The 8 Most "Instagrammable" Places in Charleston This Spring

posted by Wesley Sharp -

Charleston, SC has become one of the most places to visit. It's southern hospitality and beauty is unlike any other. Last year we were named The Best City in the United States by Travel and Leisure and number 2 in the world. 

Let's capitalize off of its spring beauty and leave our Instagram feeds filled with excellent content for your followers to enjoy and hopefully get you some hearts. Here are a list of the most "Instagrammable" places to photograph in and around Charleston, South Carolina.

1. 52 Meeting Street

Everywhere in Downtown Charleston is filled with southern charm but the fences at 52 Meeting Street on another level. This spring, give your photos a pop of color with the blooming Wisteria flower backdrop. 

Pinch me, I must be dreaming ๐Ÿ’œ The gorgeous blooming spring here in Charleston has inspired me to bring out a few favorite pieces from last year, like this whimsical frill hem skirt! Itโ€™s still in stock in all sizes, 25% off, and a total dream come true ๐Ÿ˜ Also for those of you wondering, this beautiful wisteria is on Meeting Street in downtown Charleston! You have to check it out while itโ€™s in itโ€™s magical prime ๐Ÿฆ„ (A big thanks to my fab photographer @nmicklephotography for finding it for me!)

2. Rainbow Row

Obviously, Rainbow Row is another great place to give your photos some color. Located between 79 to 107 East Bay Street, the 13 buildings are some of the most photographed locations in Charleston. Their pastel colors and classic Georgian architecture has made Rainbow Row a staple of Charleston.

3. The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits

Looking for a great rooftop location to Instagram and maybe grab a few drinks? The Watch Rooftop at The Restoration Hotel has some great views; perfect for a spring sunset.

Best rooftop in Charleston? The view from The Watch Rooftop at @therestorationhotel is my absolute favorite. And how perfect is this top from @thefinickyfilly? It matched the pastel sky (totally planned it ๐Ÿ˜‰). #charleston #charlestonsc #chs #charlestonblonde #therestoration ๐Ÿ“ท| @catherine_ann_photography

4. Pitt Street Bridge

This old trolley bridge is an awesome place to photograph. There are so many different types of people to photograph. On any given day you can find people fishing, runners, puppies, dolphins swimming, and beautiful sunsets. All this with the scenic view of the Ravenel Bridge to the north east.

Take me to where the wild things are ... โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ: @cheyenneellis for #aimtruebook #nostretchypants #aimtrue

6. Sunset Cay Ship Store

If you need a sunset in your Instagram, Sunset Cay is the place to go. Overlooking the Sunset Cay Marina on Folly Beach, you will experience some incredible sunsets. Grab some drinks and enjoy the view.

Rain, rain go away... bring me more nights like this one at #sunsetcay! #follybeach #charlestonsunsets

7. Leon's Oyster Shop

There's nothing more southern than chicken and oysters. This charming/award-winning restaurant on King Street is perfect for your Instagram feed. The rustic patio seating and facade is throws off some really good vibes. Plus grab a ice cream cone and some frozen drinks for the warm weather. 

I actually wanted a milkshake, but they donโ€™t photograph as well... so, cone๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ’•

8. Fort Moultrie

The historic fort on Sullivans Island might not be the first place you think of when you want to post an Instagram, but the place has a lot of variety to offer for your shots. Inside the fort, you'll find bright yellow walls you can use as backdrops contrast that with creepy corridors. The black painted walls on the outside can give you some great moody portraits. 

Walk out to the beach and take some pictures on the jetty or the sunsetting over downtown Charleston. 

zoe and mya and i did not learn a single thing at fort moultrie because we spend the entire time taking pictures but it was worth it!
