Charleston, South Carolina


This is an “album” of photos of Charleston, South Carolina. It is intended to give a sense of this city steeped in American history with the full flavor of the south. Charleston is well-known across the United States and beyond for its unique culture, which blends traditional Southern American, English, French, and West African elements. Local seafood plays a key role in the city’s renowned cuisine which includes staple dishes such as Gumbo, She-Crab Soup, Fried Oysters, Low country Boil, Deviled Crab Cakes, Red Rice, Fried Green Tomatoes and Shrimp and Grits. It is also known for its ghosts and many ancient cemeteries. I hope you enjoy your virtual visit to Charleston’s renowned Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Folly Beach, old cemeteries and the streets of the historical district with their distinctive large homes with deep porches and window boxes full of flowers.

    I grew up in Charleston and now live out of the area. When I get home sick I will look for pictures to browse at to help ease the home sickness. Your pictures are gorgeous and I enjoyed reading the narrative. I hope you will not find me rude for pointing something out. You have Foley Beach, it is actually Folly Beach.

    Thanks!

      Thanks for the kudos, Theresa, and thanks for the typo correction!

    Do you have any skyline photos of charleston at night? I saw some online but they are not in you gallery! Thanks!

    • Deb Snelson February 5, 2014 at 7:45 pm #

      Yanni, I haven’t any skyline photos but would very much love to add some. Do you know the best place to stand to photograph the skyline? I will be there in April. Thanks!

    Charleston in NC is one of the best place to check out, never been to there, but one day will be there to check out Charleston. I just come across to this post when I am doing some searches about the place, it seems that is a beautiful place with more flowers and plants – indeed your photos on this page say so.

      Hi Karla, Charleston is indeed a beautiful place bursting with flowers – hope you get your chance to visit in the near future!

      I’m sure I’ll be back – was just there again this past March! Thanks for the offer!

    I’m visiting Charleston in February, 2016, and saw your pictures of the city. They’re absolutely beautiful! If you could choose 5 places to visit in Charleston, what would they be? I won’t be staying very long, just 3 days…I’m from Brazil, by the way, and my name is Cristina.

    • Deb Snelson July 21, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

      Hi Cristina, thanks for the praise for my photos – much appreciated! Hm… 5 places to visit. First, I would just walk around town. There are walking tours offered by many companies, but you could just walk on your own. Places that are must see: The Battery promenade and Waterfront Park, King Street and Meeting Street (walk down one to the waterfront, explore the waterfront, then back up the other), and especially Rainbow Row – thirteen colorful historic Georgian row houses. The houses are located north of Tradd St. and south of Elliot St. on East Bay Street, that is, 83 to 107 East Bay Street. If you have transportation I would recommend Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, although I am not sure what would be in bloom in February. End of March is the best time to visit the Gardens, which is when my photos were taken. And there is Cypress Gardens, a bit of a drive out of town, but enjoyable. For another list, I found this list but there are many other “best of” lists on the internet – happy planning to you!
