After we left the Citadel, we once again visited downtown Charleston. Once again, we parked on Church Street in front of the St. Phillips Church. We, meaning the boys, were starved after the walking tour of the Citadel. Hubby and I promised them some ice cream before heading back to the beach house.
The family began walking down Queen Street towards Waterfront Park. Instead of ice cream, we found gelato which is even more delicious than ice cream. At Belgian Gelato, I tried a new dessert which was a scoop of gelato with espresso. The espresso flavor I tried was pistachio.
After we got our gelato, we walked to the Waterfront Park. There is a pineapple shaped fountain in the park. Kids and even some adults can get in the water to wade around. So cool.
There was also a splash pad area. The Wee One thought that was cool. He opted to try to avoid the streams of water, so he wouldn’t get wet.
We then walked to Philadelphia Avenue. When we were in Charleston in 2013, Hubby tried to find the geocache that is in Philadelphia Avenue. He wanted to try to find it. Success! It was found.
A stranger offered to take our photo at the entrance of Philadelphia Avenue. The photo is my current favorite photo of the family.
After we were finished getting gelato, we headed towards the Marketplace so that I could find some chocolate. Again, success!
Since we had chocolate and gummies, we headed back to the car so that we could go back to the beach house. On the way back to the beach house, we stopped at Chick-Fil-A for our dinner. The Wee One did not complain about his feet hurting while we were walking around the Citadel and then downtown Charleston, so we allowed him to pick our dinner.
Enjoy the video I created for the time we spent in downtown Charleston.
Have a magical day,
