Tourist head to Charleston for Labor Day weekend


Charleston has been rated the number one city to visit in the country by Travel and Leisure for 2018.

Many came out to the Holy City this Labor Day weekend to check it out.

Some Lowcountry tourist spent their time shopping downtown on King Street.

Baltimore-residents Clifford Lull and his wife traveled down from Maryland for their holiday weekend.

"We relaxed, we enjoyed the restaurants enjoy King street, walked around a lot," Lull said. "We love King street, the mix between national brands and local is terrific."

Another hot tourist destination in the Lowcountry has been the Isle of Palms.

A few first time visitors like Janay said this was the right time to check out the beach's shoreline.

" We haven't been to a Charleston beach, so we wanted to experience it for the first time, we usually go to Myrtle," she said.

According to the College of Charleston's Office of Tourism, the Charleston area welcomed an estimated 5.4 million visitors in 2016.
