Charleston, South Carolina, is a city known for its enchantment and charm, as well as its fascinating beauty, history, and culture. Since its settlement in 1670 by English colonists, the charming historic seaport of Charleston has been a favorite vacation and relocation destination.

Steeped in history, Charleston is often called a "living museum."  Its past and present are intertwined like no other city and are evident in its culture, architecture, and famous gardens.

With its lively and historical festivals and cultural events, there's never a dull moment in Charleston. From the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition every February to the Spoleto Festival USA held each May, to the wide array of nightlife activities, there is always something going on in Greater Charleston. The mild coastal climate makes Charleston's world-renowned golf courses and beautiful beaches fun to enjoy year-round.
