Historic Charleston, SC

We made a really quick overnight trip to Charleston, and managed to fit in a few sites.

The night we arrived we had dinner on the waterfront at sunset. The low country seafood boil was delicious and the view beautiful. The next morning we had breakfast with another lovely waterfront view. Leaving our hotel we passed a huge egret eating his breakfast of whole live lizard!

Charleston is known for its historic churches and we walked past several on the way to The City Market. After passing through the market, admiring sweet grass baskets, and buying some local treats we continued walking along the cobblestone streets. We passed a few horse-drawn carriages as we continued to the Waterfront Park, overlooking Charleston Harbor, to see the lovely pineapple fountain.

On the way home we drove past cannons and pastel antebellum houses along The Battery, and then over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. This bridge is the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.

Whether short or long, a visit to Charleston never disappoints!
