Tastemakers Guide to Charleston

71 Places to shop, stay, eat, do and visit in Charleston, SC

Hello, Charleston! Get ready to walk aplenty and peer into the stunning, tucked-away courtyards lavished with creeping fig, palms, and trickling fountains. Lap up the hotel scene (Emeline, The Dewberry), savor Lowcountry cooking (Husk, The Ordinary) and retro-styled favorites (Little Jack’s Tavern, Maison), tour the myriad historic house museums (Aiken-Rhett House, Heyward-Washington House), or kick back upon a post-card perfect rooftop with a cool cocktail. And don’t leave town without a batch of Callie’s biscuit mix in tow. But we predict that you will plan a return visit—and soon. To quote author Pat Conroy, “You can never completely escape the sensuous, semitropical pull of Charleston.” So dive into our favorite Charleston finds— the best hotels and restaurants to shopping and more. And be sure to come back often as the Charleston Tastemaker selects will update frequently!
