The Leisure Guide to Charleston Straight From The Locals

Leisure is Luxury. It’s what we took to heart when making this Charleston city guide and who better to look to than the city’s most innovative cultural, culinary and musical exports: we’re talking about bands like SUSTO and Brave Baby to the established restaurateurs behind Charleston’s booming food scene.

Nicknamed The Holy City, Charleston is one of the oldest cities in the US and one of the most hospitable. Known for its southern charm, well preserved architecture and booming food scene, the people of Charleston know how to live the good life. On any given day, you can find its residents cruising the many waterways that surround the city, strolling down King St or partaking in a good old fashioned oyster roast. With beautiful waterfront scenery and delicious lowcountry cuisine, it’s no wonder Charleston consistently ranks as one of the friendliest cities in the world.

To find out where to go, we asked the city’s best where they dine, drink and most importantly, chill. So for those who need a break from their chaotic schedule or hectic work life — relax and welcome to Charleston.
