Living in Charleston

Charleston is a city that has many stories to tell. Its central role in the Civil War made the South Carolina city a center point for dramatic events that carried much historical significance. Just look around at the Victorian architecture that still adorns some of the classic-styled homes in the area, and you'll get an idea of how regal and dramatic life was back when our country was at war with itself. Some of those majestic structures were also plantations, and while the country has moved past that harrowing tradition, those sites and their natural surroundings still attract plenty of visitors today.
