Tourist in Your Own Town: February 2016

We're starting a new monthly series! We love Charleston so much + tell people all the time that we are so lucky to get to live in a city that most people only get to visit. But we also know that when we travel we want to know where the locals go. Here's your local insider look at what we think is awesome around town.

Here's what we went around asking:

  1. How long have you lived in Charleston?
  2. What is your favorite thing about the people of Charleston?
  3. What is your favorite restaurant in Charleston?
  4. What is a secret spot that only locals know about?
  5. When you have family/ friends in town to visit, what do you take them to do?
  6. Why do you heart Charleston? ;)
