查尔斯顿始建于1670年,到1800年,成为当时仅次于费城、纽约、波士顿、魁北克的北美第5大城市。

It dates back to 1670, when it was settled by English colonists and named Charles Town after King Charles II of England. By the 18th century, Charleston had become one of the main colonial ports in the South, dealing in rice, cotton, and indigo.

查尔斯顿整个市区共有三千多幢历史建筑,大部分是内战之前所建,堪称国家历史地标。

The historic architecture pre-dates the Civil War. According to the tourism board, the city was short on capital after the war, which meant it had to repair damaged buildings rather than replace them. This meant that many of the buildings were left intact.

如今主要的旅游区集中在其市中心的历史街区,那里酒吧、餐馆、商店等云集。

Today the main tourist area is focused in its downtown historic district, which has plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops. Tourists can take horse-and-carriage rides around this area to see some of the more spectacular houses.
