CHS Insider: Ravenel Bridge between Charleston and Mount Pleasant SC
Ravenel Bridge

Charleston, South Carolina has received multiple awards, praise and recognition from Conde’ NastTravel and Leisure and Southern Living Magazines.  Why is Charleston getting so much attention and awards when there are so many places to visit and to live around the US and the world?  The answers lie in the City itself; Charleston has things to enjoy and experience like no other.  We aim to provide you with an Insider Guide to our wonderful city.

As an Insider, some of us grew up here and some have fallen in love with Charleston in all her beauty, history, food and wonderful beaches! We live here and we love sharing the best local information with you.

If you are planning a trip to our city then we hope our guides and links to information, things to do and places to stay, eat, and shop help you plan the best vacation.  If you are moving or thinking about a move to Charleston we have also tried to provide as much information on where to live or work and where to find the best schools in the area.


As Insiders we love Charleston and could go on and on.  We found this video that Southern Living created and we love how it summarizes our home town.
