The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss
One of the best places to experience what Charleston has to offer is the Battery, also known as White Point Gardens. On the end of the peninsula, looking out at the harbor, you'll find a beautiful park with walkways featuring war monuments and other relics. Walk along the water, checking out the view of Fort Sumter while you absorb local history and atmosphere.
Golf must be the most popular sport in all of Charleston. You'll find some of the world's top courses nearby, offering challenging terrain with breathtaking ocean views. Choose from traditional or links-style courses in tightly wooded low-country layouts. No matter what your handicap, or what type of course you prefer, you'll find a great game near Charleston.
Get a Taste of Local Flavor
She-crab soup is a traditional Charleston delicacy you'll find in restaurants and cafes throughout the city. Made with crab roe, cream and sherry, it is a rich, creamy, delicious soup so good, you'll want to come back to Charleston just to have it again.
Shopping for Bargains
Charleston shopping offers something for everyone. From high-end shopping on King Street and at Charleston Place to the local crafts and antiques of Old City Market, if you want it, you can find it here. Traditional sweetgrass baskets, an art form brought over from Africa by slaves, are a unique choice. Still made locally, they can be found at craft shops and in Old City Market and make a lovely reminder of a memorable visit.
