Why Choose Our Destination?
Southern hospitality, world-class meeting sites, famed golf and tennis resorts and a stunningly beautiful location make Charleston meetings productive and memorable. Couple this with being voted the number one city in the U.S. four years in a row by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine Reader's poll, and you have the perfect setting for your attendees. Whether you’re celebrating company achievements, hosting critical board meetings or looking to inspire and recharge your team, we can help you plan the perfect event. Stand on the site of the first shot in the Civil War. Come face to face with a giant sea turtle. Take a tour of an antebellum mansion. Climb aboard a WWII aircraft carrier. There are so many blossoming gardens, so many photo opportunities and so many reasons to come back and see us again. From the oceans and rivers to the newest multi-million dollar state-of-the-art athletic facilities, the Charleston area provides boundless sports-related opportunities for the enjoyment of the community and its visitors. We look forward to serving you and showing you...."Where history lives!"
