First visit to Charleston: Love at first sight

Jump to last reply

We spent our first few hours in Charleston, drove down King, walked along the Battery, walked through some of the Historic District and French Quarter, flew over the bridge, hit the beach for a half hour, stopped for an early dinner at Hall's Chop House and a bag full of macarons and left 5 hours after arriving. We're ready to relocate!

Charleston is one of the most beautiful American cities I've visited. Parts of the city are evocative of the West Village in Manhattan, and other neighborhoods are reminiscent of the cobblestoned streets of Nantucket. The air is very soft and the light very diffused. This place is New Orleans' better behaved twin sister.

Where's a great place to live in the city?
