no shortage of things to do or places to go while in Charleston, thanks to its rich history. Charleston boasts a number of tours and sites that cover events from the Colonial Era through the Civil War and leading up to the Contemporary Era. For visitors looking for some nautical fun, Charleston offers a Waverunner Safari Tour where you and your family are taken on a tour of the barrier islands on jet skis. If you prefer to stay dry while learning about Charleston, check out the more than 20 museums and art galleries in the city. Thrill seekers will also want to head to one of Charleston's five amusement parks to spend the day getting their adrenaline rush.
For local crafts and goods, make your way to King Street which is divided into three areas: Design District, Fashion District and Antique District. Sprinkled within each district are a number of great bars and restaurants where you can sample the local southern cuisine, try a specialty drink and rest for a bit. Radiating history, class and fun, it is easy to understand how folks are able to spend a whole day shopping on King Street.
It's no secret that the South is known for southern hospitality and cooking. Charleston provides a number of great southern, seafood, oyster bars and dining options for you and your family. While in Charleston, don't miss the signature drink of the south, the mint julep. Concocted of bourbon, sugar,  sparkling water and fresh mint, one sip will easily bring a cooling wave of relief during a hot and humid day in the city. Paired with a side of freshly-made crab cakes, it's a snack that completes your day! 
While spending time with the locals, you will want to participate in a number of their local events and festivals. For adults who want to party into the night, Charleston has a number of popular bars and clubs for every type of music and dancing. If you are a jazz fan, Charleston is the place to be thanks to the heavy influence of the Gullah community. If you need further proof, look no further than Eubie Blake's “Charleston Rag” and James P. Johnson's “The Charleston”.
With truly so much to do and see in Charleston, you leave knowing that there will be plenty to do on your next visit. While you may feel rushed and stressed when you get back to your everyday life, take some comfort in knowing you can always slow down and relax again on South Carolina's coastline.
