I hope you all enjoyed my first post about Charleston in which I shared the best places I ate while visiting. For part two of my Charleston blog posts, I wanted to share my favorite things to see and do in the beautiful city.
One of my favorite things I did in Charleston was the Schooner Pride sunset cruise. I’d read several great reviews about this cruise and knew I had to experience it for myself. The cruise took off at 5:30 pm not far from downtown and ended at exactly 7:30 pm.
There were about 50 people on the sailboat, so it was slightly crowded. If you plan to get drinks (soda, beer and wine), bring cash! I also recommend getting there 15 minutes before the sail begins to snag the best seat.
I was very lucky to stay right off King Street at The Restoration (blog post coming on my stay soon!), so I would walk up and down the street several times throughout the day. As a shopping pro, I loved being so close to so many great shops.
There were so many fun streets to venture off onto as well. I loved stumbling upon this colorful bicycle on Market St.
One of the most iconic spots in Charleston is Rainbow Row. A series of pastel-colored homes (14 to be exact) create a striking street that is both beautiful and extremely photogenic. I took so many photos here my camera almost died!
White Point Garden
The first place I stopped in Charleston was White Point Garden. This park offers stunning ocean-front views and incredible homes that I could stare at all day long!
I loved walking up and down the sidewalks outside White Point Garden.
I even made a dolphin buddy that just hung out by the park for quite awhile.
Exploring historic downtown Charleston was such a blast. It was so fun to learn about the town’s history and to see the old buildings.
St. Philip’s Church was so fun to see too, especially when I found out it leans 3 degrees because of an old earthquake.
So many fun and colorful buildings to see.
I would love to hear about your Charleston experiences. I definitely hope to go back soon and would love to hear if there’s anything I missed! Stay tuned for more fun Charleston posts.
