Since 1955, Charleston Gateway has been produced by professionals who know the city and who are involved in many aspects of promoting tourism in Charleston. Visitors not only read Charleston Gateway in the hotel room, they take it with them. Many take it home to save for future use or to pass on to friends and family. Locals choose Charleston Gateway for the timely calendar of events as well as the informational editorial on the seasonal festivals such as Spoleto, and garden and historic tours. Our digest size makes Charleston Gateway portable and very user friendly. Charleston Gateway publishes a new issue 4 times a year. Ads and important information can be easily updated every three months.

Two years ago the Summerville Community Orchestra was spending more than $19,000 per year on high-priced ads in 5 different magazines. Since I took over marketing in 2009, we have reduced that number to approximately $2,000 per year for ads in Gateway Magazine only. Gateway gives us the biggest bang for our buck and is read and used by more tourists than any other magazine in our area. Amanda Kennedy-Colie has been our representative for 6 years and is the consummate advocate for our business needs. Highest recommendation possible.

The articles are interesting and I think most folks will want to save this handy little gem for future reference for their next visit. A+ on this publication!
