Charleston is a beautiful and historic city, with friendly people and lots of good food. Our vacation there went from good to great due to Kevin McQuade, concierge extraordinaire. He sized up our family and made solid recommendations. He first advised us to rent tandem bikes from Affordabikes. Great call! We were able to easily see the city and the tandems were a blast, our kids loved them. Kevin's next recommendation was the Eco tour of a nearby barrier island. The tour was run by extremely knowledgeable guides who were passionate about the bay and the marine life. We enjoyed walking around the barrier island. Ed Macy's ghost tour was another Kevin rec and a big hit. Whether you believe or not, Ed tells a great story and it was worth it to see the College of Charleston campus at night. Since we were the adventurous types, Kevin sent us to Bertha's for some soul food off of the beaten track. A good meal and a real bargain.Our family also enjoyed Folly Beach (we ate at Taco Boy's) where we rented a golf cart and went to see the lighthouse. The Citadel campus was neat, especially if you are into history or the military. The final coup de grace was Kevin's special late night tour of the city. We were privileged that he chose to show us some of his favorite alleys, gardens and mansions that come alive at night. Kevin is passionate about Charleston and he made our family vacation a wonderful experience. Thanks!
