Charleston South Carolina City of Charm

Charleston, SC is a place where Scarlett O'Hara would feel welcome as would any modern day persona. The city is warm, inviting, and above all else -- historic.When locals talk about South of Broad they are talking about the heart of the city. This area dates back several hundred years and features the row houses that made the city famous, the houses of worship that anchor the city [did you know that one of the first synagogues built in the US is in Charleston?], and the people who give the city its charm.The city is best observed on foot.

Or, by horse drawn buggy. Make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes on and, if visiting in the summer, expect to be soaked in sweat! Bring plenty of fresh water and dress lightly. Enjoy the guided tours or simply purchase a map and take a tour yourself. Note the confederate building, Rainbow Row, the Battery, College of Charleston, and every point in between.

Make sure that you eat at one of the fine dining establishments; you will rave over the seafood! Note the oaks and observe the Spanish Moss on the trees.If you need more information, here is the city's site:
