I decided to head down south to the city of Charleston, South Carolina. Flight times come in just under 2 hours (2 hours out and 1.5 hours back!) Having never been to Charleston, I chose to stay downtown in the historic district to be close to landmark locations on my list of places to see.
I learned a few things on my trip to the Palmetto City. First and foremost, Charleston is a city that forces you to make a lot of decisions. Shall I get another order of Shrimp and Grits? I already tried She Crab Soup, but should I get another bowl. Do I spend a day on a boat in the harbor or walking around taking pictures and visiting historical landmarks around town? An afternoon on the beach or marshland? Fishing or Kayaking?
Pick a weekend (any weekend,) gather your friends and prepare to eat your way through the city and experience the four major food groups for yourselves: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert.
Whether you have a Apple, Android or other type of phone (so long as it has a camera) you are set for some weekend photography sessions around the city. Or you can get your DSLR and head out your front door to take advantage of the endless photographic opportunities around the city.

I find myself heading north into upper Manhattan more and more for great food options. Washington Heights has a range of Latin America restaurants covering Dominican, Mexican and of course Salvadorian (amongst others.)
New York is the most populated city in the United States. It is home to some of the highest skyscrapers around. It has residential apartment buildings layered with tenants. Needless to say, it can be a crowded, congested place to live and visit. There are three moments when […]
Corner Social – My personal favorite spot for hot wings in Harlem. Corner Social has a full restaurant menu and a nice bar. It can get a little noisy but has a great atmosphere and is a good place to go with friends. The wings are big, flavorful, a little pricier than other places on the list, but this is my go to restaurant and I would recommend trying them out.
