Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Charleston is the official seat of the county of Charleston, and is so far the oldest city in the state of South Carolina, in the United States. Charleston is also the largest city of South Carolina, and it remains the principal city of the statistical area of Charleston-North Charleston-Summerville.
The city was established in 1670and named after King Charles II of England. The ancient Charles town was a major party in the slave trade, the Golden Age of Piracy, as well as in the Revolutionary War.
The ancient life is still significantly featured in Charleston, with its cobblestone-themed streets and horse-drawn carriages. The ever-elegant French Quarter and Battery districts stand out with their ancient pastel antebellum houses, making one of the beautiful things to see in Charleston.
The Charleston Harbor stands prominent, surrounded by the Battery promenade and the graceful Waterfront Garden Park. This area has one of the most famous spots in the history of Charleston - Fort Sumter, across the water, remembered as the spot where the very first shots of the Civil War were heard.
Charleston is located to the southern part of the midpoint of the coastline of South Carolina, on Charleston Harbor, right where the Ashley River, the Cooper River, and the Wando River confluences.
Numerous beaches in Charleston, ancient historical museums, and themed gardens and natural parks offer many recreational and fun outdoor activities. The vibrant food scene features a wide array of both local and international cuisines, as does the active nightlife experienced in the numerous clubs and discos around town.
