Charleston is welcoming approximately 5 million visitors each year. In 2015, Condé Nast named this city full of southern charm the number one Best Small City in America. And just recently, Travel + Leisure named Charleston number one in The World’s Best Cities. Needless to say, this little city is getting quite a lot of attention. So while downtown Charleston is packed with riveting history, beautiful architecture and great food, we think there are some pretty incredible places outside of the peninsula that are begging to be explored.
