There might not be another US city as rich in history and as willing to embrace it as the port of Charleston, South Carolina. Founded in 1670 and christened Charles Town after King Charles II, the city played a major role in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It’s location on the mid-Atlantic attracted pirates (most notably Blackbeard himself) and Charleston’s intricate involvement in the slave trade lead to a formal acknowledgement and apology in 2018.

The city blends traditional southern culture with West African, French and English influences. To stroll through downtown is to inhale the scent of magnolias and take in all Charleston offers. Indulge your senses with colorful art displays, outdoor theatre, strains of jazz drifting from the clubs and, of course, the aroma of delectable seafood.
Whether you are looking for historical museums, colonial architecture or maybe just the best bowl of jumbo ever, Charleston has it and then some. It’s worth your time to book a tour to sample what’s available. Especially recommended: Old Charleston Walking Tours and Bulldog Tours.
