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
The Isle of Palms
Sullivan's Island Beach
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
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!
