Every Mercury reader knows the story of The Old Man and the Sea. A fortunate few of
us got to know him, and his story is no fish tale. Harry Locke Johnson, Jr., known affectionately
by generations of locals as Captain Harry, was born in Charleston in 1929.

I am so excited to spotlight one of my favorite restaurants in Summerville....DRUMROLL.....Sunrise Bistro, which is located at 110 Miles Jamison Rd.  This hidden gem is a MUST VISIT!  They are a breakfast/lunch restaurant with great prices and a lip smackin’ menu selection.  The hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 7am to 2pm and Sunday, 9am to 2 pm (843) 225-6201. 

The Dominican Republic is undoubtedly one of the most amazing travel destinations and is packed with tourists throughout the year. The country welcomes you with golden sand beaches and pristine aqua blue water. There are several activities that you can enjoy in the Caribbean from relaxing on the beach, hiking the most spectacular cliffs to experiencing the amazing marine life. The best place to enjoy and marvel at the exotic and breathtakingly beautiful marine life is at the Silver Bank. This lies in the Northside of the Dominican Republic and is submerged in the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The Silver Bank has been declared as the “Sanctuary of The Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic.” So, get ready to have an experience of a lifetime. 

Who doesn’t love to look at the beautiful blooms of the Azalea? These flowers are also known as the “Royals of the Garden” due to their notoriously vibrant colors! In Charleston, South Carolina, you can see these flowers blooming all across our city from late March until early May. We have all sorts of azaleas growing all over, including (but not limited to) the Piedmont Azalea, the Japanese Azalea, the George L. Tabor Azalea, and the Great Laurel!  We are so proud to have these gorgeous flowers growing in our city.

At first glance, Charleston, SC, might look like a quaint, tame little city. And, during the day – it very much is. Gorgeous cobblestone streets adorned by historic landmarks allow for an enjoyable stroll through history. Quiet neighborhoods and friendly residents make it a picture-perfect place for families. Yet, once the rays of sunshine give way to neon lights, the city drastically changes. Dim lights let it reveal a whole new face - the one inviting thrillseekers with a promise of fun, excitement, and good times. But this is more than just a blank invitation. The Holy City delivers with a myriad of pubs, nightclubs, craft beer bars, and fancy restaurants. Therefore, all you need to know about Charleston nightlife - it is what you want it to be. 

Charleston has so many amazing attractions and things to do that it can be difficult to choose the best tour companies and attractions. As we all know, touring can be expensive and making all of these decisions can be stressful...which is why we recommend getting a TourPass.
