Just returned from a hot but fun weekend to Charleston, SC. My first two stops (camera in tow) were two of the most photographed sites in Charleston.
(1) The Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park. Although Southerners like to claim the pineapple as their own unique sign of hospitality, the pineapple actually the international symbol of hospitality.
While the Pineapple Fountain may be favorites with adults, the most popular destination at the park seems to be the fountain that kids are allowed to splash in!
Be sure to walk to the end of the pier where there’s a great view of the 575-ft. foot tall Cooper River Expansion Bridge as well as Patriot’s Point and the USS Yorktown.
(2) RainbowRow. Brightly colored homes dating back to the mid-18th century, located at 83-107 East Bay Street. Take a stroll late afternoon or when the sun is setting. The glow of doorpost lanterns adds an additional charm to the houses.
Be sure to watch for my next post on where to find great food in a casual setting.
And check a story I wrote on Charleston, SC, for Wrightsville Beach Magazine.
