It’s that time of year again in Charleston. School is out. The beach chairs have been dusted off. The weather is warm, and it’s officially the beginning of summer. Best of all, the beginning of summer brings Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto, the well-known festivals that have become such an integral piece of Charleston’s rich artistic and cultural backdrop. But with over 35 different acts and performances for Spoleto Festival USA, and countless events for the local Piccolo Spoleto Festival, where does one begin? I took some time this week to explore one of Traveling Ink’s favorite Piccolo Spoleto events, the Outdoor Art Exhibition in Marion Square.

Palmetto Carriage Testimony

Without a doubt, the best memory of our trip!!! Our driver had so much personality and kept us all in stitches while providing fantastic historical information about our route. He was friendly, approachable, and very knowledgeable. We will book a carriage tour again on our next trip.
