Southern Charm

There are few places in this world that speak to my soul quite like the coastal South. It all started with a road trip my husband I took down to Hilton Head back in 2016, where we made stops in Charleston & Savannah (among many other places along the way). Between the colorful architecture, decadent dining and slow pace of life, I was hooked. While New Orleans will always hold the biggest place in my heart (and stomach!) in regards to Southern cities I've had the pleasure of visiting, Charleston is a very close second.

With endless restaurants, rooftop bars, high-end boutiques and charming streets to stroll down, it remains a place I will continue to visit over and over again! Here, I've gathered my favorite spots for you as a quick guide to Charleston!


Breakfast:

Lunch:

  • 167 Raw (There is no shortage of similarities between Charleston & Nantucket, and the 167 Raw restaurant located on King St. is every bit as cool and delicious as you'd hope it would be)

  • Leon's Oyster Shop (Relaxed joint serving oysters, Southern-style seafood, frozen drinks & fried chicken in a laidback space with a great ambience and patio)

Dinner:

  • Husk (The most magical dining experience, this spot features an ever-changing menu of locally sourced Southern dishes served in a restored Victorian-era home)

Activities:

  • Stroll the Streets (Rainbow Row is a must-see, but Tradd Street is equally beautiful)

  • Rooftop Hop (The Rooftop Bar at the Vendue or the Citrus Club at the Dewberry)

  • Get Shoppin' (There is no shortage of charming boutiques explore in Charleston, so make a morning of it and pop into every shop along King Street)

Beaches:

  • Folly Beach (Located about a 20-minute drive from Charleston, this sleepy surf town is the perfect place to unwind from the city and enjoy a frozen cocktail (or two!).
