What a gorgeous day to be living in Mt Pleasant SC with beautiful city of Charleston SC next door!!
King Street has been hailed as one of the best shopping spots in America according to U.S. News and World Report Every 2nd Sunday, King Street is blocked off and only foot traffic is allowed ---
A lot of shops put their wares on the street. There are musicians touting their expertise. Restaurants bring their tables out to the street --- people bring their children and dogs --- my goodness, so many dogs -- all kinds of dogs.
I believe that Charleston’s mayor puts it best: “This is a great opportunity to stroll and take your time visiting with friends, shopping and dining; to celebrate our most unique, urbane public place and examine our distinctive collection of retail shops and restaurants, ” said Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr.
Today, we had a family outing --- Boyd, Claude, Liza, Art, Eliza and Eliza’s best friend, Marissa, spent a couple of hours there --- had lunch outside in the sunshine and just walked & talked. Even visited Liza’s favorite store - the Apple store ---
I do believe that Eliza & Marissa’s favorite was the dogs --- they got to pet a lot of them.
If you live in the Charleston area and have not gone down for the 2nd Sunday, you are missing out on a lot.
