Charleston : Michelin's recommendations
Set on a 5.2- square-mile peninsula at the confluence of the Ashley and Cooper rivers on the South Carolina coast, the city of Charleston is like a grand Southern dame, venerable in her history, elegant in her architecture and genteel in her manner. Lovely buildings line Charleston's narrow streets and loom gracefully along the Battery overlooking Charleston Harbor, displaying excellent examples of wrought- and cast-ironwork. Boutiques, antique shops and restaurants abound, catering to a wide range of tastes and wallets. The first great victory of the Revolutionary War occurred here, as did the first shots of the Civil War.
