This was a great place for a family vacation. Everyone was friendly and the grounds were beautiful. We loved out 2 bedroom suite. We rode bicycles and walked. We even enjoyed the alligators from a distance. The baby alligators were really cute but I did not get too close. I highly recommend it.
We carried our granddaughter with us on a trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We had a very nice two bedroom suite. She loved it. The pool was great and there were other young children that she talked to and made friends. This is a very nice, family friendly resort.
We discovered Hall's years ago and fell in love with their crab claws. The original restaurant was in a little building and it stayed full most of the time. They now have a larger building beside the old building. The crab claw are still just as good. The hushpuppies and cheese sauce are brought out first. If you are not careful you will fill up before you get to the main course. All their seafood is delicious. If you have never tried frog leggs give them a try. We go to Hall's every time we are near Pensacola.
I have not stayed at the Lodge Alley Inn but I plan to on my next visit to Charleston. The ghost tour we went on meet in the courtyard of the Inn. There was a ghost story about one of the rooms. The next day we went back to the Inn and went inside and it was beautiful. The people were so nice. It dates back to the 1700s and has lots of charm.
The first time my husband and I visited Charleston SC we stayed at Fulton Lane Inn. We fell in love with the Inn and with Charleston. It is a romantic place in the middle of antique shops and within walking distant of everything. I love the breakast delivered to our room on a silver service. The room was large and beautiful. Great place to spend a romantic week. I definitely recommend it.
One of the best ways to see Historic Charleston is a walking tour. We did the Historic Homes tour. It was really enjoyable. I loved see the interior of the Edmondston-Alston House and the Nathaniel Russell House. It was a slow, leisurely walk down tree lined streets with historic homes on every side. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
The Ghost Walk tour in Charleston SC was interesting. The stories are very entertaining. The people that go on the tour are also very interesting. One lady hung on the tour guide's every word. The legends were very interesting. The cemeteries are full of history. I didn't expect to see any ghosts but I liked the history.
Magnolia is a beautiful plantation on the Ashley River near Charleston SC. It is worth the price of admission. You can spend the day walking around the grounds after you tour the house. I loved it.
If you are looking for a one of a kind gift, the Honey Pot is the place to go. They have painted glasware that makes great gifts. They also have pottery that is both decorative and useful. The hand painted glassware is what I like the best. I also fell in love with the ceramic roosters. It is a great place to find a special gift or to treat yourself.
This is a great place to go if you have a sweet tooth. If you are visiting the Arts and Crafts Community on Glades Rd, stop by and get some fudge and taffy. You can enjoy it while you drive around looking for greats buys. Be sure to buy some to take home.
