The city of Charleston in South Carolina has been legendary for many years. The Upper King neighborhood is a perfect example of one of those areas that have undergone quite a few changes over the last few years. These streets host unique boutiques and tasty restaurants, which will make you fall in love with this colorful city in an instant. The best place to start your exploration of Charleston is, of course, from a gorgeous boutique hotel. Settle in comfortably and then head out to explore.
Charleston has many things to offer to its visitors. A great place to start is the Riley Waterfront Park. This is where you can watch the ships from the pier, see the sun go down, and find yourself in a very romantic environment. Another wonderful location is the amazingly well-preserved house of Drayton Hall. This location has not been restored or renovated and that is also what makes it so great. Drayton Hall is a plantation house dating from the 18th century and has a remarkable view over the picturesque Ashley River.
Another 18th-century highlight is Middleton Place. This former rice plantation, now boasts the most amazing and unique plants and flowers. You will be here in no time using a rental car, which will make it much easier to explore all the beautiful sights Charleston and surrounds have to offer. At Middleton Place, you can partake in a very informative tour or enjoy the gorgeous view from its on-site restaurant.
