Travel Tuesday: Charleston, South Carolina

Hey ya'll! I was inspired again by Amanda today to write another Travel Tuesday post. This week, I'm choosing to write about one of my favorite cities in the US, Charleston, SC
(Trip to Charleston with some girlfriends one summer during college)
If you've never been to Charleston, I highly suggest you make it your next travel destination. It's one of the oldest cities in the country, located right along the South Carolina coast. 

It has a beautiful historic downtown lined with brightly colored houses and cobblestone streets.

Downtown has countless great restaurants to enjoy, my favorite is Hyman's Seafood and you could spend the day shopping at both well known stores and quaint boutiques or outdoor markets.
and best of all? The beach is right there!
(aren't my parents so cute?!?)

I love Charleston, it's a big enough city, with classic southern charm, and that small town feel.

My parents lived there for about a year and I was fortunate enough to only live three hours away during college so I've made lots of trips to Charleston. I hope I can retire there one day, a girl can dream right?!

What's your favorite city to visit? What makes it so special?

Such great pictures!! Looks like a great place to visit. I was actually born in SC, but we only lived there for a couple years, so I don't remember it at all.
