It will only take one visit to the city of Charleston to fully fall in love with its warm Southern charm, riveting history, and decadent culture before you decide to return with the prospect of buying a home. Located in a geographically beautiful region referred to as the Lowcountry, Charleston truly has it all. With a list of awards as long as my arm, Charleston has been recognized as "America's Most Friendly," "Second Best-Dressed," and "America's Sexiest City". Awards like that can make a city sound flashy, but you'll soon find that the things you love the most about Charleston are often the simple things like watching a sunset against the backdrop of the unique Charleston skyline or enjoying a stroll through the historic streets of downtown.
People travel from all over to experience what local chefs call "sophistication in southern cuisine." It's not only sophisticated, but it's international and unique with restaurants experimenting with traditional Southern dishes while adding a pinch of Thai zest or perhaps a dash of Japanese essence. The Gullah is a group of African Americans who make their home within the Lowcountry, and within this culture you can find some great food with dishes like Cream Da Crab Soup and Shrimp & Grits.
Named the #1 Tourist City in America by Conde Nast for a reason, you won't run out of activities for the family to enjoy. The golf courses in South Carolina are plentiful as well as beautiful, and there is always live music to be found on any day of the week. From Tanger Outlets to mom-and-pop antique shops, Charleston is without a doubt one of the best shopping destinations in the nation.
