is warm.

The weather is nice, too.

We greet those who visit the Charleston area with warmth and open arms. Our hospitality is legendary. It’s not something we teach. Friendliness and graciousness are in our roots. People you meet in Charleston look you in the eye and smile. Spend some time at any of our beautiful beaches, sprawling plantations, local boutiques or attractions and you’ll notice our residents make you feel right at home. The history you see in the Charleston area is real and alive. Our well-preserved architecture is home to families and forward-thinking businesses. The landmarks and history you see are not replicas. They are as real as the massive oaks that dot this area. What you see and experience in Charleston is genuine. Just like our hospitality. 2 |

TOURS WITH A TWIST AFRICAN AMERICAN TOURS

MILITARY TOURS

African American history has shaped the city we know today. There are many African American tours offered where you can learn about the lives and contributions of enslaved people, the Civil Rights Movement in Charleston, and the unique culture and art derived from African American traditions still alive today. The long-awaited International African American Museum is scheduled to open in 2020.

From the Continental Army’s admirable efforts during the Revolutionary War to the first shot fired in the Civil War, the Charleston area has a legacy of military milestones, including the first combat submarine to sink a warship, and the Citadel, the military college founded in 1843.

CULINARY TOURS

See how Charleston’s most storied residences deck the halls, discover holiday traditions passed down from our city’s earliest families and hum along with Gullah spirituals and holiday tunes. Immerse yourself in Charleston’s history and holiday spirit with a holiday tour.

Go behind the scenes with some of Charleston’s best chefs on a culinary tour. Learn the history of Lowcountry cuisine. Sip savory cocktails and get a taste of the vibrant and varied food scene in Charleston.

STUDENT TOURS Home to multiple colleges and universities, Charleston integrates education into every part of our experience from history to hospitality to art and culture, to marine biology cruises and archeology digs. We’ve got something to see, do and taste for every educational group.

CHRISTMAS IN CHARLESTON

RELIGIOUS HERITAGE When you look out over the Charleston skyline, you see a horizon dotted with steeples and palmetto trees. With over 400 places of worship of different denominations throughout the city and a long history of religious tolerance, it’s easy to see why Charleston truly is “The Holy City.”

ECO-TOURS The Lowcountry is home to beaches, marshes, river ways and islands just waiting to be explored. If you’re eager to catch a dolphin sighting or see all of the creatures that call the rich estuaries home, these ecotours are for you.

WELCOME TO CHARLESTON! There are a few things that are helpful to know before visiting Charleston by motorcoach. Due to the unique and sensitive nature of the Old and Historic Districts which include numerous narrow streets and residential areas, the city created a route for large buses. This route is shown on the map provided. We ask that you fill out an application to request permits prior to visiting the Historic District. Our Tourism staff will review the information you provide and will issue permits with the best route, loading/unloading zones and parking for your specific needs. This program is in place so that you as an operator and your guests have an enjoyable experience while visiting Charleston. We all rely on GPS, but its use in the area can lead you to streets that are far too narrow to safely navigate. The city has released an interactive map for motorcoaches that will help you get to your destinations without the use of GPS. https://gis.charleston-sc.gov/interactive/motorcoach/ Please feel free to contact me directly with any special needs or questions you may have while planning your visit to Charleston. Sincerely, Amy Southerland Tourism & Special Events Manager

A sampling of our services include: • Personal and curated experiences with local residents. Artists. Musicians. Culinary luminaries. Brewers and Distillers. Charleston’s Creative Community. • Excursions – both customary and bespoke – tailored to address each conference demographic. Tours of every Discipline. • Sporting Activities that include but are not limited to world-class Golf, Shooting Sports, Salt-water Fishing, and Relationship-building Exercises. • Off-premise Breakfasts, Luncheons, Receptions, and Suppers in Private Mansions, Historic Buildings, Plantations, and uninhabited Barrier Islands. • In-house Transportation Solutions. We find – and our customers agree – that true luxury isn’t always found in monuments of Italian marble, Egyptian cotton, and Chinese silk. Today’s luxury is made of experiences and memories; of interaction with local residents who have a story to share and tell. In a world of constant connectivity with millions of faceless entities, today’s luxury is interpersonal, communal, and truly social.

Visit The Charleston Museum, along with a host of others at museummile.org. • She-crab soup originated in Charleston and was created by William Deas, butler of the former mayor Goodwyn Rhett.
