If you're planning to stroll King Street anyway, take a two-block detour to step through the beautiful College of Charleston campus. It's a series of lovely historic manor homes that were turned into classroom buildings. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we plunked down on a bench to take in the scenery. Sadly, nobody offered us a tour!

Don't leave Charleston without visiting the campus of the oldest public institution in the United States. Wow! Absolutely, breathtaking! I wish I was 20 again and be able to go to school to a place like this. Gorgeous!

As a CofC graduate, it's hard to say something bad about the College because that can't be done. From the ageless charm of the Cistern to the bricked-in streets criss-crossing the campus, the serenity is intoxicating. even when school is in session, there still is a calm not found at other institutions.

The College of Charleston has a gorgeous campus. All of the administrative buildings are in the classic Charleston multi-level architecture with porches on each floor. The campus is quiet and lush with greenery and perfect for exploring on a morning walk.

We arrived while school was in session. Unfortunately it was raining. We walked around the beautiful campus. What was a bit of a disappointment was the lack of affordable merchandise in the college store. My teen girls wanted to pick up a sweatshirt or pair of shorts and we left empty handed because the prices were just ridiculous. The prices were comparable to other college stores, so it's a hang up I have with all of them.
