costoflivingCharleston is such a great place to raise a family. From fun ocean beaches, fishing, amazing restaurants and friendly neighbors, no wonder the area is growing and rated so high as a great place to live. There is always something to do thanks in part to the amazing weather year around.  As a vacation destination, Charleston and the surrounding areas is like living a vacation lifestyle as part of the norm. The tennis and golf are first class and no matter where you live in the area you are 30 min or less from some of the best beaches on the East coast.

While the seasons do exist, there is rarely a cold day to keep one cooped up inside too long. What’s not to like. Well, now that America has discovered Charleston, the city planners are playing catch up on managing the traffic. Even that is improving depending on what area you are in. For most it’s a small price to pay to be so close to all the good things Charleston has to offer. Overall, the cost to live in Charleston is a bargain. Some would say the Holy City is the best of all worlds


Carnival Cruises CharlestonNo more driving or flying to Miami to take a Carribean Cruise. Carnival Ships make regular stops now in Charleston.

Carnival Fantasy has delighted countless passengers since she launched. It’s no surprise that she was the original Fantasy class ship, a series that truly showed the world how fun is done.

The Carnival Fantasy is today fitted with all the modern conveniences, and once aboard, you’ll not only see it, but you’ll hear it for yourself. Listen for the “ah” of relaxation at Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the “ahhhhh” of extreme relaxation at Spa Carnival… but don’t miss the “aaaaaaaaah!!” of thrills at Carnival WaterWorks, their onboard water park featuring Twister Waterslide and Splash Park!

It doesn’t end there either. When was the last time you spent an evening at an Egyptian-themed piano bar? Yeah, that’s exactly what we thought… and we know exactly where you can find one.

You’ll find all this — and more — when you join the long list of delighted folks who’ve enjoyed a vacation on Carnival Fantasy
