Charleston, SC

Charleston's rich history has given the city an air of intrigue that few can resist. Once considered the cultural and economic center of the South, Charleston's extravagant way of life suffered a setback with the outbreak of the Civil War. Now re-established as a leading center of commerce and industry, Charleston's numerous historic sites such as Fort Sumter, the site of the war's first battle, and the many antebellum mansions that dot the city's streets continue to bring tourists. Outside magazine named Charleston a 2010 Best Town due to its low unemployment, local arts scene and warm hospitality.
