Charleston has been on America’s radar as the country’s top city for a few years running. Our beautiful city is packed full of both historic charm and contemporary attractions. This month, we want to share with you a little more about our city and its history. Common nicknames for Charleston include “Chucktown” and “The Holy City”. When the city was originally established in 1670 by the British, it was named Charles Town to honor King Charles II. “Chuck” is a common nickname for Charles, and thus “Chucktown” was born.
