I must say the best part of our trip was getting there. On the recent 2-hour drive from Hilton Head our family took turns suggesting songs we wanted to hear. My son played each of our choices from Spotify (through his IPhone) and we had hilarious and poignant moments critiquing, complaining about or enjoying each other’s song choices. Most memorable song – Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z. I personally love this song but can't understand all the words. So our son googled the lyrics and gave us an engaging reading of this very intriguing rap song.
Everyone is so darned nice and welcoming in Charleston. We loved driving by the beautiful
mansions in the Battery, visiting Charleston’s historic City Hall
and its beautiful art and hearing from the very knowledgeable docent the story
surrounding John Trumbull’s portrait of George Washington (I can’t ruin the
story in case you go…), lunch on the waterfront at Fleet Landing (great food – don’t let the
industrial looking location put you off), coffee at Kudu's, and shopping the cute boutiques on King Street.
