Things To Do in Charleston

The over 4 million tourists that visit Charleston area each year come for several reasons. The ambiance of our historical city, friendly people, beautiful scenery, amenities, spectator sports, shopping, world-class restaurants…are just a few reasons why the Lowcountry area is so popular.

The large tourist volume helps sustain such amazing cultural and recreational amenities which aren’t found in cities with similar populations. From the world-class symphony orchestra to the Gibbes Museum of Art to college sports to the historical homes tours, there is always something to do. And, when you live here, you’ll be able to enjoy and take advantage all that Charleston offers….
