The two we (I took this trip by myself but keep in mind that, you’ll find it super easy to make friends while using other hostel guests) attended were Fuel and Hominy Grill. Hominy Grill was good but a tad too upscale making it our go-to restaurant of choice. But Fuel, oh sweet sassy molasses was that ever good! Housed in an ex- gas station, Fuel oozed funky repurposing as thick as crude oil but much more appealing. Tables made from fuel-cost placards, lamps produced from the gas pump handles a huge open-air bar where the service bays used to be, and endless creativity using the food made for any dining experience that’s a moment hit. Add to these completely reasonable prices and a good beer list so we found the well-known restaurant in every of Charleston. Try the mediocre ones, it’ll be delicious and fun I’m sure, but you’ll always get back to Fuel.
For more sightseeing, I teamed up with my hostel-mates so we went towards the Middleton Place plantation, a very beautiful and historic example of the extravagance with the old plantation owners. You can easily spend an entire day wandering the gardens, barns, and outbuildings on this place so plan accordingly. Oh, and watch for alligators popping out from the pools inside gardens. We saw somewhat nipper (about four feet long) sneak out with the pool and try to create his long ago to the wilderness with the river. We also took the ferry in the market to Fort Sumter for many more American history and continued a Haunted Charleston ghost tour that met up at the Griffon Pub, an incredibly old English style pub in the city center. This was plenty of fun and since many with the tour guides are also performing arts students … Read more
Okay, I have to will. I got the thought for this trip after watching a chapter of Giada’s Weekend Getaways about the Food Network. What can I say, she did an incredible job of showing the neighborhood color and history of Charleston making an incredibly convincing case to visit.
Not that it takes much convincing. Charleston is often a city surrounded ever and intrigue. It went to live in its current location in 1680, so as far as America goes, it offers some history. A central time a lot of America’s history – after looking at and been the central player in a lot of the slave trade, the Revolutionary War, and also the Civil War – and sometimes ravaged by natural disasters including earthquakes and hurricanes, Charleston can shrug all of it off and its quiet sophistication. You can equally as easily dine in the room that George Washington, as well as other noble founding fathers, once did as you can tour the reputation one of America’s most stratifying institutions with the Slave Market Museum. Haunted ghost tours along with good piracy give much to contemplate while dining at some of the city’s fine restaurants. And there can be a large amount of them.
Charleston is surely a tourist town – using a population of 120,000 as well as an annual 4 million visitors, it can be a city created to cater. And it does so with all the class of old-fashioned Southern Hospitality plus a city steeped in old money. To put it into perspective, the gentleman I sat close to about the plane ride in am eager to exemplify Charleston’s hospitality which he offered me a lift in his BMW convertible towards the place I was staying. Talk about arriving towards the hostel in fashion!

Porto Santo is one of the small islands in the Azores
of Madeira and has more than 5 miles of beautiful soft golden sand. The beach
is the destination most people come to Port Santo. There are many water sports
available in warm waters such as scuba diving, snorkeling, paragliding, and Jet
skiing. The beach is ideal for families and with a long stretch of beach, there
is always plenty of room for children to play safely, under your supervision
while you are sunbathing or relaxing in the many sun loungers provided. The weather
is around 25 degrees during the months of June to September with the rest of
the year still warm enough to relax on the beach. Close by are all the
amenities you require like toilets and food outlets.
Porto Santo is more known for its fabulous beaches
than it’s historic value and there isn’t a great deal of sightseeing, but there
are some wonderful walking or horse riding trails around the island. There are
plenty of bikes to hire for a tour around this idyllic place and it is best
seen at a slow pace so you can take in the lovely scenery. There are a few
peaks to climb but mostly the land is flat and lush green. Unfortunately, there
are no rolling green meadows and lush botanical gardens to visit or an abundance
of architecture, but the town area is very pleasant with cobbled streets and
lovely whitewashed buildings. You can visit Christopher Columbus’s house if you
can manage to drag yourself away from the beach or you could venture into one
of the other villages around the island. The island does have an excellent golf
course with magnificent views across to Madeira. There is a ferry ride that
takes approximately 2 … Read more
