A Perfect 2 Day Guide To Charleston
Get to know Charleston by walking around town, along the Battery and out to White Point Garden - lots of beautiful houses along the way
Make sure to see the pineapple fountain on your walk. It’s along the waterfront
Rainbow Row is a pretty collection of pastel houses and great for a photo stop
Just outside of the main city, Martha Lou’s served up the most authentic and delicious southern home cooking. A car or Uber are probably needed
Break up your city visit with a trip to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The grounds are filled with mossy trees
You can buy separate tickets to see different parts of the property. One of the areas is the swamp - home to alligators!
Factor in a full day to see all or many of the areas on the property. Or half a day if you want to just see the garden and one other area
Charleston is such a historic city that it only felt right to get on a horse and carriage ride to see the city
Carriage rides run for about an hour and are a fun and informative way to learn about the city
The Historic Charleston Slave Market is an important and moving museum. Highly recommend to get an overview of Charleston’s history in the slave trade
You can take your pick of historic houses to visit. I visited the Nathaniel Russell for a glimpse into the past
The Historic Charleston City Market is a great place for some food and any souvenir buying. Art, jewellery, woven baskets, food and trinkets galore!
For you lovers of The Notebook - Cypress Gardens is where they filmed the boat/swan scene. You can rent a boat and paddle around the swamp
Hope you enjoy Charleston as much as I did!
