The Magic of Charleston

Touring one of Charleston’s iconic homes

I spent a weekend in Charleston, South Carolina, during which time I went on a history tour with Charleston Old Walled City Tours, ate the region’s famous shrimp & grits, learnt about their haunted graveyards, enjoyed their world-famous architecture + overlooked their stunning ocean. Here’s a 1-minute video Skybok produced on this gorgeous town!

Headed by two-time James Beard award-winning chef Sean Brock, Husk’s menu is unique not only because of its interesting takes on Southern favorites but also because the menu changes twice a day.

Pineapples are a symbol of hospitality in Charleston. Back in the day, sea captains would announce their arrival and invite people to hear their stories by sticking a pineapple prominently outside their homes.

All the homes in Charleston have verandahs that face south or west.
Architecture Charleston
It was originally Charles Towne, named for King Charles II, but they dropped the “w” and fancy “e” in 1783 (it wasn’t popular to have cities named directly after British royalty then)
