Charleston Region

Charleston is an Old South city with irresistible charm and beauty. You see it in the lazy trim of her breezy piazzas and feel it in the spirit of her rich heritage. Steeped in history, yet boasting a sophisticated quality of life, Charleston is a place filmmakers rarely want to leave. The city boasts 73 pre-Revolutionary buildings, 136 late-18th century structures and over 600 others built before the 1840s.

Idyllic beaches and resorts at Folly Beach, Kiawah Island, Seabrook, Wild Dunes and Edisto Island offer miles of unspoiled beaches and marshlands, posh accommodations, outstanding recreation facilities and fine dining, making it one of the premiere production destinations in the country.
