Charleston, South Carolina is rich with history, culture, entertainment, and southern charm. Located along the east coast of the United States, the city is situated around the Atlantic Ocean, Ashley River, and Cooper River which also forms Charleston Harbor. Known as The Holy City because of it’s churches, Charleston long ago established a law forbidding any structure from standing taller than the church steeples of the city. In affect, this made Charleston spread out much larger than most southern cities and providing the visitor with a huge area to cover if they wish to see it all.
If you happen to visit Charleston, be sure to stop at the Mount Pleasant Visitors Center under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge and pick up a copy of The Charleston Walking Tour by Alan Hartley. This fantastic little guidebook lays out a map of the historic district of Charleston complete with a few sample photos and descriptions of dozens of historic buildings and locations. Trust me: it will take you more than one day but probably not more than a week to make it through this guide and visit the history of Charleston.
