Charleston is renowned for its Southern hospitality and historic charm. Walk along cobblestone streets lined with Spanish moss-draped trees, embrace the beautiful, centuries-old mansions and majestically preserved plantations and churches.
No matter where you turn, Charleston emanates a true historic feel, yet boasts a sense of modernism with its restaurants, shops and art galleries.
INDULGE. The Peninsula Grill inside the historic Planters Inn is home to the decadent Ultimate Coconut Cake. The 12-layer, cream-fi dessert is sold by the slice for diners or shipped whole across the country.
FIND. Since 1922, George C. Birlant & Co. has been offering period furniture, silver, and accessories, as well as handcrafted reproductions of the famous Charleston Battery Bench that dots the city's sidewalks and parks
ADORN. Croghan's Jewel Box has enchanted generations of Charlestonians with a brilliant selection of jew- els and gifts. The family-run business has occupied the same 18th-century Charleston Single House on King Street since William Joseph Croghan opened shop over 100 years ago.
SCREAM. Bulldog walking tours offer a glimpse at the haunted sites through- out town, but for a real fright, explore pre–Revolutionary War prisons during the dark of night.
