Charleston Architecture 101

Charleston exists as one of North America’s most architecturally significant destinations. Called the Holy City, a nod to the many church steeples that dominate the city skyline, Charleston is a preservationist’s muse with three centuries of well-preserved history on display at every turn. The details of this architecturally rich city reveal themselves when the peninsula’s sidewalks and seawalls are explored on foot, so scroll on and get ready to #ExploreCharleston!
