Charleston Real Estate Information and Homes for Sale in Charleston, SC…
The city of Charleston is located on a peninsula at the point where, as Charlestonians say, “The Ashley and the Cooper Rivers come together to form the Atlantic Ocean.”
With its rich, 300-year heritage, Charleston is one of America’s most charming and beautifully preserved cities in the United States. A “living museum,” Charleston contains more than 3,500 historic homes and buildings dating back to the 1690s.
Though world famous for its streets lined with grand live oaks draped with Spanish moss and beautiful and historic pastel-colored homes along the waterfront, Charleston also offers a variety of museums and historical attractions. Most notable is the Old Exchange and Customs House, finished in 1771. The building features a dungeon that held various signers of the Declaration of Independence, hosted events for George Washington in 1791, and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788.
Charleston is also the location of Fort Sumter, the reputed site of the “first shot” of the Civil War.
The South Carolina Aquarium, Audubon Swamp Garden, and Cypress Gardens are a must-see for all nature lovers.
