The City of Charleston has launched a vlog series called SEE 33, which showcases the capital city’s arts, history and people. The name, SEE 33, refers to the city being 33 square miles.
“We live in an amazing city with amazing people who create amazing things. I’m excited to be able to share just a small part of this with you,” Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin said when launching the series in May 2020.
At the end of the series, and when it is safe to do so, the first 33 vlogs will be transformed into a scavenger hunt so that people can explore Charleston and see these places firsthand.
