3. The Bridge at Magnolia Plantation

The Magnolia Plantation is one of the oldest plantations in America and like most of Charleston, you can’t help but feel mesmerised by the charm of this place. On this plantation is also a museum and plenty of land for you to wander through.

The most epic shot here however, is on the Long Bridge which dates back to the 1840s. Don’t forget to capture the bridge’s reflection in the water in your snap!

4. Folly Beach Pier

Folly Beach is the most beautiful beach in Charleston and is much like LA’s Santa Monica Pier minus all the hoopla. There are lots of great photos you can take here but if you head below the pier, that is where the best pictures are.

As the sun begins to set, make your way below the pier for some the best pier sunset shots ever!

5. Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park

Waterfront Park is a park in Charleston that boasts a fantastic fountain in the shape of a pineapple! Here, people come to make wishes and toss a penny or two into the fountain.

The structure and design of this fountain is too cool not to capture for your ‘Gram!

6. The Angel Oak Tree

A Charleston treasure that is hauntingly beautiful is the Angel Oak Tree. This oak tree is the largest and oldest in America and is over 400 years old and is 65 feet tall!

Because it is so tall and so wide, you’ll have to stand plenty far back to get all of it in one shot for your feed.

7. Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge

The Arthur Ravenel Bridge is a modern suspension bridge that is ripe for some great pics. A fair warning as it can get a bit windy on this bridge so be sure to capture your shots safely here.

Park your car near Patriots Point and hop onto the bridge to take your shots.
