Charleston Bucket List

 What are some of the things you just have to do when you're in Charleston? Here are some of ours:

  • Get on the water.
  • Find the best shrimp and grits in town.
  • It’s a food city, try something different!
  • Run up the steps of the Customs House -- but maybe not right after eating...
  • Go to the beach.
  • Shop (or window shop) on King Street.
  • Walk along the Battery.
  • Visit a historic home like the Calhoun Mansion or the Nathaniel-Russell House
  • Take a ghost tour.
  • Walk the Ravenel Bridge.
  • Visit Dock Street Theatre, the oldest theatre in America.
  • See where it all started at Charles Towne Landing.
  • Find Bill Murray (might be a long shot).
  • Talk to a sweetgrass basket weaver at the City Market.
  • Taste local tea at Charleston Tea Plantation.
  • Learn the Shag (South Carolina’s state dance -- a relative to swing dancing).
  • Have a drink at a rooftop bar and see the city from a different perspective.
  • Enjoy the weather and live our trip to Charleston to the fullest.
