Charleston was one of the first colonies to ever be settled. The cobblestone streets are worth the trip there! Bumpy! But unique

To see and do Pitt Street Bridge: a beautiful spot to catch sunrise or sunset, the Pitt Street Bridge is a long strip of causeway that runs across the marsh from the Old VIllage toward Sullivans Island, ending just before the Intercoastal Waterway and offering amazing views of Charleston Harbor (especially for that sunset). It’s the perfect place for a stroll, or If you’re a runner, try it as an out-and-back destination. (From here, it’s something in the range of a 30 minute run to the end of Pitt Street Bridge and back.) Alhambra Hall: if you want to see a beautiful sunset without leaving the neighborhood, and you love dogs, try Alhambra. It’s a four minute drive or less than a 20 minute walk. Farmer's Markets: During the spring and summer months both Charleston and Mt Pleasant host a farmer's market. Charleston's takes place on Saturdays at Marion Square and Mt Pleasant's takes place on Tuesday afternoon/early evening at Moultrie Middle School outdoor pavilion (walking distance from here.) The nearby beaches: Sullivans Island is closer (about 2.5 miles); Isle of Palms has bigger waves. Both can have parking challenges on busy summer days, but both are worth it if you’re looking for a wonderful beach day. Please pay attention to what is allowed and not allowed on the signs leading to the beach; we have seen people get ticketed. Folly Beach is located past James Island and is a bit of a drive, but the waves are bigger there if you're interested in surfing, and the laid back beach bars and restaurants are worth checking out. (Good to know: on perfect-weather days during the beach season, expect traffic going to any of these beaches.) Shem Creek Boardwalk: as the name implies, this walk goes right along Shem Creek, and on any given day, you’ll see a variety of local birds and local boaters. Dolphin frequent the creek, too. Go there for a stroll, the sunset, or some exercise, but know that you can always stop for a creekside beverage or meal at any number of spots. Fort Moultrie: history is everywhere when you are in the Charleston area, and Fort Moultrie, located on Sullivans Island, is the place to go if you’re interested in coastal and maritime history going back to the Revolutionary War (which is the reason South Carolina became the Palmetto State). Patriot’s Point: military history from a naval and maritime perspective. Tour the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier, the USS Laffey Destroyer, the USS Clamagore Submarine, the Vietnam Experience exhibit, and soon The Medal of Honor Museum. Fort Sumter: famous and infamous for its role in the Civil War. One of the best parts about visiting Fort Sumter is that you get to take a boat ride in the harbor to get there. The tours start both from Patriot’s Point marina and from downtown at the Fort Sumter National Monument Visitors Center and Ferry Slip. (The Visitors Center is next to The South Carolina Aquarium.) The South Carolina Aquarium: the name speaks for itself. In addition to the aquarium experience, you can enjoy a section of Harbor Walk along the mouth of the Cooper River. (The aquarium is right next to the Fort Sumter Visitors Center.) The International African American Museum: located on the site where almost half of all African captives arrived in the U.S. – Gadsden’s Wharf – the museum is set to open in the Fall of 2022. It will explore the cultures and diverse journeys and achievements of Africans forcibly brought to America as well as tell the stories of their descendants in South Carolina. The museum will also feature a Gullah Geechee exhibition gallery. The Cooper River Bridge: if you’re looking for some exercise and the highest view around, this is it. You’ll find plenty of parking under the bridge at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, just a couple of miles from here. (The park also has a long pier and is a nice picnic spot.) A wide sidewalk leads to the pedestrian lane that goes up the bridge. It’s about five miles over and back, but unless you’re really trying to get your exercise, just walk to the top of the span and enjoy the incredible views at the lookout area. (Be aware that there is a pedestrian lane and a bike lane, so check behind you before stepping across the yellow line, especially on the way down. Bicycle-versus-pedestrian collisions have happened.) Awendaw Green: if you happen to be in town on a Wednesday night and you’re a music lover, consider taking a little drive out to the country for a barn jam music celebration under the stars. Many local acts play here, as do traveling bands as they arrive in town to play weekend shows at other venues. Check out the Awendaw Green website to learn more about the music and the location, and if you go, know that you’ll experience a true local favorite. As their home page says, it’s “a laid-back venue in a laid-back town.” Downtown Charleston: there’s just too much to love about Downtown, so you’ll have to settle in and do some research, talk to us in person, or just go there and start walking. North of Broad Street are enough shops, restaurants, and streets to keep you busy for days. You’ll find yourself walking past and through historical churches, cemeteries, parks, and the oldest college in South Carolina, the College of Charleston (which is also the oldest municipal college in the U.S.) If you’re into history and architecture, you won’t find any better location than South of Broad. We suggest a long meandering walk, or consider renting beach cruisers to cover more ground, but settle in and go slow. Small alleys and residential gardens are easy to miss. When the day winds down, you might want to see a play at the historic Dock Street Theatre or catch a concert at the intimate Charleston City Music Hall. That’s just scratching the surface, so go ahead and plan your return trip!

Elegant, charming and enchanting. These are just a few words used to describe Charleston, South Carolina. Notably one of the best-preserved and most picturesque cities in America’s Old South. Simply put, the city oozes with Southern hospitality.

Charleston is just a short drive from Folly Beach. The historic city is full of museums, restaurants, art galleries, night clubs, parks, and the list goes on and on.
