In describing Charleston, TripAdvisor wrote "Historic Charleston is bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. The city feels a bit like it’s suspended in time, thanks to its antebellum architecture and surrounding plantation landscapes. Take in incredible views of the Battery and the French Quarter as you stroll the Waterfront Park, then become inspired by the cultivated beauty of the gardens at Middleton Place. At night, try a ghost tour for an introduction to the spooky side of the city." The food scene isn't the only draw! 

Additionally, Charleston was ranked the 11th best food destination in the entire world- ranking alongside of cities such as Rome, Paris, and Barcelona.
