What Bert Has To Say About Charleston-North Charleston Metro Area

Charleston is a unique 300-year-old city with a fascinating historic tradition as an 18th-century seaport and business center and location of the initial moments of the Civil War. History has left its imprint, particularly on the city center, where a large and beautifully preserved mainly residential historic district is popular with local residents and tourists, and has become more popular with wealthy “refugees” from northeastern cities. Today there is some small industry, but major industries and the old seaport are gone. The area is supported by tourism and is known as a good place for small business.
