10 Reasons Why Charleston, SC Is The Place To Be
McKenna Hickman

harleston, South Carolina has repeatedly been named one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. It draws visitors from all parts of the world with its food, beaches, and kind people. It is the gem of the South that's for sure! It is a great place for a tourist day, vacation, or even to somewhere to consider moving to. I love every second I spend in this city. Here is while Charleston will never disappoint...

1. The Beach

Folly Beach

The Isle of Palms

Sullivan's Island Beach

These are three amazing beaches that you can choose to go to. You really can't go wrong with any of them, so you might as well just switch among all three and repeat.

2. The Battery

The perfect walking spot on a sunny day and the best spot to really embrace Charleston's history.

3. Coffee shops galore

From Collective in Mount Pleasant to Black Tap Coffee downtown, you never really can go wrong with coffee here. They all have great environments to talk with friends, study, or even maybe go on a date.

4. The food & seafood if that is your thing.

There are so many restaurants to choose from that also have a ton of diversity. Along with just the simple fact that there is incredible food since you're in a beach city you get the added bonus of seafood!

5. Downtown Charleston

You can eat, shop, get some ice cream, and drink a coffee all in the same place. A day downtown can never disappoint

6. The Weather

It seems to always be warm in Charleston. I mean hey, right now it is the middle of January and it's 75 degrees most days.

7. Photography Opportunities

Do you like to take pictures? Then Charleston is definitely for you! There is water, beautiful trees, abandoned buildings, and historical everything. Bring your friends and get some great shots!

8. History, History, History

You can visit Fort Sumter and swing by to see the H.L Hunley. I mean even just take a walk, carriage ride, or maybe even go on a ghost tour at night while downtown. Anywhere you go you are breathing in the history.

9. Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge

No one could ever get tired of driving over this beautiful bridge and looking out over the city and seeing the water. You can even walk it, run it, or bike it!

10. The Market

Also another great place to be at downtown where you can buy tons of local goods from jewelry to t-shirts to hand woven baskets. You will never be disappointed with what you leave here with.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

Rich Schultz/Getty Images

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
