Charleston South Carolina

We had a wonderful trip to Charleston during March break. Although they too have had a cold 'winter' there was an amazing amount of gardens in bloom there already. I'd love to go back at another time of year to see their gardens again.

Here is a short video of some pictures we took

Nice, very nice .. I am getting a yearning for mint juleps after viewing. A lot of history there and the flowers are great to see.

What a delightful overview of Charleston. Was there about 20 yrs. ago and this brought back some memories of that visit. The homes and gardens are so amazing. Edie

Beautiful! Love those old houses. They remind me of Halifax.

Eeyore -- you're right, I didn't think of that! I loved Halifax when I visited there as well. Guess we know what I like.

What a lovely presentation. Charleston is one of my favourite cities in the U.S. We have a condo on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, and we often go to Charleston to visit. Savannah is also a great trip. We seem to find something new each time we visit either of these two gorgeous cities.

Good to hear about Savannah. I suspect we will go back again next March break and that would be a great day trip for us.
