Holiday Whimsy

Santa Hat, Meeting Street, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



Travel and Leisure magazine recently named Charleston among the top 5 places in the world to spend the holidays. The historic Southern city was noted by the editors for its unique Lowcountry twist on Christmas. If the Santa hat on this colonial mansion's cupola is any indication, a holiday in Charleston will not soon be forgotten!
