At a Glimpse: Charleston, South Carolina

Updated: Mar 17

I have been in love with the city of Charleston, South Carolina ever since I first visited as a child. The aquarium, museums, and incredible food have had me coming back again and again. The City Market is ever changing with new and unique artists. The annual Cooper River Bridge Run brings over 40,000 runners and their families to the city for one of the cities biggest events in April. Southern hospitality is the standard and luxury is the reputation of the former capital of South Carolina. There is always something new and exciting going on in Charleston. From going to the beach in the summer, shopping in the spring, dining in the fall, or seeing the James Island Christmas Lights during the holidays; there is something for everyone in one of the most beautiful and abundant cities in the southeast. Below are a special selection of local recommendations and tourists' favorites from the "Holy City" for you, our valued T&M blog readers.
