The Sights of Charleston

The College of Charleston was the last stop for our college touring extravaganza this Spring Break. You might say we saved the best (or most scenic) for last. Enjoy a peek inside one of the most beautiful cities in the country. We had so much fun. After an official tour of the College of Charleston, we ate lunch at Nick’s BBQ on King Street. I highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich with a side of fried green tomatoes and an iced tea. Can you guess what we did next? Oh yes, a whole lot of shopping. King street is hot spot for sure.

Historic brick homes, Spanish moss in the trees and blue sky. You could say it was a picture perfect day. Get a glimpse of our entire college touring trip on Instagram @lauratrevey.

Notice the herringbone brick pattern on campus. Story has it that the president’s wife’s brother was an out of work bricklayer in the 1930s when the school was expanding.  So the president’s wife said, “Throw my brother a bone, let him lay all the brickwork for the school.” The president said, “Ok, no problem.  I’ll do that.”  The bricklayer was a very smart man, so the pattern that you see on the ground now is a herringbone pattern.  It is the most expensive pattern that you can lay in brickwork.
