How long has the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau had a presence in Charleston?
The CACVB was established in 1985.
What do you personally love most about living in Charleston?
Charleston offers a quality of life that usually isn’t found in comparably sized cities. We have abundant cultural and recreational opportunities typically found only in much larger metropolitan areas.
Why is the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau passionate about World Heritage designation for Charleston?
We believe Charleston’s unique blend of European and African influences – reflected in the music, art, architecture and foodways of our region – is very deserving of this designation. From a tourism perspective, designation as a World Heritage site further brands Charleston as a place that is truly worth visiting.
Thank you Dan and the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Board for all of your support!
