“Yes, the region’s unofficial trademark dish, shrimp and grits, is gluten-free. But it’s the natural Lowcountry beauty, distinctive architecture, and burgeoning (and GF-friendly) dining scene that make South Carolina’s historic city one of our favorite places for a hearty helping of Southern hospitality.” – Gluten Free Forever Magazine

Ready to work up an appetite? Get ready to #ExploreCharleston! Gluten Free Forever Magazine recommends a leisurely walk along The Battery, an afternoon shopping on King Street, named among the nation’s top 10 shopping streets by U.S. News and World Report, and a visit to the Gibbes Museum of Art, which houses more than 10,000 works of stunning Southern art.
From Cannon Green’s house-made pickles and baby beet salad to The Grocery’s wood-roasted fish and fried oysters with deviled-egg sauce, Charleston’s gluten-free options are both exquisite and endless.
