Food- what type?
-Sulivan's on Sulivan's Island
-Giligan's- Main Rd. off Hwy 17 south- John's Island.
There are a bunch of seafood eateries on the water, but most aren't as good as above. View is better.
Really fancey- Roberts- Long reservation list wait. Chef sings opera while you eat.
Good prime rib- California Dreaming. Overlooking the harbor. Wonderful view. GReat salad!!!
- SE Style- Bessingers, Hwy 17 just S. of town
- Memphis style- Sticky Fingers- Hwy 17 N. in Mnt Pleasent, Downtown on Meeting st. & Next to Northwoods Mall in N. Charleston. Really good dry and wet rub Q.
Magnolias is good and so is Justines. Agree with David that Lady & Sons in Savannah is really good- get there early- Long lines, but great southern food. Cheese biscuits to die for. 1.5 hr south of Charleston.
Aquarium is nice
Enjoy the Yorktown carrier
Hunley sub- very historic
Middleton Gardens- historic southern plantation
Draton hall- same- not as nice a garden.
Lots of great old 200 yr houses downtown. Russell House is impressive. Churches pre- Civil War. The school I went to had classes in pre- Civil War buildings.
If you do a walking tour of downtown, be sure to be nosey and look through the iron gates into the side/back yard gardens. really wonderfull.
Some wonderfull 200yr old churches all over downtown.
Try to get into see #2 Meeting st. Absolute beautiful antebellum house. It sits next to the Battery where the Civil War started. The stained glass windows are real Tiffeny!!! Given to the bride and groom who parents gave them the house as a wedding present!!!!!
Hills= Bridges over harbor
Curves = exit ramps.
Temp- today 95+
Beaches= Folly, Sullivans Island, Isle of Palms.
Golf coarses-= Municiple, Patriots Point (next to Yorktown Carrier and on harbor), Wild Dunes (primo), Seabrook and Kiawa. Wild Dunes is considered a Primo course. Built into sand dunes over looking the Atlantic Ocean.
None of the bike shops are worth the gas to get to them. Local BMW shop does have a K1200GT(new one), but they are typically not friendly. Used to have signs that said not to sit on bikes.!
We like it here. Love being close to water. Pace of life is medium.
Hope this helps.
