It’s not a secret that I love Charleston. The culture, the history, the food, the weather, the beaches, the people, I could go on and on. This is my first post in a series of places we love around Charleston! My family and I hit up King Street this week and stopped in to some of the places we love between Market and Calhoun Streets.
