Five Fun Things To Do in Charleston, South Carolina

I have always loved the South.

When I read Gone with the Wind for the first time in 7th grade, I was utterly captivated by the southern charm and gentility that Margaret Mitchell brought to life in her novel. Obviously, a lot has changed (for the better) since the Civil War, but many southern ways of life have stayed the same – and are a big part of making Charleston a simply delightful place to visit.

Having visited many different cities in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia and Florida, this wasn’t my first foray into the lower United States, but it was definitely my favorite. There is so much beauty and history to soak up, and it doesn’t take long to see why Charleston is consistently voted one of the friendliest cities in America.

We spent five days there, and I think it was a perfect amount of time. Many of the highlights can be fit into a long weekend, but I would recommended giving it an extra day or two if you can…because there is so much to do and see! Here are my recommendations on the top five things you absolutely must do when visiting the enchanting city of Charleston!

Top 5 Things to Do in Warsaw, Poland

Warsaw surprised me. 

As we were planning our visit, a few people that had been to Poland told me that I shouldn’t even bother with Warsaw, or just give it a day at the most. However, when I was doing my own research, I felt like there were enough things that we wanted to do and see to warrant spending a couple of days there – so that’s what we planned.

When our awesome driver/tour guide, Chris, drove us to Warsaw after our brief stay in Zakopane, we arrived at night. Upon first entering the city and seeing the boxy, cement buildings, crush of traffic and lack of charm, I remember thinking to myself “They were right…we should have skipped it.”

But, oh, how wrong I was!

Warsaw is wonderful, charming, proud, and full of amazing things to see and experience (and eat). I wish we had stayed another day or two, but now I have an excuse to go back! Based on my experiences there, I want to share with you my top five things to do in Warsaw.
