South Carolina City Is One Of The Nation’s Most Walkable Cities
If you’re like me it seems like you’re always on the go. You jump from one day to the next in a whirlwind combining jobs, responsibilities and hopefully some down time at the end of the day. But, one thing is certain. No matter where you go or how you get there, travel can be hectic. However, wouldn’t it be nice to stop, slow down and smell the roses? So, TravelAwaits.com polled readers to find the nation’s most walkable cities. And, the South Carolina city of Charleston made their list.
The publication points out that in addition to being good exercise, walking allows for more thoughtful exploration in communities and neighborhoods. Travel Awaits recently published the list of 12 most walkable cities. And, Charleston landed at number 9. Some of the charm of Charleston that helped them make the list surrounds the historic district. The article highlights attractions to see on foot including old church steeples to “rainbow row.” That refers to the beautiful and colorfully painted houses.
And, we visited Charleston many times. I love the horse drawn carriage tours. Technically, you’re not doing the walking. But, you get a glimpse into historic Charleston. And, the guides provide stories of the rich past of the city. Of course, there’s no shortage of shopping and art. And, the food in Charleston is to die for. It’s the first place I ever had Shrimp & Grits. Also, my most recent recommendation is Burwell’s. Trust me. It’s incredible. And, the ghost tours are on point. Our first trip to Charleston included a visit to the historic Provost Dungeon.
According to the Travel Awaits list, readers found favorite walkable cities all around the country including spots in Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas. But, see for yourself and plan your next trip. So, check out the full list. And, find out more about the South Carolina city of Charleston that made the top 10.
