A QUICK STOP AT CHARLESTON, USA
I visited Charleston on a family holiday that started in New York and ended on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. We hired a car are drove down the East Coast stopping at a couple of points along the way – one of which being Charleston. We were only here for one night, so we tried to fit as much in to our day as possible! Charleston is the oldest and second-largest city in South Carolina (SC) with current trends noting it as the fastest-growing city in SC. It’s known for its rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, and friendly people. Charleston has even been awarded the title of “America’s Most Friendly City” and ‘the most polite and hospitable city in America‘. It’s a quaint place, with amazing houses and was where a lot of The Notebook was filmed! You can even visit the same movie theatre that the characters visit. On the way to Charleston (about 40 mins away) we also stopped at Cypress Gardens, which is where the scene on the lake (with all the ducks) is filmed. You can even hire a canoe and paddle the same journey yourself- just watch out for the resident crocs! Cypress Gardens is definitely worth a visit …
