Charleston's beautiful historical buildings and lush gardens have earned this architectural jewel a reputation that draws thousands of visitors each year to wander its tree-lined streets and stroll through its unique shops and galleries. Hidden beneath this pleasant and exciting facade is a city with grace and charm, one whose neighborhoods and surrounding small towns offer a wealth of exciting lifestyle choices.

Whether it be across the Cooper River Bridge to inviting communities like Mt. Pleasant, Daniels Island and Sullivan's Island or a short drive to the nearby historical town of Summerville; the greater Charleston area affords an opportunity to reinvent your life. Truly, you may find it difficult to lead a sedentary existence when confronted with numerous golf courses, expansive bodies of water for fishing and boating and wide, sandy beaches that beckon any sun worshiper.

On nearby barrier islands, such as Edisto or Kiawah, residents can live in an exclusive country-club like setting, yet still drive along country lanes lined with moss-draped oak trees. In Summerville or Mt. Pleasant, newcomers can find affordable homes in well-established older neighborhoods or in one of several new neighborhood communities which are resurrecting traditional-style architecture and small town atmosphere.

Another important factor in the quality of life in this area is the emphasis that Charlestonians devote to the pursuit of cultural and educational achievements. With nine colleges and universities, highly regarded medical facilities and such notable cultural and artistic events as Spoleto, its annual festival of art, music and dance, Charleston has much to offer its residents.

With all of this, as well as an abundance of good restaurants, Charleston is perhaps the perfect place for those who love and appreciate conviviality and good friends. It has been said that life in the Low Country "is about enjoying the finer things, being eccentric, and always remembering that the past isn't over yet."
