Charleston has been on my mind for many years. Its interesting mix of French influence, historic architecture and riverfront charm hits all the buttons of what makes a town charming for me.
It’s the oldest city in South Carolina with roots that stretch way back to 1670 and its history is most wonderfully preserved. Cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and stunning mansions from the mid 1700’s permeate the core. Hip restaurants, water-front dining and a vibrant nightlife add layers on top. Then there are the darker periods of history, slavery and the beginning of the Civil War (Fort Sumter) which add weight to the experience. You feel the mix most poignantly, yet amongst it all you can’t help but be swept away by that romantic southern charm and hospitality.
For RVers there’s a perfectly-placed and thoroughly awesome County Park just ~7 miles from downtown. It’s $$$, but it’s also one of the nicest county parks we’ve ever stayed at. What’s even better is that we were planning to meet-up with good friends here.
