Charleston, South Carolina

For our 3rd Anniversary, Kevin and I took an incredible week vacation spending time in four states: Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. I am going through all the highlights this week. Enjoy!

After spending just two days in Charleston, SC, I am in love. Two days was not enough to try all we wanted, but it was a nice taste! I have caught myself day dreaming about what it would like to be to live Low Country Life. The homes are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. They are historic dripping with charm and elegance.

Here are 5 things you must do if you are in Charleston and the highlights from our trip:

one: Eat
We were some well fed people. We ate dinner one night at Fleet Landing. It is truly waterfront (in Waterfront Park...see below) so you need to eat outside and it wasn't outrageously expensive. It has it's own free parking lot too! It looks like it is in an abandoned warehouse but the inside is nicer I promise.

We also ate at Magnolias which was a beautiful restaurant in every sense of the word. The ambiance, service, food, it is all really great!

We didn't get to try Hominy Grill which has The Big Nasty. Apparently people have moved to Charleston just for that. Other restaurants that we didn't try but will save for next time: Fig, Husk, Taco Boy, Toast, and Fulton Five.

Btw, follow me on Yelp {here}

two: The Battery
The park, the architecture of the homes, the weather...it is all so beautiful! At the end of this post, the word beautiful won't mean anything because I have said it so much--but I promise I mean it! It is all perfect to walk off all that food too!

three: Rainbow Row
We enjoyed taking long walks along Rainbow Row. It is amazing that Rainbow Row used be the slums. The pastel houses are so well maintained and well done that it looks great!

four: Waterfront Park
The cool breeze of the water and the gorgeous architecture make for an enjoyable evening walk.

five: Magnolia Plantation
It was a humid day for this desert girl, but the plantation grounds were just so beautiful. I got to see lots of landscape that I don't normally see. I also saw some wildlife that I have never seen. Woah!

Seriously, if you haven't been to Charleston, I recommend it! 
Have you been to Charleston?
What is your favorite thing to do there?


  1. I have been to Charleston, was there for a week as a patient at MUSC, so I got to do things but not be as active as I would be now, but from what we did do made me love it so much that I can't wait to get back one day. We went to the market in the middle of the town, ate at the crab house on the Ashley River, went to Folly Beach, saw some plantations. I get my fix nowadays until I go back by watching Southern Charm :)

  2. That picture of the alligator with his mouth wide open is just the best! He looks so fierce. Glad you guys had such a cool trip!

  3. Charleston is one of my favorite places in the entire world! I am so excited that you got to visit and that you had fun. :)

  4. We go to Charleston pretty frequently as we have friends that live there and we live in Raleigh, NC. We also went last year for our 2nd anniversary and went scuba diving. Next time you're there, go eat at Edmund's Oast. It's in North Charleston so take a cab, but it's so amazing. They've got great craft cocktails and some amazing food.


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
