Our lives are pretty hectic. Every now and then my husband and I try to get away, just for a little while. When we were living in Maryland, we discovered that we really enjoyed going to Bed and Breakfast Inns - especially those that are close to downtown historic areas, with lots of great restaurants and antique shoppes. (Yah, me! I married a guy who enjoys antique shopping.) We visited some great inns in Frederick, Maryland, Fredericksburg, Va, and Lititz, PA. Since we've moved home, we've really enjoyed The Carriage House in Aiken, SC - and just this weekend, we visited Veranda on Main in Abbeville, SC.
Abbeville has a ton of history (The Confederacy both was born and died here.) and they also have an Opera House with an interesting history and a beautiful old Episcopal church. We're Episcopalians, so we always try to tour these churches when we find them. They're almost always very old and very beautiful, with some fascinating architecture.
Here are some pictures we took in Abbeville. Check it out if you're ever in the area, definitely worth the trip. Especially Veranda on Main, Thom and Linda are wonderful hosts and you'll feel right at home.
