Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Charleston Area, South Carolina your home away from home

Charleston is a waterfront city which successfully combines colonial history, antebellum architecture and wonderful food. It is popular with American tourists as well as overseas visitors due to its unique history and beautiful location.

Things to Do in Charleston Area, SC

One of the best ways to discover the Charleston area is by taking a walking tour with a local guide. Learn the history of the first permanent settlement in South Carolina and tour the many historic buildings and churches. In the summer heat you may prefer to take a horsedrawn carriage ride around the sights, finishing at the waterfront park. Shopping for local souvenirs at the Old Slave Market will include seeing woven sweetgrass baskets. Charleston’s cuisine is legendary and sampling the local oysters and she-crab soup is a treat, although the soup can be very rich. Scenic drives, bicycle rides and tours along the scenic byways will reveal many plantation homes which are now open for tours. Boat trips can be taken to Fort Sumter where the first shots of the Civil War were fired or visitors can head out to the nearby beaches to relax, fish or swim.
