Our anniversary generally results in a fun, lengthy vaca outside of the country (last year, the year before ). With this year being all about exploring our own backyard (the United States) we decided to do a long weekend somewhere close.
Z has always had an affinity for Charleston and it's quintessential southern charm. Dreaming of seersucker suits and bowites with some low country eats we booked our trip to the Capital of the South and headed on down.
We drank at Prohibition, ate dinner at Husk (which was formerly the #1 restaurant in the country), shopped along King Street, ate the best meal ever at Magnolias (seriously, the best veggie bowl I've ever had), relaxed in Battery Park and along the Waterfront Park. We encountered about 60 bachelor, bachelorette, and wedding parties. We popped into The Spectator Hotel embracing the chic, relaxing ambiance. An afternoon snack and drink at The Roof showed us the best view of the city. We brunched at Macintosh's and enjoyed their bottomless mimosas. We didn't make it to Magnolia Plantation, or any of the outer islands, giving us plenty to do for our next trip there.
What do you think of my trip? Have you been to Charleston and have any other suggestions!?
