|Wandering the historic district and stopping to smell the roses|
We saw a great deal on JetBlue and decided to go in mid-September before school started. It was still pretty hot when we went, but usually fall is a great time to visit the South since the humidity and heat are gone.
Charleston's got a food scene, history, beauty, nice weather much of the year and it's a very cute, sweet city. It was great with the kids. Highly recommend!
Here's our photo review...
Arthur Ravenel Bridge: geometric and stunning!
|Love seeing old courtyards. Feels tres European|
|Super cute inn that we stayed at one night. It was right in the middle of the historic district and next to Husk|
|Courtyard of the Elliott House Inn, where we stayed one night|
|Our Elliott House Inn room looked out at Husk. No lines yet...run!|
|Husk was THE restaurant I wanted to try in Charleston. Shrimp and Grits, bacony cornbread, local IPA...all thumbs up|
|Still don't know how to use the joggling board. This one was at Husk, but they're all over town|
|Riding the free trolley to get the lay of the land in the historic district|
|Jumping around Charleston's Waterfront Park|
|Strolling around here makes you want a sweet tea|
|The marshes of Charleston's waterfront|
|Love that the water features all encourage you to wade in|
Black Tap Coffee right outside the historic district...got that New York vibe going on
|The airbnb we rented had a fenced-in backyard and a pecan tree|
|This was a good airbnb house!|
Here's where we stayed for our other two nights in Charleston. It was nice to stay in the historic district as well as in the cute Brooklyn-ish area where the airbnb house was.
|Pecans from the pecan tree|
|Leon's was great for lunch!|
|Sugar Bakery. Yas, queen.|
|Indigo & Cotton men's store. Are we in New York?|
|Tiny scene of independent shops, but you can see it's growing|
|Another joggling board. How do you use this thing?|
|Hominy Grill...Oh, yes.|
|How this New Yorker thinks you're supposed to eat hush puppies|
|Tried to take it on the plane home, but was denied. Oh, well.|
|Reminds me of the summer camp I went to in Asheville, North Carolina|
|Charleston: Not exactly Compton|
