Exploring the colorful houses of Charleston SC is something that I could do forever. Even the smallest alley has charm with large front porches, climbing ivy, cobblestone walkways and rot iron gates. Charleston is so rich in history and the well kept buildings throughout the city preserves the Antebellum period perfectly. The houses are magnificent and sparks major design inspiration for me when it comes to designing my own home.
If you follow me on any form of social media, you probably saw that I was visiting Charleston, SC for the 4th annual Blog Societies Conference. I headed down south solo last Thursday and stayed at the Charleston Historic Days Inn on Meeting Street, which was extremely close to the fabulous Belmond Charleston Place, where all the action of the TBS Conference took place. I visited Charleston back in 2014 for my Bachelorette Party (see recap here– way before I got into photography) and spent most of our visit partying it up around town. This time around I was super excited to see the city in a new light and have plenty of time to see the sights.
On Friday Morning, I woke up bright and early and decided to wonder around Charleston alone before the conference began. I grabbed some coffee from City Lights Coffee (the cutest local coffee shop on Market Street) and began my little adventure around Charleston. The city was quiet and lacked the normal crowds of tourists, so I decided to take the long way to The Battery area which includes Waterfront Park, the famous Pineapple Fountain and Rainbow Row. I was in my element and excited to take my sweet old time getting lost and taking some awesome shots. I took a ridiculous amount of pictures but wanted to share with you guys some of my favorites from my morning excursion.
Streets I explored:
East Bay Street
East Battery Street
South Battery Street
St Michael’s Alley
As well as plenty I can’t remember! Seriously wherever you wander you will find beautiful houses!
