Rainbow Row & Waterfront Park | Charleston SC

This was probably one of my favorite times from our whole trip. Charleston, South Carolina is such a beautiful and historic city. We stayed in a hotel in the heart of downtown so that way we could walk everywhere we wanted to. We started our day walking from our hotel to The Battery and saw these huge gorgeous houses. Clark and I kept trying to guess how much the houses would sell for. I was guessing over a million but Clark thought no way. Who knows. Actually I know, I looked it up on Zillow and a bunch are actually for sale. The pink house that is pictures 5 photos below is for sale for 8.5 million so yeah, expensive. There are some very pretty houses and they are all so colorful. 
On our walk from the hotel to the Battery we saw a bunch of women selling palm tree woven baskets, roses, crosses, and bracelets. We stopped and Clark bought be some roses. You can see pictured above and the table with the lady’s photo on it is who we bought it from, she was so sweet. And did all the weaving herself. From The Battery we walked up to Rainbow Row then to Waterfront Park were we got to dip our feet in the Pineapple Fountain. Can we just talk about the Pineapple Fountain for a minute? It was a really cool fountain and there were kids swimming in it and it was nice to dip our feet in the fountain after walking through the hot and humid streets of Charleston. Rainbow Row was also really cool. I think it I lived in Charleston I would paint my house either a bright sunflower yellow (like the one above) or a lavender purple or maybe a turquoise blue. Ahhhh there are so many opntions. I don’t know. 
After leaving Waterfront Park we went to the Bakehouse to get some treats and cool down in the AC. I was really carving a cinnamon roll and Clark got a couple of cookies. After we walked to the corner of King and Queen Street and took a photo with it above our heads. Because Clark and I = King and Queen. Okay so that’s not true but still fun. Charleston is so pretty. I loved the cobblestone streets, the horse carriages, the colorful building, the architecture, the food, the italian ice stands on every corner, and all the people we met were so nice. I was once told that if I only visit one city in the south is should be Charleston SC and I can see why I was told that now. So lovely.
