Lessons Learned | 101 Things to do in Charleston

101 Things to do in Charleston, SC | In The Next 30 Days I admit these 30 Days were a bit of a selfish indulgence for me. I live in a beautiful beautiful place, and any excuse I have to see more of it is a good one. The lesson learned this month is a simple one: there is so much to do in Charleston. So much. So instead of telling you all about what I’ve learned in June, I thought I’d share with you a list of things you can do in Charleston. Some I did in these 30 Days, some I just really want to do. Consider it inspiration for your future 30 Days or just a good excuse to get out of the house.
