Charleston South Carolina Destinations

Charleston South Carolina destinations on your ‘bucket list’? The choices of destination places for vacation travelers are endless. Most folks have a ‘bucket list’, either written in ink or in their heads. I know that Charleston, South Carolina destinations are on many a list. Let’s talk about why, shall we?

The first time I visited Charleston I had no preconceived notions. My mind was open. What I found walking the narrow neighborhood city streets and waterfront boulevards of Battery Park was delightful. I discovered historic charm with no apologies for some aging patina. The natives move a little slower and sit on their piazzas a little longer. Shop keepers on King Street talk a bit more about Charleston, South Carolina destinations and lifestyle before they talk of their wares for sale. These were just a few observations.

Other reasons why vacationers seek Charleston, South Carolina destinations? Besides the history and the low country food, the expectations lean towards romance. Yes, there are carriage rides and sunset sails if a person wants to ‘pop the question’, but I believe the entire city has an inherent romantic feel. It is everywhere! A simple stroll along ‘Rainbow Row’, an unexpected downpour that washes the soft pastel exteriors of the shops, then a quick duck into a restaurant for one of those tall Charleston signature Sweet Tea cocktails to linger over. Oh yes, and afterwards back to your bed and breakfast for …whatever. That’s romance.

The Ashley and Cannonboro Bed and Breakfast Inns are two Charleston South Carolina destination properties offered as a package. The B&B Team has recently listed these Charleston Bed and Breakfast Inns for sale. They reflect what Charleston South Carolina refined lodging is all about. Both are located in the historic district of the city located less than a block from each other. Built in 1832 and 1853, boom times in Charleston. They feature the upstairs, downstairs twin piazzas found so frequently throughout the district. Outdoor living on the piazzas catch the cool cross breezes from the water. They each feature shaded gardens and fountains. I can just hear the palmetto fronds rustling now!
