Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston, the South Carolina port city founded in 1670, is defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and pastel antebellum houses, particularly in the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts.

Columbia, South Carolina

Columbia, South Carolina Day 1 This is a trip where we’re heading to Charleston, SC to cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy.
