Description:

"Ya'll come back now..."

Any place infamously known for instigating the Civil War should be a must-see on anyone’s travel list. Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina, where history stands still in the coolest of ways.

Charleston’s youth scene is ever growing and awesome, thanks to the university lying smack dab in the middle of town. Local bands, contemporary art, and a thriving theatrical community will introduce you to the heavier side of Southern Comfort. The bar scene is also killer - follow a group of stumbling 20somethings and you’re on the right track.

So pack your flip-flops, polos and pearls, and don’t forget to be polite when ordering some Shrimp and Grits and Sweet Tea. You’re south of the Mason Dixon line now.
