Well, there’s no doubt about it—even without the College, the beautiful scenery and rich history, Charleston would be worth visiting just to eat there. Students enjoy the overwhelming abundance of restaurants in this relatively small city and are happy that they can find several of them close to campus. There are many great places to dine on signature Southern cuisine or great Charleston seafood, like Fleet Landing, where students can eat their meals while enjoying a great view of the harbor. Upper King Street is an area popular among students for any occasion and is definitely an area recommended for taking your friends when they visit. Parents might enjoy the historic charm of the Market and East Bay Street, where the more expensive restaurants can be found.
With all of the seafood and exclusive dining options, one might think that restaurants in Charleston are expensive or formal, but this is not the case. Students and tourists alike will find that the reasonably low prices of Charleston’s restaurants are perhaps one of the most attractive features. If you want expensive cuisine for a special occasion, Charleston has plenty of options, but if you feel in the mood for an informal, casual evening out, you will find many restaurants providing that atmosphere, too. The hospitality and tradition of Charleston will no doubt only make your dining experience very memorable.
