Do the Charleston

Charleston is a really cool place. The South Carolina port opened in 1670. Wow, think about that year for a second. That's over a hundred years before our independence.

The waterfront park overlooks that Charleston bay and Fort Sumter where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.

The city has a wonderful vibe with the cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, and antebellum houses. It's fascinating to see these structures that date back to the mid 1700's. The French Quarter just oozes with charm.

We ventured into the city on Ashley River Road that goes by the Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and Drayton Hall. Ashley River Road is a beautiful drive that is canopied by trees for miles.

We stayed outside the city in Givhans Ferry State Park. This is a wonderful campground, the only downside was the lack of cell service. We did have coverage with our Verizon jetpack but not our phones. Small price to pay, The campground is situated on the Edisto River which made for some great boating opportunities.
