Charleston, South Carolina


MAINIMAGEcharelstonsouthcarolina-59.jpg

Charleston, Oh Charleston! We wanted to pack up all the adorable quaint homes with us and bring them home. The food is out of this world, from baked mac and cheese to ginger molasses cookies and of course lots of biscuits. It’s a city for foodies for sure. There is so much history to this town and it’s so fun to see the dates on the little plaques on each house.

Some of them dated back to the 1600's! So crazy! We couldn't go anywhere without having to stop every few minutes to take pictures. Plan on eating more than you should, walking way more than your used too, and wanting to come back year after year! Warning...this is basically a food guide because all you'll want to do it eat when you are here.

Kudu Coffee and Craft Beer - Kudu is a lively coffee shop right off of King Street with a patio that's great for chatting and sitting for awhile.

Bakehouse - They have the best salted caramel brownie in the world.

City Lights Coffee -  City Lights is a little coffee shop right off of King Street and is really small but is so cozy and cute. 

Black Tap Coffee - Iced lavender latte...um yes.

The Gin Joint - My favorite thing about this fun bar is that on the menu they will let you just pick out two different words to tell your waiter...then they surprise you with a drink based on the words you picked.

Candlefish Shop - This place has great candles that are made in house that work as a great take home gift.
