The Complete Charleston City Guide

What If We - Bridge - Sept 16

With Charleston’s charming cobblestone streets, magnolia trees, fried food delicacies, and southern hospitality, are you at all surprised that it’s been voted #2 best city in the world by Travel and Leisure? Take it from me, a Charleston native, to tell you it’s true.

I’ve spent 17 years of my life calling Charleston home and, quite frankly, I am happy to have grown up there. The field trips to Fort Sumter, visits to the aquarium, and beating the summer’s heat with getaways to Isle of Palms made my childhood experiences very memorable.

Because of my love for this city, I’ve collected a numbers of places worth visiting if you ever find yourself in the Holy City. Restaurants, attractions, gyms-they are all here, to make your vacation in Charleston the best trip yet.

In an effort to start reading more, I downloaded the Kindle app on my phone a few months ago with a goal to knock out at least one book a month and continue with my RNR series here on the blog where I review a book each month. If you remember from May, I reviewed by friend Zoey’s book, Beauty in the Breakdown. If you haven’t already, go check it out now. It’s a good one.

One of the most recent books I finished is Vagabonding by Rolf Potts. I originally found out about this book through the Tim Ferriss Podcast, in which Rolf was being interviewed and was discussing the art of long term world travel. At the time I heard the episode, I was getting ready to make the move overseas but hadn’t gotten around to reading the book until now.
