We used to call the great state of South Carolina home. It should be no surprise that we absolutely fell in love with the city of Charleston. We made frequent visits to the city, even if for the day or weekend. However, each visit made us fall deeper and deeper for this great city on the beach!
This page is a compilation of different trips, highlighting some of our favorite spots in the city. I emphasize city because we’ve never made it out of the city to the plantations … which is just my sneaky way of making sure we return!
The miles of white sand beaches are a huge draw for all visitors.
The USS Yorktown is also in the Charleston Harbor and can be explored for a small fee.
Use the trolley if you’re in a rush or your feet hurt … it’s safe, quick and easy.
Rainbow Row is a must-see. Who doesn’t like to gawk and dream?
The Battery is very close to Rainbow Row and is a scenic park on one of the many waterways surrounding Charleston.
The marshland, or “low country” is a different beauty. One can take a boat cruise tour or drive a short distance to local parks and walk down paths, picnic and even fish near the water to enjoy the views.
Walking down cobblestone street and ducking into church sanctuaries can keep you busy for hours too! Although I have no pictures, I want to mention that we highly recommend Hanks Seafood Restaurant for seafood (duh!), The Rooftop Bar at the Vendue Inn for lunch and/or evening drinks/entertainment, Kaminsky’s for dessert and Vickery’s for lunch on the water and fried green tomatoes.
I’ve visited Charleston with just Michael, with girlfriends and with co-workers. Each time is fun and we discover something new. Who knows! Maybe we’ll get to go back soon to see plantations and the Angel Oak Tree!
