Going Down South

I know it has been a while since my last post but I have been on vacation in a far away place that didn’t have WiFi…South Carolina. Ha! I have not been back to visit since we moved out to Washington so it was so much fun to go back and visit with everyone. I spent my first week in the upstate of SC. It’s rolling hills are home to my Alma Mater, Clemson University. It was fun for my husband and I to go back to our old stomping grounds where we met and made so many memories.

After the upstate, I stayed in Columbia for a week before heading down to Charleston. The hot, sticky air combined with the salty breeze and tidal pluff mud from the marsh welcomed me the second I stepped out of the car. Charleston has so much history within its colorful walls. My mom and I had fun exploring different areas of the city.

I had a wonderful month long vacation in South Carolina. It was great to be able to spend time with those I had not seen in over 2 years!!

    • The Charleston area has a ton to offer! King street has a ton of shops and restaurants; lots of fun dining experiences. The Charleston City Market near Meeting street is full of tables with locals selling their crafts. If you go there, I would also make sure to admire the sweet grass baskets that are custom and hand-made. The Battery park is pretty to stroll through. There you can see the ocean tide coming in, as well as Fort Sumter in the distance; I would recommend going on a tour to the Fort as well if you don’t mind boats and enjoy war history (which I do!). Also, just wandering in the streets from Battery Park to the Charleston City Market is a personal favorite of mine. The old, colorful houses are a great reminder of the history that remains. Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island are just a bridge drive away from Charleston and offer some beautiful beaches and maybe even a dolphin siting or two! :)
