Charleston, South Carolina

We spent this past Thanksgiving in Charleston, South Carolina. It was the first time either of us had been there besides a bonsai trip to the port for our honeymoon cruise back in 2010. Charleston is full of colorful buildings, insane sunsets and history. Lots and lots of history. The churches are incredible. Each one more grand than the last. I love wandering through old cemeteries but unfortunately, the weekend we were there, they were all closed. But I did get to peep at some of the ornate, moss covered headstones through the fence. I’ve even heard some headstones in Charleston date all the way back to 1695. Another awesome place to visit is the 400+ year old Angel Oak tree, pictured below. Even a wide angle lens doesn’t do this tree justice. You must see it in person to truly appreciate it! We left Mavis and drove up from Southport, North Carolina and stayed with family in their townhome while we visited Charleston. So, unfortunately, we don’t have any RV parks to recommend! We did do a quick search and didn’t really see any around. If anyone knows of any good places to stay while in Charleston, please leave a comment! 🙂

  1. Try James Island County Park next time you hit Charleston….

  2. Hey Sheena! Kyle and I are RVers from Charleston! We’ve grown up in South Carolina basically our whole lives and between the two of us have lived and visited in many cities. So the Charleston area we know fairly well. However since we set out from there, we never camped anywhere. But there are a couple places that come to mind. There is a KOA out in Mount Pleasant (we’re not huge fans) and there is also James Island County Park. We have been to the county park on many day trips for waterfront trails and the dog park! We loved James Island living😎 Hope this helps for fellow RVers.

    PS- if you have the chance to visit Hilton Head Island , two hours south of chucktown, GO! That is where we both grew up & met in high school. It’s a quiet town and slightly less touristy. It’s beautiful!!

    1. Thank you so much for this! Good to know, we’ll check it out next time we are out that way! And yes, LOVE Hilton Head! Our favorite is the bike up and down the beach and around the island. The best biking!

  3. It was quite unexpected as I was able to read about a lot of beautiful places in Charleston. Somewhere in South Carolina and the likes? Hope you find good places to spend time with there!
