Charleston blew us away! I had high expectations for it, which oftentimes can make a place a bit of a let down. That wasn’t the case with Charleston. It was definitely different than I had pictured, but even more amazing & unique. We walked around just in awe of the bright, beautiful, charming homes, historic churches, greenery, and feel. In the South of Broad neighborhood we stopped at almost every home to take in details. It was so interesting to see how so many of the massive homes are faced sideways which makes you feel like you’re right back in the way things used to be in early Charleston. It’s another world and pulled us right in!
South of Broad neighborhood– The highlight area for us, sitting at the edge of the peninsula. It is filled with beautiful historic residential homes and gardens. You will get lost in the fairytale of Charleston’s unique features…I could have wandered here for hours!
