My wife and I are not really beach people and we sort of got bored with Myrtle Beach so we ventured to see other parts of South Carolina. On my last blog posting, I shared our adventures on the ocean to see dolphins in the wild and a shrimp boat. The following day we ventured down to Charleston, Carolina.
Charleston was a short two hour drive south from Myrtle Beach. We really did not have much of an agenda other than to check out the city. The city is rich in history and I know we could have easily spent more than one day exploring the city but we only spent one day in the city. The homes were beautiful and well kept. We browsed the Charleston City Market, walked a good part of the city checking out the homes and ended our adventures with a carriage ride through the city. If you want to take a carriage ride of the city, I would highly recommend the Palmetto Carriage Works. They were very professional and the driver was very knowledgeable about the city and the history.
After the carriage ride we started our journey back north towards Myrtle Beach, but before doing so we made a side trip to see a light house, because how do you go to the coast without seeing any lighthouses and who does not like to see one.
Below are some photos from our adventures around Charleston, South Carolina.
