My 2 best friends and I are planning a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras in February of 2015, and planning to stop in Charleston for 2 or 3 nights on our way back to Jersey. We have never been to South Carolina and are very excited! We want to plan our trip wisely as we only have a limited time. What are the "must dos" in Charleston for a short visit?
We are also looking for great bar / restaurant suggestions. We just graduated college in the past 2 years and are looking for a younger crowd. We much prefer bars (especially dive bars) to clubs and live music is always a plus!
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
