Historic Downtown

Charleston, SC. has become a world-famous destination exemplifying old-world southern charm, beauty, and hospitality winning awards for her charms every year!

Throughout its history, the Historic Downtown District in Charleston has been the cultural capital of the South and is a living museum. In this beautifully preserved city, you can experience tours through historic landmarks, including 18th-century homes and plantations, the Battery, museums, churches, and the city market. There are historic sites on every street corner, usually next door to an art gallery or cultural venue due to the city’s impressive appreciation for all of the arts. Two internationally renowned festivals, Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto are held in May and June bringing thousands of visitors. In addition, our Wine & Food Festival, Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and Fashion Week draw people from everywhere. Charleston also offers world-class dining experiences at its dozens of restaurants downtown. You will find there are many historic Charleston accommodations from which to choose when planning your visit.

Some of the best ways to see our beautiful city are by taking a Charleston historic tour by long walks peeking into the beautiful courtyards beside the historic homes, visiting the many exquisite churches and museums, and browsing the many unique shops and franchise stores along King Street, named “One of the Top Ten Shopping Districts in the US.” The alternative to walking is a carriage ride with a knowledgable guide.

Escape to the Beach, to the Islands

Charleston’s barrier islands are numerous and beautiful with their wide beaches. The Isle of Palms is less than 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. Folly Beach is located about 15 miles south of Charleston and is known as Charleston’s truly original beach playground. These areas hold primarily private homes, but many may be rented if you prefer to recover by the ocean. The resorts of Seabrook and Kiawah are visited by golfers and vacationers from around the world. Located just 22 miles south of Charleston, these islands are private and owned by their residents; however, there are villa and condo rentals available. Kiawah Island was selected as the 2014 Travel & Leisure’s “Top Island, Continental US”.

A tour boat will take you to Fort Sumter in the harbor, the site of the first shots of the Civil War.


  • "The things I appreciated most: I considered this for 5 years and discussed with Dr. Hochman on several occasions. I never felt any pressure or was subjected to any 'sales pitch'. It was always emphasized that it should be my decision and one with which I would be comfortable. The friendliness of the staff. Every single person I have met in the office has been exceedingly friendly. The emphasis on the availability of Dr. Hochman after the procedures. The timely and thorough communications." - WT
  • "Dr. Hochman, Kim, and the entire staff have saved my life. I've never had a doctor so genuinely interested in my health and wellbeing. My migraines rule my life, but because of Dr. Hochman's treatments, I am able to have a measure of freedom again. I cannot recommend him enough for migraine treatment. He is compassionate, caring, professional and, frankly, family at this point."
  • "Dr. Hochman and his staff have been caring for our daughter and treating her Port Wine Stains for over 10 years now! He is a world renowned Dr and in high demand, but the brat part is he LOVES our child and that makes him the best! We consider Dr Hochman and his staff one of our greatest blessing and thank God for them!"
  • "To be honest, I couldn’t have had a better experience. From start to finish, Dr Hochman and his wonderful staff took the BEST care of me. I had a VERY large basal cell area removed from the side of my nose and cheek. They referred me to a wonderful dermatologist who got me in right away. After the Mohs procedure, Dr Hochman did my repair three days later, right in his own office with a fabulous anesthesiologist and super nurse. And now, twelve weeks later, you can hardly tell anything was done. Beautiful job!" -
  • "We absolutely LOVE Dr. Hochman! Our 16 month old had a large hemangioma removed from his forehead and you can’t even tell it was ever there! He did such a great job there isn’t even a visible scar. He is honest, to the point and was beyond helpful after hours when we needed him. We are beyond happy we found him!" -Laurie
  • "Wish I had done my homework [searching for doctors]. Thanks to Dr. Hochman for fixing another’s [doctor’s] mistakes." -Terrie
  • "If every doctor and staff strives to be as caring and generous as you, the world would be filled with more smiles and laughter. You and your team took care of us as if we were the most important people on earth. We appreciate and value your outstanding expertise and care. Surgery, even elective, is scary. We would like to thank you for making this such an amazing experience." -MW & WB
