Pet-friendly question

by myollie

Are there pet-friendly beaches and accommodations that one would recommend for a weekend getaway? Looking online but having a hard time getting information. Thanks!

One of your best bets may be to go to vrbo.com. They show vacation/beach rentals for pet and non pet vacationers. The pet friendly accomodations will have a paw print icon. The website is great because it covers all of the U.S. We have been going to Kiawah/Charleston area for the last 7 years and will be getting a puppy this summer, so we are in the "same boat" regarding having to search out pet friendly accomodations. Pets deserve a vacation too. Good luck on your search.

Some hotels in the Historic District allow dogs for an additional fee. Don't know about the islands.
When we visit Charleston and nearby islands, we see quite a few dogs.

Travel Tips for Charleston

Interesting Cemetery

by zrim

This little cemetery is right in the middle of the historic district next to an extremely old church (old by American standards anyway.) These tombstones must mark the spots of some of the oldest graves in all of Charleston, dating back well before the Revolutionary War.

Sweetgrass Baskets and the Gullah

by TheTravelingNerd

Charleston sweetgrass baskets date back over 300 years. The tradition was brought here by slaves from Africa and are an important craft and artform to the Gullah people of Charleston. The baskets are made of local sweetgrass by Gullah women. You can find women selling these downtown in the Market. Some of the designs are really amazing. The Gullah are descendants of African slaves many who came from Angola. The baskets were used to harvest rice and the tradition is handed down to each generation.The Gullah are comparable to the Creoles of Louisianna, but different of course. The Gullah are mainly in South Carolina...being a unique culture they have their own food, stories, music and (my favorite) language. The Gullah language is english mixed with over 4,000 African words from tribes all over Africa. Up until the 1940's alot of Gullah people still lived downtown, but now most of them are just on the islands. My grandfather can speak some Gullah just from growing up downtown and being around it. You can see some nice examples of the baskets on this website http://charlestonsweetgrass.com

Cool Off with Genuine Italian Gelato

by riorich55

After visiting our 2nd historic house of the day it was time for an afternoon break and a stop at Paolo's Gelato Italiano. We had seen this place during our lunch stop next door, but we had decided we weren't ready for a dessert yet after lunch so we made it a point to stop back about 90 minutes late.

Once we stopped into the store we were overwhelmed at the wide variety of all sorts of tasty creations, all very authentic Italian. We actually only ended up getting a Hazelnut Flavored Gelatto with a Wafer Cookie as we were still a little full from lunch and didn't want to spoil our dinner a little later in the day.

What was unique were the number of flavors available and if you look at this video connection the different types of gelato creations they can prepare. They have cream flavors, fruit flavors and then the unique flower flavors (violet as an example) and even vegetable flavors (rosemary).

I wasn't sure how to classify this tip. But I opted to keep it separate from the restaurant reviews, since it's really not a restaurant but a hidden treasure in Charleston. Paolo has one other location in Atlanta. Paolo didn't serve us during the day, but when we walked by on the way back to our car later that evening we saw him serving up some creations to some other satisfied customers.

BRING MONEY LOTS OF MONEY & a Big Truck!

by tpangelinan about Many high dollar stores to shop in!

Well to start with, when we got into town and on King St. you really notice the town and some of what it has to offer. Stores lined the streets for blocks, it started with Saks Fifth Avenue with limo's parked out front waiting. You will find any thing and every thing on this street for a price! Banana Republic, Lucky Brand, Tommy Bahama's, Magaritaville, William & Sanoma,Puma, Steve Madden, Gap and so much more. Shopping heaven, so if you got the money be ready to part with it! But have fun while doing so! If you want craft and local artist work go to Market street and visit their stores!
