October 23, 2001 – I spent my first winter after starting to full-time RV in Charleston. It was time to replenish the gas funds by getting more temp legal assistant jobs. So I spent several months there and fell in love with its charm and history.
Since then, I’ve visited family who moved to South Carolina and am always happy to see more of this gracious state. See the links on the right for places I’ve visited. If you have any suggestions of your own favorites or feedback, I’d love to hear from you in Comments below.
One of the law offices I worked at had offices on a cobblestone street that ran off Broad Street seen here. I really enjoyed exploring all the little nooks and crannies in this historic area.
But the grand historic houses on the Battery really blew my mind!
I enjoyed every one of the South Carolina State Parks I camped at:
Dreher Island was my first exposure to South Carolina state parks when I stayed here while visiting family near Chapin. What a great first impression!
Paris Mountain was next and was not only a beautiful park with a great campground, but close to the charming town of Greenville with the incomparable Park on the Reedy.
I stopped at Sesquicentennial State Park twice and really appreciate this convenient and lovely campground as my background when I’m visiting family in Columbia.
I think that Table Rock was my overall favorite, though. The trails are some of the best I’ve found and the nearby waterfalls was a big surprise to me – I didn’t realize that SC had so many.
Twin Falls was one of them and one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen anywhere. And I’m a complete waterfall freak and seek them out whenever I can.
