Charleston is America's most beautifully preserved architectural and historic treasure, with a rich 300 year heritage. The first decisive American victory during the Revolution, the first regularly scheduled passenger train service in America, the initial shots of the Civil War – Charleston is steeped in history. Step back in time and stroll the cobblestone streets of the historic district. Visit the plantation homes, tour the war-related sites like Ft. Sumter or experience the magnificent South Carolina Aquarium.
Charleston's collection of stately homes and museum houses includes the Battery and Rainbow Row, beautifully preserved waterfront homes in an array of pastel colours. Visitors to Charleston are constantly amazed at the quality and variety of restaurants that can be enjoyed, from southern-style to five-star French cuisine. Shopping in Charleston is just as diverse and exciting, including the quaint antique shops along King Street and the famous Old City Market to upscale shops and boutiques.
