K-girl, I actually went into this preferring Charleston right from the start. I guess I'm looking for someone to talk me into Savannah! So far, your and Kayelle's posts are just re-affirming why we also like Charleston.

BTW, if you like cozy mystery books, there is a series that takes place in Charleston. The Tea Shop Mysteries are written by Laura Childs. The Charleston of her books is not the one you see when you visit, but you can clearly see her vision of Charleston as you read through the series. As with most book series, this one is best started with Book One. She has great character development as the books progress.

It will be 30 years this year... I will ask to go to Staples, again...maybe the bookstore.

CG.......you indeed deserve another carriage ride, especially if your last one was that long ago!
I know the cost can sometimes seem extravagant but still less than a fancy dinner for two. They are worth it to us, and some of our best travel memories from all over the world.

I have to look into those books CG. Thanks for the tip.

When we returned from that southern trip, I quickly devoured https://www.goodreads.com/series/69139-savannah-quartet

That summer I read the Savannah quartet , and then everything else she wrote too.

Funny, I mentioned this thread to DH and he jumped up,

"If they're going through Charleston, tell them about the Christmas Light show on James Island, that's a must!"

... and I agree with him, if your travel plans are at the latter part of
November, you might be able to hit that highlight in your Charleston trip.

Holiday Festival of Lights, Charleston SC 2014 - James Island Country Park - Charleston Lowcountry .com

This year it starts on November 14th

We went last year and bought our tickets at the Visitors Center

Kayelle, my camera doesn't take very good night-time photos, but it was unbelievable! Every turn we made, everyone in the car, OOH'd and AAH'd and WOW look at that!
there are some walking paths as well as food vendors,
so bring some cash if you go.

It was a little cool in the evenings, so do bring a jacket to the light show.

I'd love to go back someday, but DH and I have made a pact that if we can help it, we want see as much of the United States as we can, so that means few re-visits are allowed...
well, with the exception of Oahu Hawaii of course

Personally we'd opt for the train ride offered to see the lights. Steve loves any kind of train. If I showed this to him right now, we'd be headed there in a few weeks.
