Top 10 loves of Charleston
10) Farmer’s Market, Marion Square-
Anything and everything you wanted to buy (local of course) + you can get great food- shrimp and grits, crapes, breads, etc.
Saturdays in April-December
9) Walking the Battery
Stroll by the ocean and houses at least 2 centuries old. History + beauty!
Also a great place to walk arm in arm with a date/SO/etc
8) Bowen’s Island
Oysters, fresh seafood- eating from paper plates while you watch their employees gathering oysters from the creek. Enough said.
7) Medical University of South Carolina
Can’t forget my place of employment (or my dad’s…or my husband’s)
6) French Quarter Art Walk
A few select Fridays during the year, free wine and snacks while strolling down the city streets and ducking into fabulous galleries.
Plus, I got engaged at the French Quarter Art Walk in Oct 2007. Ahhh memories.
5) Calhoun Mansion
I worked here in 2002, gave tours and swear I saw a ghost.
4) Happy hour at Pearlz West Ashley
Where else can you get a dozen oysters for $7, a glass of champagne for $3, and a spicy tuna roll for $6. I am there at least once a week!
3) Folly Beach
The Edge of America. The Hippy “town” where you can surf, drink on the beach, and grab some great food after you work on your tan.
2) The shopping on King Street
Luna, Copper Penny, BCBG, Nine West, Express, William Sonoma, Steve Madden.
The list goes on and on…
1) The Charleston Harbor by Boat
Beautiful open waters, historic forts within view, and seeing the city from the water….there are just no words. Bottles of wine and beer are always welcome!
