Charleston, South Carolina’s oldest and second largest city is truly beautiful, with an inviting southern charm that’s radiated through the magnificent antebellum architecture, opulent buildings and stunning parks. Founded in 1670, this seaport city is steeped with history and its downtown area – located between the beautiful Ashley and Cooper rivers – is packed with charming centuries-old structures.

Unlike many cities, Charleston’s cityscape isn’t dominated by huge concrete skyscrapers and glass-fronted office blocks. Instead it is awash with pretty church steeples and traditional buildings such as the Dock Street Theatre, which flood the city’s streets with charm and unique style. There are several museums, galleries and even a navy warship to visit and explore, as well the interesting ‘Fireproof Building’, which is said to be America’s oldest fireproof construction.

Be sure to visit The Battery, which is located just south of the downtown district. This historic site – now known as the White Point Gardens – is one of Charleston’s most interesting and important areas. Formerly a fort and Confederate battery during the Civil War, the gardens are now a lot friendlier and welcoming, with large pathways lined with huge oak trees, a number of historic monuments and large memorial sites. From the gardens you can enjoy views of the famous Fort Sumter.
