Charleston County is a glance at the world through the prism of history. A romantic feeling of a bygone era lingers in the air and it envelops the whole place in an enchanting glamour. Neat blocks of homes, merge into melodious parks and entertainment hubs and give birth to the wonder that is Charleston. In the backdrop, a sublime hint of French architecture looms over like a classy penumbra.
The county seat is the city of Charleston, and it made up of cobblestone streets and antiquated lamps that still glow to beautify the 21st century nights. Other aspects like horse-carriages, old-style bakeries, a huge open-air market, quaint coffee shops and near-extinct bibliopole shops, gives an adorable shade to the vivid cityscape.
A series of pastel antebellum homes and shops line up the shoreline of the county, and it’s quite easy to mistake them for a Mediterranean tourist spot. The charm is further embraced by the presence of a number of hole-in-the-wall restaurants and string of shops and boutiques. These are balanced by elegant restaurants near the citified areas and up to the minute shopping malls like Northwood’s and the Citadel Mall. This area is famous for its Low-Country cooking, which is a mix of American, Caribbean and French cuisine.
Speaking of jobs, Charleston has no dearth of them. The Charleston Digital Corridor is a mini-hub for the booming IT industries and is combined seamlessly with the economic might of other technological and managerial firms. Some notable industries in this region are Blackbaud, SPARC, BoomTown, CSS, and Benefitfocus.
