4. Even Ryan Gosling Loves Charleston


Since shooting parts of The Notebook in Charleston, Ry Ry has made frequent visits to the Holy City. When he was spotted in downtown Charleston in Fall 2013, it's said the entire peninsula sank 6 inches* from all the girls rushing to catch a glimpse of him.

5. King Street is a Mini Rodeo Drive

Historic King Street offers the best shopping and finest retail stores in the state. Enjoy luxury shops and trendy boutiques all in one place and then grab a drink afterwards - schmoozin' and boozin' Charleston-style.

9. The F0o0o0o0od

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. #FoodSnob
