One of America's most charming cities, Charleston woos travelers with its cobbled streets, world-class dining scene and colorful history. Allow yourself to be smitten by the town as you jump aboard a carriage tour, the most popular way to explore Charleston's downtown sights, like the City Market and Old Exchange building. After working up an appetite, dine at one of James Beard Award-winning chef Sean Brock's restaurants, McCrady's and Husk. We recommend heading to historic Broad Street for its mix of historic buildings, residences, restaurants and bars.
While Charleston is known for its historic district, the city also has pristine beaches nearby perfect for escaping the crowds. From Isle of Palms to Folly Beach, see the city’s best beaches.
