Why Charleston?

Why Charleston? — The question is, “Why not Charleston?”

Recently voted the #1 city in the world by readers of Travel and Leisure, it’s easy to see why. Sunsets on the marshes. Walks down the historic streets of the Holy City. A vibrant night life that mixes the best of contemporary entertainment with old world sophistication. And then there’s the food.

Nationally recognized for the number of restaurants and uniquely created and presented dishes that can’t be refused. Downtown has an exciting food scene with many nationally recognized restaurants and chefs. King Street offers boutique shopping and fun nightlife. With such a rich history, there are plenty of museums and historic homes and churches to tour! You’ll also find also several historic plantations to explore just outside the city.

North Charleston offers outlet shopping, a riverfront park, and a vibrant food scene in Park Circle. Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island, and Isle of Palms are beautiful beaches just a short drive away. It’s easy to be active in the Charleston area, with great places to run, bike, boat, fish, surf, and paddleboard!

These are just a few of the reasons the Charleston region is one of the fastest growing regions in the country. The blend of international companies and established local firms help attract the best of the best.

One trip to Charleston, and you’ll never want to leave!
