Venue Information

Plan your visit

Charleston is a beautiful, eclectic, historic waterfront city that offers many opportunities for cultural and recreational activities. The city’s historical character is reflected in the stately homes looking out of the Charleston harbor at Fort Sumter. Many music venues and theater groups provide entertainment throughout the year. Several city and county parks offer year-round recreational activities, including camping, canoeing/kayaking, biking, and running. Additionally, the coastal location is ideal for anyone who enjoys fishing, boating, and other water activities, such as surfing, sailing, paddle boarding or ocean kayaking. The nearby barrier islands have beautiful beaches, and Charleston’s moderate climate makes them suitable for enjoyment virtually year-round.
