History Loves Company
For over 300 years, our historic, seaport city has been making visitors feel welcome. From the cobblestone streets of the historic district to the shores of our resort beaches, Charleston offers a unique blend of history and culture. With world-class hotels, upscale inns and state-of-the-art meeting facilities, Charleston embraces the past and the present with Southern charm, grace and beauty. The Charleston area may be located on map, but it really exists somewhere else entirely. It abides in the hearts and minds of all who visit. Quite like a fairy tale, Charleston is place where charms dwell. You could say, it's one of the reasons we're on top of the world. Charleston is honored to have been named “#1 City in the U.S.” by the Travel + Leisure 2019 World’s Best Awards. The sentiment was also echoed in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards when we were voted "Top City in the United States" for the eighth consecutive year. Getting to Charleston is a breeze! When traveling by air, visitors arrive at Charleston International Airport. Centrally located for easy access to all parts of the South Carolina Lowcountry, Charleston International offers 175+ daily flights to over 25 non-stop cities. Your attendees will find it easy to get here, but hard to leave. Come explore the sights, sounds and flavors only found in one place: Charleston, South Carolina!
