Just back from a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, what a beautiful southern city. It looks a lot like Savannah, but it's much larger. Charleston was founded in 1670--and that's old by American standards-- and was named Charles Town in honor of Charles II of England. It's renowned for its many beautiful churches and its pastel antebellum houses. We walked everywhere as my feet and knees will attest to.
We stayed at the Ellis House a small boutique hotel in the historic district where we had 2 balconies, a 4-poster bed, wine and cheese in the courtyard and breakfast delivered to our door. Our only complaint was that the bed was so high we needed some steps to get into it and there weren't any, so one of us jumped in---Mac--and he then pulled me up.
