The City of Charleston has a long-standing romance with culture and the arts that dates back to its origins.

Throughout the city’s long history, artistic visionaries from all over the world have left their marks on the Holy City. 

From it's picturesque architecture & tasteful restaurants to it's enriching museums and performing arts centers, Charleston is home to a broad, artistic and cultural heritage.

One of the city’s most cherished architectural gems, the Historic Dock Street Theatre, has been entertaining Lowcountry residents and travelers alike since its opening in 1736 and is considered to be the oldest theater in the country. 

As the first building in North America built solely for theatrical performances, the site has faced its fair share of challenges that almost nearly destroyed the building forever.
