Only a fool won’t fall for Charleston. I have always been captivated by the culture of the South – the rich historical narratives, the soulful cuisine, the warmth of the people, land ownership by generations of the wealthy, the distinctive Southern dialect.
And the gorgeous architecture. There is probably nothing that will not catch your eyes (and heart) in Charleston. Everything is just pretty, this city is not afraid of colors, painting their homes in pastel not only for status but evidently to cool the heat off .The location of many scenes of the movie “The Notebook”, downtown Charleston is breathtaking especially when toured on a horse carriage. Anyone who is a fan of Nicholas Sparks will surely love this charming city of South Carolina.
45 minutes to an hour carriage tour available at $20 for adults, $12 for children (4-11) and children under 4 ride for FREE :)
The historic Charleston City Market is one of the oldest in the country where the newly-freed slaves started to make a living after the Civil War. Some products for sale are locally crafted sweetgrass baskets, clothing, artwork, jewelry and local souvenirs
Luxurious shops line the King Street.
Charleston Market Hall, an example of Greek Revival style architecture.
Gas lamps are still used to light the streets of Charleston, day and night, adding charisma to this already gorgeous city.
The city’s post office.
St.Phillip’s Church, an Anglican.
St. Patrick Catholic Church taken from the left.
Charleston’s rainbow street where houses are shouting in pastel colors is a smart idea to cool off homes facing the ocean.
The famous pineapple fountain.
And architectural displays of unique character.
Cobble-stoned street :)

It looks so much European. The churches, the establishments and building, and that cobblestone path!!! WOW! It’s like going to Paris.
yes, and this is probably the only closest thing i can get next to Paris haha. it is a really beautiful city and every resident of Charleston takes pride in what they have. come here rommel :)
Looks very promising. I’ll put it in my Bucketlist. But it’s not likely so don’t hold thy breath. :D
But really, you captured the place very well. Did you know that it resembles a lot of European destinations, or just came out naturally? Your images seem to focus on those European similarities.
yes, Charleston actually resembles a lot like a European city. this historic place was in fact established by English settlers on the west bank of the Ashley River. they named this city originally as
Charles Town, after Charles II of England :)
also, if you want to see more of a European Style of architecture, you may want to check my entry on Biltmore House and Gardens, North Carolina. the place was patterned with Europe in mind and it is stunning :)
ikaw ng capture ani tanan pol? wow…
yes marnz :) puhon toledo na pud ako ifeature :)
You captured the city so well :) I hope you got to eat lots and lots while you we’re here. If you’re ever in the city again I’d love to show you some local hidden treasures!
Thank you Charleston PR Girl. I always feel spoiled every time we are in Charleston. Gosh, I miss that city. We even tried the ghost tour there but I did not take photos thinking I might have nightmares. Amazing food, amazing people, amazing place. I will surely let you know once we get to visit again.
