We spent time yesterday going into the city of Charleston. It is beautiful and as unique as I had pictured.
First, the skyline includes the most beautiful bridge I remembering ever seeing.
Charleston makes a tourist’s life very easy. The Charleston Visitor Center is easy to get to and offers handy parking, even for RVs. From the Visitor Center, you can take a trolley to access many areas of historic Charleston (Fort Sumter, The Charleston Market, the various shopping districts and museums, historical homes).
It is interesting how the city is so organized and yet historic. The area is divided into segments devoted to a certain interest.
There is a “Gallery Row“, an antique district, a fashion district, a design district, and the the eclectic Charleston Market.
It was a beautiful day. In the 70’s and sunny (January!). We walked some, we rode the trolley, we had a fine barbeque meal…and all before The Bearded One ran out of steam! (He is not the best tourist in the world!)
Then we returned to the peace of the beautiful campground on James Island. Charleston is treating us well.
