Charleston Travel Guide
The city's height restriction ordinance has kept the downtown skyline relatively low, giving Charleston a small-town feel. Its streets are ideal for walking, and usually have a quiet, relaxed pace -- though they can get pretty hectic during the summer months when tourists flock to this coastal city.
