About Charleston, SC

Charleston cuisine is all about celebrating the area's seafaring and agrarian cultures, reveling in the abundance gathered from the waters, gardens, and fields, and being embraced by some of the world’s most gracious hospitality.

Creativity is imbued in every part of Charleston’s culture. From its art and architecture to its food, music, and pursuits of the people who call it home.

Charleston has cobblestone streets and historic landmarks aplenty, but it's the stories that come to life through the people, art, architecture, food, and fashion that capture the world's imagination and heart.
