Charleston

If you haven't visited Charleston, I recommend it. Its all kinds of fun. Much history and beauty. Lots to do:
The beaches--Isle of Palms(has shops and hotels along the boulevard), Sullivan's Island (This beach is more secluded than Isle of Palms. Edgar Allen Poe spent time here) and Folly Beach  where the bro got married.
Shopping--Open air market, Tanger outlet, antique shops, Old Slave mart, art galleries
 Tours--Boat Tours, Historical Tours, Ghost Tours, Mini Bus Tours, Walking Tours, Dolphin Tours, Historical Tours
Fort Sumter--First engagement of the civil war April 12, 1861
Gardens and Magnolia Plantation--http://www.magnoliaplantation.com/video_minutes.html
South Carolina Aquarium--This is on the harbor. The inhabitants come from the five major Southeast Appalachian watersheds.
Rainbow Row--Colorful, historic homes on East Bay Street.
The Waterfront--pictured below.
Hmmm, I realize all I didn't get to see and need to go back.

  5. Congrats on MINDER! I'm always on the watch for high interest YA books for my Library.

    I live not too far from Charleston--just over the state line in Brunswick County, NC. It's a shame that I don't get to Charleston more often. My coastal town is so great, I don't like to leave!

  6. Hey, Catherine,
    I'd love to live along the coast. And you're in a perfect location. I'm more central. Not too far from Charlotte.
    Do you work for the library or an avid supporter?
