Charleston Streets

I wanted to post a couple random pictures to give you an idea of what the streets of historic Charleston look like - for you touristy people.

Here's me and my SO in front of one of popular fountains in Charleston (great for kids). It's right near a pier that has swinging benches, that are pretty romantic, and also beside the battery, which is sorta like a mini-park. There are several historic markers with stories for the history buff.

I couldn't resist grabbing a shot of this cute restaurant. It's one of the nicer ones in town, right off E. Bay St. and across from High Cotton, which I mentioned in my previous post. Notice the sidewalks - yep, they're hard to walk on for ladies in heels, so bring appropriate shoes! Anywho, that's about it really....I mean, Charleston is kinda what you make of it. Check out the great restaurants and bars. For tours, I recommend the tour of Fort Sumter - you get a boat ride with it and a great view of the city! Maybe try one of the horse-driven carriage tours - those are fun too. There's also ghost tours for the non-faint-of-heart. The Market is really where most of the action happens, so just head that way, and you're sure to find something to do!
