Location: Charleston, South Carolina
Well, let’s cross the first travel experience off the list for 2017! After spending three days in Charleston, I can easily say to you that that is plenty of time for you to see the whole city. That being said, I could’ve spent so much more time there! It was a perfect little getaway during the northeast winter, with temps as high as in the 70’s and the sunsets holding off until after 7 p.m.
If you’re headed to Charleston for the first time, I recommend three things: eating as much as possible, walking around and admiring the beautiful and colorful architecture, and indulging in the history of the city with a tour.
Every single meal I ate in Charleston was my favorite…especially all of the biscuits. It’s a lot of southern comfort food, but not so heavy that you feel sick afterwards. Also, the city is thirsty. Drinks flow all day every day, and no one’s complaining. I certainly didn’t.
There were so many beautiful streets and homes filled with warm-weather trees, colorful paint jobs and historic plaques. I could’ve taken pictures for days, but I’m sparing you with just a few of my favorites.
We didn’t do any plantation tours or beach trips – two things I really wanted to include, but we did cover everything directly in the city in our timeframe. Take a look at some of my images (wish I took more!) and below you’ll find more specific travel deets.
