Harleston Village

Colonial Lake Park-Charleston South Carolina

One thing living in Savannah taught me is to get away from the tourist areas and check out other areas of the city.  I took a drive to Charleston with my lunch packed in a cooler and decided to relax at Colonial Lake.  It is outside of the Historic district but very close by.  The walk around the lake is enjoyable and the flower gardens are beautiful.

The neighborhood is called Harleston Village and was established in 1770.  Take a look at these beautiful homes.

And staying true to the look of the South the fancy iron work on fencing and gates finishes off the view from the other side of the pond.

If you make your way to Charleston South Carolina, program your GPS for Trumbo Street and you will arrive in this village neighborhood.

I hope you are enjoying the sites of Coastal Georgia and South Carolina.  Charleston is a city rich in history, great restaurants, many parks, beautiful year round flowers and so much to see.

Thanks for visiting, to keep walking stop by and visit restlessjo:

  1. It’s certainly a stylish neighbourhood, Alice. Many thanks for the link 🙂 🙂 Did I miss you out this week again? I tend to do a midweek roundup, depending how busy I am, and I mostly take the links from my comments or pingbacks. I will make an effort and open a new post now so that you are there for next time…. Sorry!
