Recently recognized for its 2018/19 edition of Connoisseur with an Award of Excellence by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (AIVA) for its 25th Annual Communicator Awards, this attractive three-volume suite utilizes dramatic photography, design-forward layouts and thoughtfully curated content that is both engaging and entertaining to celebrate this enchanting part of the country. All of these elements combine to highlight the best features of each of the publications’ seven sections: Lowcountry Scenes, Historic Pathways, Local Destinations, Pleasure Gardens, Artistic Essence, City of Flavors and Room to Roam.

The newly introduced Local Destinations section is aimed directly at the Charleston visitor that has been to the city multiple times and is eager to explore its surroundings, and Room to Roam has expanded to invite readers — and Lowcountry fans — to consider extending their stay…indefinitely.

“It’s inspiring to work in an industry where the challenge is to find out what is new, different and exciting about a destination as widely celebrated as Charleston,” says Marisa Beazel, President & Publisher of HCP Media. “Our team takes on the task with a genuine sense of discovery and feels honored to be among the first to know about Charleston’s most promising movements and exciting trends.”

The awe-striking photography that graces each page, complementing articles about shopping, dining, outdoor activities, historic sites and the region’s innovative talents reflects the exuberant energy that makes this part of the country so captivating. Whether covering stately architecture, dynamic arts scenes, exciting shopping destinations or revered dining establishments, these annual destination guides propose a sensory feast outdone only by what Charleston and its surroundings can offer.

Fittingly, the arrival of this suite of publications is being officially kicked off with a new issue release party at the modern American restaurant Tradd’s in downtown Charleston, which specializes in seasonal menus and inspired updates of Lowcountry classics in an elegant space.
