Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston, the South Carolina port city founded in 1670, is defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and pastel antebellum houses. Charleston is known for its rich history and well preserved architecture. Charleston is the only city in North America in which tea is grown (which is probably why sweet tea is the unofficial drink of the South). Whether you are looking to relocate or are a current resident, job opportunities in Charleston are abundant.
