Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina

Thank you for choosing Charleston Gateway to guide you through your visit to our beautiful city.  This year, 2015, marks our 60th year of publishing the most comprehensive and informative visitor’s guide in the Charleston area.  The Holy City is dedicated to preserving and sharing its unique and rich history; we believe you will enjoy reading about our history.  There are a few changes in this issue.  We have changed our layout and design to better accommodate the needs of the 21st century traveler, but have still included everything you need for a memorable vacation.

It’s spring in Charleston and the gardens of the Holy City are filled with fragrant, beautiful blooms.  There are lots of gardens to visit and enjoy this time of year, along with an almost endless array of outdoor festivals and events.  Take your time going through this issue and choose your favorites.

If you are visiting during Spoleto Festival USA, take advantage of the rich and varied schedule of performing arts throughout the city.  We have highlighted a few of the events and provided information about where to find the complete schedule.

Thank you for visiting Historic Charleston.  Please let us know how you enjoyed your stay, and how we can better serve you during your next visit!  Find us on Facebook--search “Charleston Gateway and the Charleston Map Guide,” and online, www.charlestongateway.com.  Our exciting new smart phone app, “Discover Charleston,” is available on Google Play and iTunes, helping you find everything you need on the go.
