Welcome to Discover Charleston

The rich life of the Lowcountry comes from the natural beauty of seashore and saltwater, sweetgrass, pluff mud, dunes, riverfront estuaries and wildlife. But it doesn’t stop there. Charleston’s rich architectural history is apparent in the peninsula’s shops and restaurants, residential neighborhoods and parks, as well as the plantations, forts and small towns that surround us.

Food is at the center of Charleston life. Many of our restaurants are owned by skilled, imaginative chefs and restaurateurs that utilize ingredients found within a few miles and prepare them in the Lowcountry tradition. The bounty of the ocean, fertile farmlands, cultivated crops — like rice, tea and mushrooms — and strong local economy keep us winning national culinary awards and recognition.

Great weather, so many options for culture and entertainment, food, beauty and quality of life… and you.
