Planters Inn Guide to Charleston

Step outside Planters Inn and discover one of America’s most culturally vibrant cities. Rich in living history with cobblestone streets, secret alleyways, exquisitely preserved Antebellum mansions, and stunning plantations, Charleston is colored by more than 340 years of characters and stories—the Lowcountry is steeped in pirate and American patriot legend and lore galore! Best of all, Planters Inn is situated in the very heart and soul of historic Charleston.

Charleston’s history truly exists as a sense of place—a connection to the past—that lives in the hearts of locals, is apparent in regional traditions, graces the facades of homes, punctuates the vernacular and seasons the food. While the Holy City, as it is often called, is indeed a veritable living museum, Charleston is also a bustling epicenter of culture, invigorating outdoor activity, and sumptuous dining.

Standing ovations during Spoleto Festival USA and Gullah handicrafts contribute to a multi-sensory cultural aura. Sprawling organic farms and heirloom recipes give Charleston cuisine its unique flavor. Barrier islands and pristine beaches—more than 90 miles of coastline in total, nature trails, bicycle paths, expert fishing guides, world-renowned golf courses, and mild weather year-round draw visitors outdoors.

Charleston’s historic peninsula is a fabulous example of intelligent urban planning. The early city was laid out on a grid, which resulted in scores of easy-to-navigate perpendicular streets that are very pedestrian friendly. From the Cooper River on the east to the Ashley River on the west, it is very easy to stroll the width of the city.

Experience Charleston’s cosmopolitan sense of style from our Planters Inn point of view.
