Ohh Charleston..you truly are the definition of southern Charm! I recently traveled to this historic city to meet up with some of my girlfriends from college. We had an amazing weekend packed full of food, fun, and adventure. But we all agreed the activity we enjoyed the most was our pedal boat cruise through the Charleston Harbor with Saltwater Cycle. The only boat of its kind in the Holy City, Saltwater Cycle is so much more than a boat ride..it's an experience!
Similar to the pedal bike taverns that are famous on the streets of cities throughout the U.S., the 30 foot pontoon-style boat holds up to 16 passengers with 10 cycle seats, which power a large paddle-wheel at the back of the boat (don't worry there's a back up motor if needed). If you're not pedaling, the boat also features benched seating at the front of the boat where you can soak up the sun and there is plenty of room for walking around and of course dancing.

Finding great street art is one of my favorite things about traveling and a great way to discover more about the culture in a new destination. It's also a fun way to explore a city without having to spend a dime! And trust me Nashville has no shortage of murals. You're likely to find a new insta-worthy destination around every corner. In fact, depending on how long you're visiting, you'll likely need to choose a few must sees to ensure you make the most of your time.
There isn't just one location for street art and instead they're spread out throughout the entire city. This can make for a fun adventure if you have a car and lots of time. If not, I recommend visiting a few more popular areas such as 12 South or the Gulch which offer multiple murals within walking distance so you can get the most bang for your buck. There are also guided tours available which will take you around to different stops and share more background about the artists themselves. However, this doesn't give you a chance to explore some of the neighborhoods while you're visiting which I highly recommend.
Below I share some of my favorite stops on our recent weekend getaway as well as a few others which we didn't have a chance to see but will definitely be on my list for next time:
I love creating detailed travel guides to ensure you get the most out of your time. On this blog I'll be sharing some of my past trips in hopes that it helps you plan your next adventure. Pack your suitcase you never know where I'll be heading next!
