Charleston, Elegant and refined, Charleston mixes European charm with new world energy and excitement. Featuring beautiful buildings, winding streets and a touch of old world luxury. The city was founded in 1670 and boomed as a center for rice and indigo trading. Since then, Charleston has occupied a notable place in American history and its beauty remains famous throughout the world.

The streets of Charleston feature historic houses and narrow apartment buildings with stucco walls and wrought iron balconies.. There is something of a Caribbean touch to Charleston, with its palm trees and welcoming feel. After strolling through the historic district, most visitors head over to Waterfront Park, which features a landscaped square and boardwalks projecting into the river. White Point Gardens features lovely gardens, a good view of the water, and lots of gentle breezes to cool a visiting family. The Charleston Museum is the oldest in the nation, dating from 1773. The market area features old-fashioned open stalls where vendors sell all sorts of goods and services. Charleston is located on the end of a small peninsula that points into the famous Charleston Harbor, where traders and immigrants have disembarked for centuries. In the middle of the harbor sits Fort Sumter, the site of the first battle of the War Between the States. A wonderful museum within the Fort tells the full story. The city was home to many dissenting Protestant denominations and is filled with old churches, many of them the first of their kind in America. Indeed, Charleston Harbor has brought many cultures to mingle in this gentle city, and the influence of black, Protestant, Huguenot, and Jewish colonists is still felt.

There are numerous points of interest just outside the city. Charleston's famous beaches draw visitors from far away for sun bathing and relaxation. Just beyond Charleston is Magnolia Plantation & Audubon Swamp Garden, modeled after  plantation's over seas. The ornamental gardens are stunning in the summer with the flowers in bloom. Visitors can enjoy the wild flowers and alligators of the swamps from the safety of a scenic tram ride.

Charleston has earned raves for its beauty and its easygoing culture, as well as its value to families and travelers. 
Looking to experience old world charm and elegance in a friendly enjoyable atmosphere?? From the Harbor to the plantation, Charleston has lots to offer adults and families looking for a unique destination.
