Mini-Guide: Charleston, SC

One can't help but slow down in Charleston. Gracing the cobblestone streets are stately mansions, ancient trees draped with moss, and people who welcome you with a smile. Its history is one of the longest and most diverse in the country, and still, the Holy City surprises you with every visit. A seductive blend of old and new, it's no wonder that dear friends of ours chose Charleston for their honeymoon.

With only a few days in Charleston, our friends asked us how they should spend their time. Naturally, we jumped at the challenge. The Compass & Key itinerary for wandering Charleston is a full day packed with ideas to discover the architectural and natural beauty of the city, including tasty stops along the way. Our mini-guide also features curated destinations for lodging, dining and attractions. This is Southern charm at its best.
