Check out Blossom, located in the French Quarter, for low-country cuisine, seafood, and wood fired oven pizza. Blossom offers artfully executed low-country fare in charming surroundings. Its fish dishes are perfectly executed and the fried chicken with biscuits and gravy is not to be missed.

Finally, treat yourself at Husk, a critically acclaimed restaurant featuring a daily rotation of seasonal southern dishes.  From the inventive salads, mouthwatering burgers, and creamy grits, there’s something for everyone.  If barbecued South Carolina Broccoli is available, don’t pass it up (we didn’t). Reservations may be required so plan ahead.

HOW TO GET THERE

Flying into Charleston International Airport is the best way to access the city by air. The airport is located 12 miles (19 kilometers) from the city center, a 25-minute ride in normal traffic.  Local transportation offers bus rides from the airport to downtown for a $2 fare or shuttles are available for $15 per person and may be requested with 15 minutes’ notice.  Taxis are obligated to charge a minimum of $15 to transport visitors to the city center.

American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, and United all offer flights to the city. Those traveling from closer cities may be interested in reaching Charleston by Amtrak, which operates rail service along the East Coast and connects to the rest of the country.

Driving to Charleston is also quite easy. From Interstate 95 – which runs north to south – take Interstate 26, which will lead visitors directly to downtown. Charleston is also accessible by U.S. Route 17, which connects the city with other coastal spots in South Carolina.

BOTTOM LINE

From the rich history embedded in the city and its museums to the well-preserved Antebellum architecture to delicious local food offerings, Charleston promises a charming, educational, and relaxing getaway.  Add the ghost stories and quintessential Southern hospitality to the mix and it’s no wonder so many people make multiple pilgrimages to the Holy City.
