Rainbow Row in downtown Charleston

To experience Charleston is to visit historic downtown on the peninsula. There, one is transcended to pre-revolutionary times among the homes and churches that still stand and the protected neighborhoods that show off their soft colors during an evening walk, juxtaposed to the best and most unique restaurants and other tourist friendly attractions.

Charleston gardens

Charleston enjoys an annual climate of sunshine which brings with it a remarkable assemble of spring and summer colors among the different variety of South Carolina oak trees that together make up the natural beauty symbolic of the Low Country.

Shells at Botany Bay

There is no Charleston without its majestic beaches that are located within minutes of downtown or its suburbs. Natural beauty is constantly on display, such as the truly unique scenery of trees and sea shells that line the coastal waters of Botany Bay near Edisto Beach State Park.
