LOL I was going to submit Charleston, but I think you covered it very well. It's a beautiful town, and there is something there for everybody. I lived there in the late '70s and go back now every chance I get. I love it there.

This is a photo of the Cooper River Bridge that connects Mount Pleasant, SC and Charleston, SC on Highway 17. We stayed at a motel in Mount Pleasant near the bridge. We walked the walking and biking lane in the morning out as far as the island, which was one and half miles. We turned around and came back to the parking lot, making it a 3 mile walk.

We had so much fun that we did it again that night. Nighttime was also beautiful with the city lights reflecting in the water. It was a great way to spend time with our family.

I used to live in Mt Pleasant and worked in Charleston so went across this bridge daily. It was always a beautiful sight! Thank you for posting! It brought back some beautiful memories of living there.
