South Carolina is an extremely beautiful state. It’s literally shaped like a diamond. I recently went to the city of Charleston and spent some time there and came up with a list of things to do when you visit the historic city yourself!
- Take a Walking Tour This is one way to learn about the history of Charleston. You can take the tour on foot with a guide who will show you along the streets of the city. There are also carriage tours as well.
- Stick your feet in one of the fountains. On a hot and humid day in Charleston, you’ll want to cool off in one of the fountains near the shore. I dipped my feet into this pineapple one, and it felt extremely refreshing
- Go walking at night While you can see a ton of cool things during the day, the city gives a different experience when the sun goes down.
- Stop at the Market The market holds so many local vendors and it’s really fun to see how creative people can be!
- Visit the Hunley An old submarine was found right off the coast of Charleston, and you can visit it and take a tour to see it
- See Rainbow Row It’s kind of a landmark, and you have to do it!
- Grab some ice. There are shaved ice carts all around the city, I believe they’re all students raising money for college (which is actually located in Charleston itself!)
- Visit Plantations There is an entire street loaded with plantations that guests can tour. Though I didn’t go on this trip, they look amazing and I would love to the next time I’m around!
- Eat at Jestine’s and Hyman’s. I can’t mention one and not say the other, as they’re both my favorite spots to eat in the city!
- Visit the Churches. It’s not called the ‘Holy City’ for nothing! Charleston is decorated with amazing architecture and the churches are so pretty.
You can find a ton of information just by googling some of these spots! I loved spending time in Charleston, and while I may have been there a few days too long, I would still go back!
Have you ever visited a holiday place more than once? Where do you always go? Where would you love to return to?
