Patricia Skeriotis Presents : Vacation! – Part 5 (Charleston)

Charleston, South Carolina!

This low-key, south eastern beach town is the perfect escape for someone who craves a little peace and some Southern hospitality.

Charleston

This charming city is very in touch with her historical roots. As you walk down the cobbled streets lined with gas lamps and breathe in the salty sea air, you’ll fall in love with Charleston.

In addition to staying in touch with her roots, the “Holy City” allows its branches to sway in the winds of change, like the Spanish moss hanging from her trees. Charleston has plenty of innovative cuisine and contemporary art museums.

Maybe take a tour around in a horse-drawn carriage to admire the antebellum architecture surrounding you before you take a relaxing day at the beach.

For the history buff in you, the first shots of the Civil War were fired in Fort Sumter. You can still take a tour of the historical military fort today, perhaps on your way to one of the supposedly haunted cemeteries in town.

Charleston can lull you with it’s warm southern air and sweet ice tea or chill you with its spooky history, but you’re sure to find something charming about the city.
