Just over 25 miles from the Holy City sits historic Summerville. And while Summerville is known as “The Birthplace of Sweet Tea” there are many reasons to visit this charming Charleston suburb. Besides the sugary sweet tea and rich history, the town of Summerville offers some great spots to grab drinks and a bite to eat at.
We know exploring a new area can be a bit daunting so we’re choosing our favorites for you to try.
