Charleston, SC

This is a cool town! I'm down here for one more night but pretty much done with work. Never been here but the town is really cool. Lots of history, good sea food, tons of bars and pubs and beautiful women walking around everywhere.

Anyone been here? Any recommendations on where to go, what to do or what to check out?

Thanks

Cool town! Just sucks when it rains, cause parts of it flood. I was only 18 so I hit house parties... reminds me of when we were playing quarters, and I chugged a beer, and swallowed the quarter.

A buddy of mine was down there over the summer. He said the women:men ratio is something like 3:1. One of the reasons I'm looking at it as a place to move to!

When the pepper spray runs out, can I have your number?

Naval Museum across the river. You can wander the ships to your heart's content.

Also, there's a reveloutionary era fort out east of town. IIRC, it's Fort Pulaski?
