The Citadel is a beautiful military college....be sure to visit a Friday afternoon parade. Proud to have a husband and brother as graduates of this amazing school. Love tradition!

My husband went to school here, and we were married here. A beautiful campus and a must see if you have never been there. Try to catch a parade.

It is hard to believe the Citadel Castle with checkerboard courtyard is real and not a Disney confection...a must see in Charleston.

The best military school in the south. The graduates make up a who's who of military greatness. Stroll the grounds and watch the cadets drill. Beautiful southern archetecture. Take it all in.
