Charleston is no stranger to making top 10 lists of all kinds – best places to visit in the world, best new restaurant in the country, most friendly/attractive people in the U.S., yada yada.

Chances are good that all this publicity may have influenced your decision to visit the Lowcountry and stay in one of our luxury beach house rentals SC, be they Isle of Palms vacation rentals or a Folly Beach house Charleston.

But once you are here staying in a Charleston beach house, what’re the best things to see and do? How do you choose from the myriad of possibilities? And honestly, the possibilities seem to grow exponentially each year.

Well, USA Today has recently come up with lists that pertain to individual cities — in other words, what’s the best to take in and do in each one, as written by a local (in Charleston’s case, Clare Sweeney).

They actually have a staggering number of different 10 Best Lists for Charleston alone.  I’ve never seen so many in one place, and they are surprisingly helpful.

Here’s a link to the main page for Charleston:http://www.10best.com/destinations/south-carolina/charleston/
