My friend Savannah and I went to Charleston for the day yesterday to enjoy our Spring Break a little, and I remember why I loved it there so much. I lived in Charleston for a few months in 2010, then moved back to Columbia, but it was so fun living in such a vibrant city with so much good food and shopping within walking distance of everything. We didn’t get to go to the beach, which is one thing that I’d really looked forward to, but we were able to go to the Cistern at College of Charleston, the Charleston Market, Forever 21 (which took the place of the giant Saks Fifth Avenue when it closed), and explore King Street. Have any of y’all been to Charleston?
And how pretty is my friend?? you might remember her from our excursion to the river a few months ago.
This is the entrance to the Charleston Market, which was created in 1807. You walk in between the two sets of stairs and vendors sell everything from salt water taffy to fine jewelry, art, and cooking books. You really never know what you’ll find.
Apparently now the market also has restaurant kiosks! Everything smelled and looked delicious!
We stopped by the fountain in front of the Charleston Place Hotel, where people like Oprah and Faith Hill have stayed! Very fancy if you ask me…
