Trip Report 14 Days I'm spending in Charleston SC

Jump to last reply

Airfare was high. Charleston is not a hub for any airline plus they have no discount airlines flying in or out. We are staying on Isle of Palms. It was easy to find from the Airport. Climate: 93% and humid. Hoping that changes soon.

We rented a small house for the 3 of us at this "by owner" website: http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/south-carolina/charleston-area
We were able to negotiate a few hundred dollars off rent since we are staying 2 weeks.

This morning we shopped at local grocery store for staples. A nice shopping center with gourmet - common grocery items, boutiques, small cafe, etc. is less than a mile drive. We have spent time at the beach. It is clean. No shells. Water is warm in August. Then lunch at a beach bar, Coconut Joes. Food was just OK, but great view of ocean. My highlight was a frozen Coconut drink. It's like a Pina Coloda with roasted coconut shavings on top. Here some reviews: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g54283-d476162-Reviews-Coconut_Joe_s-Isle_of_Palms_South_Carolina.html I would not drive to eat here, but it is just a walk off the beach.

Since it's my first day, I'm going to explore and get ready for a tour of the Plantations in Charleston tomorrow. They were built back in 1700 - 1800's. George Washington stayed at one. If interested check back tomorrow night for a update.
