FEAST
Yes, you must gorge on classic
Southern dishes like shrimp
and grits, she-crab soup and
fried green tomatoes. But do
not miss out on vibrant ethnic,
contemporary and cosmopolitan options that grace local
tables. As the New York Times
noted: Charleston is in the
midst of the biggest restaurant
boom in its history.

TOUR
Charleston is a living history
lab as expressed in the pioneering drive of Charles Towne
Landing, the Revolutionary
spirit of Fort Moultrie, the
complex history of Fort Sumter, and the sacrifices of the
Greatest Generation at Patriots Point Naval and Maritime
Museum.
SIP
Tea has grown in the Lowcountry
for centuries, and the first local
plants sprouted in Summerville.
The quaint town celebrates “the
table wine of the South” on a
Sweet Tea Trail winding from
downtown to a local tea farm.
Don’t miss “Mason,” a giant decanter that earned two Guinness
World Records.
SHOP
Local craft is celebrated at the
historic City Market, which
benefitted greatly from a recent remodeling. Browse
among myriad locally made
keepsakes, and pay special attention to sweetgrass baskets.
This African-born art form
has been celebrated in Smithsonian galleries, and exquisite
versions can grace your spaces.
REFLECT
Guided tours often deliver
what few textbooks ever could.
Whether exploring an antebellum plantation or strolling through narrow streets,
local guides provide commentary that makes every trip
to Charleston unforgettable.
From oak “allees” to storied
city alleys, history lives and
breathes here.
