About Charleston

 Downtown Charleston 

 The city of Charleston is known for its cobblestone streets, southern architecture, and rich history. Downtown Charleston is a historic district in the heart of the town. It also features fabulous ocean views with the historic Fort Sumter House in the distance.  

 Beaches in Reach 

 This peninsula of Charleston does not have actual beaches on it. However, it offers a variety of bars and restaurants overlooking the water. If you are looking for quick access to public beaches, you're in luck! There are five beaches, all within a 30-minute drive of downtown. Kiawah Island, Folly Beach, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, and Seabrook Island offer their own unique getaway from the busyness of Charleston.  

 Each beach gives you a different experience. Seabrook Island is a private community that is very laid back. Kiawah Island is known for its gorgeous fairways, while Folly Beach has a lot of surfing opportunities.  

 So Much To Do  

 For those looking to stay in the heart of Charleston, there will be plenty of fun and entertainment. It's all over the city!  

 One of the most popular things to do is to take a Walking Tour. Downtown Charleston is full of historic homes, churches, and landmarks, and taking a guided walking tour is a great way to learn about the city's rich history and architecture. Some popular tour companies include Bulldog Tours, Charleston Footprints, and Charleston Sole Walking Tours. 

 While you're out, be sure to visit the Charleston City Market. This historic market is home to over 300 vendors selling everything from handmade crafts to Gullah sweetgrass baskets. You can also sample local food and drinks, like boiled peanuts and sweet tea. The City Market is a must-visit for anyone who loves shopping and local culture.

The Battery is a historic seawall and promenade that offers stunning views of Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter. Nearby, Waterfront Park is a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery, with a large fountain, swings, and a pier. You can also take a harbor tour from the nearby docks to see the city differently.
