About the location

Charleston, you could say, is a perfect confluence of traditional American values and Caribbean laze- philosophy. Upon arriving in this harbor - chic city, you instantly feel a wave of calm take over your senses. 

Known for its Palmettos, Low Country cooking, and perfect placement on the eastern seashore, Charleston has come to mainstream popularity in the past 5 years. And with good reason: it's whimsical, surprising, and mostly unforgettable. 

I gathered the information in this guide as a result of an ongoing obsession that lead me to visit the city 4 times in one year - say what? Yes, you could say I experienced "a connection", and I can only hope you will too. Charleston deserves all the love it gets, and one more admirer would be a valued addition to its collection.

Guide Highlights


As my guide notes; this is a no-brainer. A quick drive from Charleston, Savannah offers its own version of Southern Charm and hospitality.


Get ready for some low country cookin'. Charleston is exploding with cuisine from all walks of life and is an experience on a plate!

  • Very comprehensive guide with something for everyone

    This guide was great to help with planning for our trip to Charleston. It was very comprehensive, even laying out the geography of the area which was above and beyond my expectations. I especially loved the food recommendations (because obviously that is most important). This guide would not only be great for couples, but I also think it would be awesome for a girls trip :) Happy wild bumming!
