One of the most charming cities in the United States, Charleston offers the perfect mix of history, arts, and activities.

Travelers seeking Southern gentility would be wise to visit Charleston—and wiser still to fly nonstop from MidAmerica St. Louis Airport on Allegiant Airlines.

Charleston, South Carolina, is a small city offering big possibilities for your next vacation. Explore the Historic District’s cobblestone streets on foot, or take a seat on one of the city’s many horse-drawn carriages. Charleston City Market is a shopper’s paradise, offering everything from handmade souvenirs to luxury jewelers. Dine on fresh oysters and aged steak, and sip a cocktail on a rooftop bar. The romance of the city can be found on every corner.

Charleston offers a variety of architecture unparalleled in the United States. You can walk through colonial homes, antebellum mansions, forts, and unrestored plantations. The city’s buildings can dazzle, educate, or, if you choose the right tour, frighten. But for all of its plantations and architecture, Charleston is a city on the water. Whether strolling the Promenade or enjoying the white sand on one of the city’s five barrier islands, the opportunities to enjoy the sea breeze are endless.

Add in the famous Lowcountry cuisine, Fort Sumter National Park, and 20 championship golf courses, and it’s easy to see why Charleston was named the #1 American destination city by both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Travel! Plan your next trip to Charleston today.
