If you’re an American or have been living in the U.S. for some time, and have never visited Charleston, South Carolina, stop everything you’re doing right now and just book a flight or plan a road trip there. I’m serious. I don’t say that only because I’m French and this city looks and feels like Western Europe with palm trees. They also have good food. It’s just the most beautiful city I’ve seen in America (I mean, America, the continent) so far and a perfect destination for a long weekend trip. It’s also very affordable.
