Charleston, South Carolina has everything you'd expect from a classic, sleepy Southern city. It has great food, charm, soul, history and culture. It's been near the top of Travel and Leisure's "America's Favorite Cities" list recently, so let's look at some of the qualities drawing people of all ages to its graces.
With Charleston apartments for rent averaging between $500-$1100 from a studio to a 3 bedroom, depending on the location, the affordability of the city is high. Gas is currently 50 cents below the U.S. average and there are a plenitude of free things to do in and around the city. Folly Beach is a common rental area of college students and young professionals; West Ashley is affordable and sit 20 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from downtown. Live in downtown Charleston to be in the middle of the art scene or find a place in Summerville for that small town feel, explains ezinearticles.com.
Bon Appetit Magazine named Charleston's Husk Restaurant "Best Restaurant in America" last year. That's not the only culinary location popular with the locals who tend to lean toward down-home dishes like fried green tomatoes, boiled peanuts, fried okra, corn bread, fried catfish and shrimp and grits. Don't confuse this fried and homey food with a lack of sophistication. Charleston is also home to McCrady's, 2010 James Bear Award winner for Best Chef Southeast, reports epicurious.com.
Quality of Life
Nature plays a big role in the Charleston lifestyle. With its many parks, gardens and plantations, you can tour, you can picnic, you can frolic and you can lazily nap under a shade tree. Also, being on the coast offers glorious views of the vast Atlantic ocean along with the opportunity to tour the Charleston Aquarium and the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum.
Also, the city is home to many festivals including Spoleto Festival USA which has been delighting residents and visitors for 36 years. The festival has an international focus and lasts 17 days and nights during the springtime. The experience offers performances from a variety of performing arts that includes opera, theater, dance, chamber music, symphony and jazz music. Visit the website spoletousa.org for further history and photographs.
When residents are proud of their city, there's naturally a positive and inviting vibe. Charleston has this Southern hospitality in spades. People tend to be warm and well mannered with that unmistakable Southern charm. It's also a very dog friendly city, so you can take around Scrappy and Fluffy to many dog parks and pet events.
