Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Charleston, South Carolina.
Charleston is a seaport city and its historic downtown is on a peninsula formed by two rivers, Ashley and Cooper, flowing into the Atlantic, and protected from the open ocean by surrounding islands.
Charleston was captured in the Civil War without much property damage, so the historic part of town has buildings that are hundreds of years old. The current downtown skyline, with practically no tall buildings due to the city's height restriction ordinance, is dominated by church steeples and the stunning Arthur Ravenel cable-stay bridge completed in 2005 over the Cooper River.
The city is a major port on the eastern seaboard of the US and a popular destination for domestic and international tourists. Charleston's primary attraction to visitors is its historical setting and landmarks such as Fort Sumter, the island site of the start of the Civil War.
