Relocate to Charleston for its history...Charleston is both a charming jewel of relaxed, traditional southern life and a vibrant hub ofhistoric charleston rainbow row twenty-first century amenities and opportunity. On quiet, downtown streets lined with oak trees, antebellum houses, wrought iron gates, and quaint gardens, residents walk leisurely to five-star restaurants, exquisite shops, business offices and stylish art galleries. Many Charleston buildings are well over two hundred years old, such as the Old Exchange, a masterpiece of Palladian architecture in which George Washington attended a grand ball in 1791, and whose dungeon once housed two signers of the Declaration of Independence. A number of old streets are still paved with cobblestones, which came to Charleston as ballast in colonial sailing ships. Entire blocks are devoted to aesthetic landscapes, such as White Point Gardens at the foot of the Battery, where cannons fired against pirates and during the Civil War. Today, the cannons are still there, but stand as silent monuments along promenades lined with oaks, azaleas and oleanders. A stroll by horse-drawn carriage along the harbor front offers fresh sea breezes and grand views of historic Fort Sumter, colorful sailboats and container ships entering one of America's busiest seaports.

Relocate to Charleston for its location...Surrounded by rivers, creeks and barrier islands, Charleston's greater metro area includes coastal beach communities, waterfront condominiums, spacious marinas, internationally-ranked golf courses, deep sea fishing charters, classic seafood restaurants, aquariums and maritime museums. Sullivan's Island, only a fifteen-minute drive from downtown, is an exclusive residential beachfront community whose windswept beaches, dunes and maritime forests once inspired Edgar Allan Poe. To the south, Kiawah Island resort features five championship golf courses, luxury accommodations, is rated by Conde-Nast Traveler as among the top island destinations in North America. Nearby James Island and Mount Pleasant are sought-after bedroom communities only five minutes from downtown Charleston with excellent public and private schools, county parks, and numerous residential properties with waterfront views.

Relocate to Charleston for its business...Inland, the city is ringed by a tri-county area in which business is thriving. The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce 2005 reports showed a ten-year job growth rate nearly 40 per cent higher than the national average, with more than 50,000 new jobs. The ledger for the Professional and Business sector during that period was even better, with a growth rate of 68.6 percent. More than five billion dollars in new capital investment during that period has kept the unemployment rate at 4.9 per cent, while recruitment of new industries such as Daimler-Chrysler and Nucor Steel, as well as the continued expansion of technology-based industry, the Medical University of South Carolina and the area health industry, plus maintaining the Gulf and Southeast coast's largest container cargo facility and a 5.4 billion-dollar tourism industry, all help keep the area economy strong.

Relocate to Charleston for its Dining and nightlife...With such a diversity of people, places and professions, the Charleston area offers a wealth of nightlife and recreation. With more than one hundred restaurants in the historic district alone, Charleston features a wide-ranging culinary flavor. Seafood and steak dishes are the specialties of a number of fashionable establishments, while wine and oyster bars are popular downtown as well. After dark, the old city comes alive along the waterfront on East Bay Street and down at the historic market area, where cafes and bars offer live music along rooftop and outdoor patios. Other popular nightspots include the Shem Creek area in Mount Peasant, where dining and clubbing is enhanced by romantic sunsets and views of incoming shrimpboats, and the busy coastline scene along Isle of Palms and Folly Beach, where party is synonymous with beach.

Relocate to Charleston for all its activities...Charleston is also well-stocked with a full slate of daytime activities. For the tourist and resident alike, there are carriage rides, city and private museums and museum houses, historic gardens and Civil War fort and harbor tours by boat. For the inquisitive, there is the South Carolina aquarium, the Patriots Point maritime museum, public and private art galleries, and ecological kayak tours.

Relocate to Charleston for its fishing, surfing, sailing, kayaking... The sporting life is one of Charleston's greatest traditions, and from public boat ramps, marinas, and private docks throughout the area, boaters go under sail and power for fishing, shrimping, racing, scuba diving, water skiing and pleasure activities. The city is surrounded on all sides by championship golf courses, state and county parks, and national wildlife refuge, and with a balmy, sunny climate, few days aren't perfect for a hike, bike, hunt, or eighteen holes.
