Charms dwell in picturesque Charleston, where cobblestone streets weave between confection-colored Antebellum mansions and flowering trees shower the sidewalks with colorful petals.
The beauty of Charleston is a blogger’s dream, and we recently invited nine ladies-who-blog to discover the city’s appeal firsthand.
Grace Atwood, Stripes & Sequins
“I fell in love with the city and all of the amazing people I met. It broke my heart a little to leave (and head back to cold, crowded New York.) But I’ll be back. There’s still so much to do and see. Lucky for me (as I mentioned before) it’s only an hour and a half flight from New York.”
Caroline Knapp, House of Harper
“A walking tour really is the only way to explore Charleston, in my opinion. There is so much detail to be seen strolling the cobblestone streets, peeking into some of the oldest churches in the US and lusting over all the beautiful homes, gardens and piazzas (porches).”
Mary Summers, So Then They Say
“I am heading to Charleston today! I can’t wait to see this beautiful city as everyone I know who has been, loves it.”
Amy Havins, Dallas Wardrobe
“I am not sure what I was expecting for my first trip ever to Charleston. I mean I have always heard that it is one of the most charming cities in the south but you never really ‘know’ how something is until you experience it first hand.”
Jamie Meares, I Suwanee
“I spent last weekend in Charleston…I stayed at the perfectly pink mills house inn, dined on delicious food from a few of my favorite restaurants: the Daily, The Grocery and The Macintosh, took a fun and fact-filled walking tour with Bullldog Tours…rode in a rickshaw, dined at the home of a true southern belle, aptly named Rhett listened to bluegrass…made some friends and plotted my next trip back. I heart charleston.”

Carly Heitlinger, College Prepster
“I love the houses. Really, I can’t believe I got on a plane to come back to NYC at all. The colors, the flower boxes, the cobblestone streets. I could not get enough.”

Mackenzie Horan, Design Darling
“It was such a treat to spend three days in a new-to-me city with some of my favorite people on earth. I already can’t wait to go back!”

Chassity Evans, Look Linger Love
“Sunday morning we had a farewell/Meet the Makers brunch at the Mills House. It was a great chance for the the girls to chat with some of Charleston’s local designers! Made my heart happy. It was really such a fun time. I stayed near the Fat & Juicy bloody mary bar and the Callie’s Biscuits station.”
