Historically, Charleston has a impressive cultural heritage. One of the best ways to learn about its colorful past and the part it played in the civil war is to take a carriage ride through the city.
Stroll the gracious, residential streets of Church and Lagare, taking time to wander through the ancient cemeteries along the way.
Gallery hopping on Broad Street is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon and you may even have a private concert like we did at the Mary Martin Gallery. After that, walk down King Street for some antique shopping.
Taste some traditional low country fare like Shrimp and Grits, or in this case, Ahi Tuna and Grits at Magnolias. Fabulous food is plentiful in Charleston, a mecca for some of the top chefs in the country.
End your evening with The Sound of Charlston, a musical review with gospel, Gershwin, jazz and Civil War songs, a treat with local musicians.
Charleston embodies charm, warmth and charisma and the combination of its beauty and culture keeps this city a top destination, and keeps me coming back!
