Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina

Fall is a wonderful time in Charleston, with the cooler temperatures and crystal clear blue skies -- walking through the city is a pleasure. Be sure to tuck this copy of Charleston Gateway in your bag before you head out for the day. In it, you’ll find a wealth of information about our city and the many activities available

Cake lovers alert: We’re reprinting the Bullwinkel’s Whipped Cream Cake recipe in this issue, with some updates by our publisher, Delores, who loves to cook. The now-easier-to-follow recipe is still a challenge for those who love being in the kitchen, but definitely a little more manageable. If you make this cake, would you please share a photo of it with us? The photo shown with the recipe is Delores’ actual cake!
If you are visiting the Holy City during the holiday season, there is so much to do! We have articles in this issue with great suggestions for holiday performances and activities. Enjoy this merry making season in our beautiful city!

We are glad you choose to visit Charleston. Our city is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. Enjoy our history, delicious food and unique attractions. And, our one-of-a-kind shops and markets are the perfect place to get a head start on the holiday shopping. Please visit us on the web – either on Facebook or on www.charlestongateway.com. We’re always posting something new and fun for visitors (and locals)!
