The Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce has launched a new web site to boost tourism and events. The Visit Berkeley County web site hopes to increase overnight stays by showcasing the area's attractions, hotels, eateries, events and activities.
Attractions include plantations, historic churches, gardens and war sites.
Events that attract large crowds include music festivals, food festivals (like the Catfish Festival) and sporting events such as the Family Circle Cup Tennis Tournament.
Berkeley County, along with Dorchester and Charleston Counties, make up the tri-county area surrounding the popular tourist and meeting destination of Charleston, South Carolina.
