When it comes to traveling, just about everywhere is on your list. You have a note in your phone, full of the dreamy international destinations you want to check out. There are links to various accommodation options and excursions under each bullet point. Then, there's your list solely dedicated to spots in the U.S., from cities like Los Angeles, California to Nashville, Tennessee. Most recently, though, Charleston, South Carolina has been on your mind. Spring break is coming up, or your bestie's bachelorette party. It would be the perfect place to go! Do yourself a favor and grab some Instagram captions for Charleston now, before you start exploring the South.
Full disclosure: I've never truly explored the southern half of our country. As a kid, I went to Walt Disney World in Florida and had a few layovers in Charlotte, North Carolina. But, that's basically the extent of my travel experience there. I know that I'm missing out on plates of chicken and waffles, and some of the dreamiest architecture in the world. I know that there are cute piers and streets lined with gorgeous, green trees and flowers that are blooming all the colors of the rainbow.
Maybe it's time to put something in the books, huh? That's what you did, after all. You saw the words "spring break" marked in your calendar, or realized that your bestie deserves a bachelorette that's so cool and artsy from start to finish. So, you booked a few plane tickets to Charleston, and now you're almost on your way. All you need — other than some disposable cameras and a bunch of cute outfits — are a few of these 28 captions for exploring this city. (Thank me with my own plane ticket, OK?)
