J and I just came back from Charleston, SC and it was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken. At times, we felt as though we were suspended in time with the beautiful pre-civil war architecture surrounding us. There’s something to be said about southern charm and hospitality. Everywhere we went, we were greeted with warm smiles and people ready to help and guide newcomers. There was something special around every corner: incredible food, gorgeous scenery, and a slower pace of life than what we’re used to (which we loved!).
If you’re planning a trip, I recommend the Rooftop at the Vendue Inn. This is the best view we had of Charleston with great people, drinks, music and anything else you can want for an after-dinner spot. The newly renovated, Vendue Inn, was fantastic. Our room even had a fireplace, which we enjoyed with the complimentary sparkling wine! Some other places we went to include Poogan’s Porch, High Cotton, the Press, Eli’s table, and the Drawing room. Every spot was absolutely authentic and delicious.
I thought Charleston had a great mix of old and new. It’s clear that a top priority for the city is historical preservation but there are plenty of new galleries, restaurants, boutiques, museums, bakeries and more to peak your interest. Here’s hoping we’ll have other opportunities to return and venture out to places we didn’t get to see, like John’s Island and Sullivan’s Island. Thanks for reading! xo, Tanya
