Exploring Charleston

Although this road trip was planned to explore the "Christmas-ness" of cities, Michael and I wanted to check out Charleston during the day.

Charleston has many great places to explore, as well as many great places to eat. And anyone who knows Michael and I, we love trying new eateries.

Great places to explore in Charleston:
· Kings Street (many great antique shops, as well as main stream shops)
· Battery Park
· Tradd Street (Beautiful Row Houses, plus the smallest house in South Carolina - Great to see by bike)
· Rainbow Row (Off of East Bay Street there is about 2 blocks of row houses painted in a rainbow like color scheme - very nice backdrop for pictures)
· North Market Street (Great bars along this area - however there is  an open air market that is VERY touristy, so don't be fooled by their "discounts")
· East Bay Street by North Market (Great bars)
Great Eateries and Bars:
· Cru Cafe 18 Pinckney Street (Amazing Fried Oyster Salad and Grilled Swordfish with Shrimp and Grits)
· Pearlz Oyster Bar 153 East Bay Street (You have to try the Oyster Shot – Raw Oyster, Pepper Vodka, cocktail Sauce with a squeeze of lemon – if you like that sort of thing)
· Patat Spot Friet & Falafel 41B George Street (Amazing French Fries with a variety of dipping sauces – everything is made to order!)
· Tommy Condon's Irish Pub 160 Church St (Great beer selection with a lot of local beers brewed right in Charleston)
· Freshberry Frozen Yogurt Café 39 George St. (Creamy yogurt goodness – that is all I have to say!)
· The Blind Tiger 38 Broad St. (Great atmosphere, rustic outside area – definitely brought me back to my college years! Did I mention $2.50 New Castles!)
· TONS MORE, but Michael and I only got to experience these.

  5. UX design might be a bit cost-prohibitive to some, top agency-tier work quality and commitment to excellent service more than make up for the price.
