The Most Friendly City in America

One of the South’s loveliest and best preserved cities, Charleston is an 18th century town, its skyline low rise and defined by the steeples of 181 churches.

Historic buildings have been restored and repurposed for residential and commercial use, and a most enjoyable stroll can be had past the many lovely private homes.

The old South lives on in the area’s plantations, including the classic columned mansion of Boone Hall, the model for Gone With The Wind’s Tara. History buffs will want to head to Fort Sumter, where the first shot of the Civil War was fired by Confederate forces.
