Charleston is a place we all love to visit, would love to visit, or are enjoying visiting. (Lucky you, if you’re in this last category.) Its so full of attractions, restaurants, shopping, and history that you could stay a week and still have things to do. But wherever you’re going and whatever you’re going to do, the first place to go is the Visitor’s Center.

Behind these doors lie the secrets of Charleston— and a lot of brochures.

If you haven’t been to the Visitor’s Center at 375 Meeting Street, you literally don’t know what you’re missing. This is the place to find out about Charleston’s attractions, restaurants, shopping, and history. It’s one of four visitor’s centers the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau operates, so click here to find out about the other three.

This is a great 3D sound display they had when I visited. It’s only one reason why the Charleston Visitor’s Center is the first place you should visit.

Even though this is the first place you should stop in Charleston, it probably is also the last place you should stop. Once you’ve spent time in Charleston you’ll have special memories. The gift shop is a perfect place to find souvenirs that will help you remember that time. These items also make awesome Christmas or birthday presents.
