12 hours in Charleston

We recently spent few days in Myrtle Beach, SC. We decided to take a day trip to Charleston. Charleston is very very beautiful. The words do no do justice to how cute this city is. People there are some of the friendliest people that I've ever met. Despite few rain showers, we had fantastic time. The city known for its rich history and spectacular architecture. We spent the day taking in the scenery and dreaming about what it would be like to live in one of the gorgeous french style homes. We also had amazing food. Only thing we regret is not spending more time there!

Charleston City Market is a must stop if you are in the city. When you enter the market it looks small and then you realize the market actually spans 4 city blocks! If you're looking for souvenirs, this is the place to go. You'll meet friendly people and eat good food too! If you're looking for something unique then I recommend Gullah sweetgrass baskets. We were lucky enough to chat with the talented artists and learn more about the history.  

 The weather for perfect for a walk in the waterfront park. 

After all the walking we decided to eat at Magnolias. Our server was so friendly. Since I'm vegetarian, we asked our server for some suggestions. He told us he'll be right back. Next thing we know the chef is making me off the menu dish!! Who does that during busy time?? Food was out of this world. I still don't how we walked out of there. I highly recommend Magnolia. Try their sweet tea and please save room for dessert because trust me you don't want to miss that.

Before heading back to Myrtle Beach, we decided to stop by the Angel Oak Tree on John's Island. Due to rain storms through out the day, the road to this park was muddy which made us bit uneasy driving. But, we managed to get there and boy were we glad. Sadly the park closed at 5pm so we were not allowed to go in but what we saw from outside was simply breath taking. This tree is over 500 years old! And it was simply beautiful.

 I was bit sad to leave this charming city. I know we'll be back here for sure!
