- 0.0Food Scene
Considered one of the best foodie cities in the USA, Charleston is famous for its low country cuisine and bevy of trendy restaurants. For a crash course in the city's best eats, consider spending a few hours with Charleston Food Tours. The company offers seven tours, ranging from one dedicated to the city's best desserts to a private dining experience in the home of a local James Beard award-winning chef.
Past visitors raved about the tours, especially the knowledgeable guides. According to reviewers, this is a great activity if you're interested in the Holy City's food scene as well as its history. Just make sure you go hungry – a few travelers made the mistake of eating before their tour and walked away stuffed.
Tour times and days vary by tour. Most tours cost $65 per person and last a little more than two hours. Keep in mind that you'll be walking for most of the tour, so you'll want to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. For more information on tours and to purchase tickets, visit the Charleston Food Tours website.

#1 The Battery
Many visitors say you can't leave Charleston without seeing this stretch along the city's southern tip. This row of Southern-style mansions overlooking Charleston Harbor was formerly the heart and soul of the city's maritime activity. Today, the area attracts camera-toting tourists from all over the country.
As you explore this picturesque neighborhood, make sure to also spend some time in the nearby White Point Gardens, where several Civil War relics and memorials commemorate the city's role in the battle. Start your tour of the Battery at the 12-acre Waterfront Park (home to the giant pineapple fountain featured on many Charleston postcards), then follow the walking paths on East Battery Street for the nearly mile-long stroll to White Point Gardens. If you're staying at one of the hotels or bed-and-breakfasts located downtown, you can easily walk along the Battery from your digs. If you're driving to the Battery, you'll find some limited street parking, and some lots closer to Waterfront Park. Bus route No. 211 provides service to Waterfront Park and East Bay Street.
