The Healthy Side of Charleston

Forget fried food; follow our guide for a wholesome and active visit to this culinary destination.

While no excuse is needed to visit the charming city of Charleston, famous for its old-world elegance and palmetto lined streets, one of the best times to experience this Southern hub is during the annual Wine & Food Festival, which kicks off today. The four day event highlights the very best of the city’s cuisine as well as its chefs, many of whom are James Beard Award winners and the masterminds behind Lowcountry fare that is light, fresh, and organic. Here, our virtual stroll to some of the best spots in town to dine, work up a sweat, and more.
