Cooler on the River

<p>With many top notch museums and culture venues located in Charleston and just minutes away, you'll still find things in North Charleston too, namely the beauty that engulfs this city and the ease of getting outdoors. Treasure Lake is located in the middle of the city and even has a good beach. There are plenty of running and biking trails, and, of course, the Ashley River provides all sorts of water sport opportunities.</p>

Streetcar Dining

<p>Once in your North Charleston apartment, you'll want to find some local places to eat. Sesame Burgers is a place that gets loads of great reviews by your neighbors. All fresh ingredients and a nice atmosphere. Santi's is considered the best Mexican cuisine (and margaritas) in town while Gennaro's takes the honors for Italian food. Check out The Barbeque Joint for stacked high plates and a huge choice of sauces. You'll be sitting on picnic tables but there's nothing bad about that! For diners, there's a Denny's which is in a streetcar and everyone swears the food is better at this one than any of their others.</p>

The Friendliest Bartenders Around

<p>At night, check out The Mill. It's considered a pub but it has everything including live music. The drinks are good, the people are friendly, and it might be a good place to make some new friends. Madra Rua Irish Pub is also popular for its Irish and English beers and friendly bartenders. Whether at lunch or into the night, it is an excellent choice. Of course, your North Charleston apartment will be close to a nice little neighborhood place or there are always choices down in Charleston if you feel like really getting out!</p>
