Charleston, South Carolina

Ahh… The craze about Charleston… I get it now. While this wasn’t my first time visiting this city, I went this time with an open mind and a new perspective. Here’s a little history on Charleston and me: I came to Charleston first in 2011 for a small family reunion. 5 out of the 8 people ran the famous Cooper River Bridge run, myself NOT included. It is a 10k that Charleston hosts every year on the first weekend in April. I digress… anyways, even though I have come back each year for the bridge run, this time I ventured to Charleston to escape the North Carolina snowstorm.

My older sister has recently become a Charleston local, which is perfect because I have recently become a travel blogger! Right when my mom, younger sister, and I arrived to Hayes’ (my older sister) King Street condo, I was captivated by the architectural personality the building had to offer. Fun fact: Hayes’ condo was built in 1721, and is also featured on the horse and buggy historical tour. One thing I will say about Charleston, each building on King Street has its own flare but they are all incredible and unique to the town.

We did as locals did all weekend… Ate, ate, and ate some more, drank a little wine, and shopped, of course! If Charleston is on your radar, I highly recommend taking a road trip down to the sophisticated quaint town. It can accommodate a girl’s get away, honeymooners, or reunions! Come one, come all.
