Shade Seekers: SOB walk

Pluff Mud is guest blogging over at today and we will be collaborating in more posts to come to bring you fresh ideas for families in the Charleston area. Have you checked out Charleston With Kids lately? This is an excellent resource for finding activities and programs geared for children of all ages! Thanks so much to the crew at Charleston With Kids for hosting me today.

Shade Seekers: SOB walk

I'm delighted to be contributing here on the blog today with a few ideas for finding a reprieve from the heat with your little ones. The "dog days of summer" are truly upon us making this is the perfect time to take a free stroll South Of Broad in downtown Charleston. These leafy, moss-draped streets offer the comfort of shade and a glimpse of beautiful gardens, history, and quiet; you can hear the birds here as you wander early in the morning. Pack your stroller and some cold drinks and lose yourself for a blissful hour or two in this tranquil corner of our city.

 As you walk, talk about the shadows cast by the trees and look for the garden with the rabbit hutch. There's the added bonus of the best breeze in town at White Point Gardens where you can begin and end your walk. Be inspired by these beautiful homes and gardens and dream a little while you walk. This is your city - walking it helps you claim it as your own as your familiarity deepens with every step. Enjoy!

Parking: I recommend parking along East Battery at the edge of White Point Gardens. There are some free zones here and metered parking on the streets around White Point Gardens. Walk through the garden along to Atlantic and Lamboll Streets. Part of the charm is choosing your favorite streets to stroll again and again. Use this map as a guide of the area:
