The Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (www.charlestoncvb.com) is the best place to start piecing together your trip, whether in person or via their website. Other great resources include the Charleston City Paper (www.charlestoncitypaper.com), a free weekly with events galore, and Charleston magazine(www.charlestonmag.com); check out both publications' online calendars for events. To find out more about Restaurant Week in this foodie city (January and September), look at the Charleston Restaurant Association website (www.charlestonrestaurantassociation.com). And to both browse options for home and garden tours and purchase tickets, head to the gift shops (or websites) of the Charleston Preservation Society (www.preservationsociety.org) and Historic Charleston Foundation (www.historiccharleston.org).
