On a recent family trip to one of the most beautiful historic cities in America, I discovered an ecosystem teaming with life and a redfish bite rivaled only by Louisiana. What makes Charleston such a fantastic fishing destination is that has such a great variety of offerings both on and off the water. In fact, if you took fishing out of the equation it is still a great vacation destination. Like Louisiana, South Carolina’s Lowcountry cooking helps define its personality, and also serves as a historical record of the way things used to be. In addition to a number of great restaurants, this historic coastal city has a great variety of accommodations, shopping, golf courses and museums. While the Redfish bite may always be on in Louisiana, Charleston has it beat when it comes to vacation options and amenities.
