One of my favorite things about Charleston is just how photo-worthy of a city it is. Every time I visit, I find myself taking long walks through the city’s streets, mainly to look at all the colorful houses. I have a thing for the unique front doors you’ll find on so many of the homes as you wander through the city. They’ve certainly got a knack for putting together a good window box, too. You’ve never seen a bunch flowers arranged so effortlessly as in a Charleston window box.

Every trip I’ve taken to Charleston has been in the summer, I don’t know why. But somehow the sweltering southern summer weather doesn’t seem so bad when you’re in such a pretty city. While I can’t say for sure, I feel like there has to be something to special about summer in the “Holy City.” Maybe it’s because you can easily find a way to escape the heat for an hour or so and easily learn from the locals where to go for a good southern meal.
