Sports fans rejoice. In Charleston, you can take advantage of the region's many sports teams. There is minor league baseball at the "Joe" on the banks of the Ashley River, professional soccer at Blackbaud Stadium--the first privately funded soccer stadium in the United States--professional tennis at the Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island and professional hockey at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Charleston's built environment has developed with careful consideration for our fragile coastal environment.
