As we are quickly approaching spring break and the end of this series, I figured it is only natural that I highlight the hotspot for college students near where my brothers and I were raised. If you are looking for an educational and entertaining destination Charleston, South Carolina needs to be on your list.
If you are interested in some hands-on history during your break from classes then you should check out the historic battlegrounds of Fort Sumter. There is also a very interesting tour of the U.S.S. Yorktown that you can take if you make your way over to Patriot’s Point. The best part about having options like these is if you are plagued with poor weather then you will still have plenty of activities to keep you entertained during the day.
After a morning tour of historic sites, or a famed ghost tour, then you should head over to Folly Beach to enjoy the sun and sand. There are plenty of other beaches in the area, but this will be the one most appropriate for college students on vacation. For nightlife head over to King Street and spend some time in the local watering holes. If you are interested in continuing your history lessons into the evening, the Blind Tiger Pub is the oldest bar in the city – check it out.
For any readers who decide to take my advice and head to my hometown stomping grounds, please write feedback in the comments section below!
