History Museum
“If you have an interest in unique Charleston history, you'll have to visit the Charleston Museum. This city has so many stories it's difficult to choose just one...but I'm feeling the call of the ocean... James Island/Folly Beach is the area where native New Yorkers George and Ira Gershwin worked on the music and lyrics for the play “Porgy and Bess”. Remember the song “Summertime”? Eighty-five years ago, George Gershwin, the ultimate urbanite, “went native”—shirtless, shaveless, and shoeless—on Folly, immersing himself in the lore and rhythms of the place to create the score for Porgy and Bess, an American operatic masterpiece. In 1926, Gershwin had stumbled on Dubose Heyward’s story, Porgy, of a goat cart beggar who finds love and loss. After considering an opera based on the medieval Jewish legend of the malicious spirit dybbuk or a “melting pot” story based in New York City, he knew instantly Porgy was it. In June 1934, Gershwin arrived for a six-week stay. Folly then was a remote, one telephone, shack-lined shore where electricity and ice were considered luxuries. On a rented piano, Gershwin plucked notes as if divining them from the atmosphere, following up the tune he had created for Heyward’s lyric, “Summertime and the livin’ is easy.” The end result has been heard by millions. The Gershwin-Heyward opera reprises that momentous season at Folly and will be revived this September, 2019 with a production at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. You can search the Charleston Museum, Porgy and Bess to read about the real "Porgy".”

Movie Theater
“When the weather isn't beach and downtown friendly, we will go to the movies a Town Center in Mt. Pleasant. Town Center is also a beautiful shopping area with restaurants. It is not a mall which is a good thing in our opinion!”

Museum
“n 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted live oak trees, arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. This spectacular approach to his home symbolizes southern heritage and will take root in your memory for many years to come. It would take two centuries for the massive, moss-draped branches to meet overhead, forming today’s natural corridor and a scene that NBC Daytime television says is “a must see stop on any trip to Charleston, S.C.””
