Southern Charm: A Charleston City Guide
I purchased this bright clutch from Tuckernucker right before our trip, and carried it out every single night! The multi color poms go with just about every outfit I wore.
Finally, I found a phone case that matches my personality and totally fits in with the bright pineapple spirit of Charleston!
Do yourself a favor and purchase this in a travel friendly size so yours doesn’t get confiscated by TSA (like mine did).
WHERE TO EAT
Poogan’s Porch | Poogan’s is great for both brunch and dinner (we had a hard time deciding), and serves traditional Southern cuisine in a gorgeous old, Victorian home. A must visit during your trip to Charleston!
Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit | Start your morning in true Southern fashion…with Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit! You’ll have to wait in line, but we promise…the wait is worth it!!
Carmella’s Dessert Bar | Carmella’s was conveniently located a few blocks away from our hotel, and had a super cute atmosphere and delicious desserts! We split a piece of chocolate peanut butter cake that was to die for!
WHERE TO DRINK
Fuel Charleston | The inside of Fuel is a re-purposed gas station from the 1950’s (so cool), but if you can try and grab a table on their delightful patio area. There you can find outdoor couches, cornhole boards, and twinkle lights which is the perfect accompaniment for their frozen drinks (and queso dip)!
The Bar at HUSK | If you can’t get a reservation at Husk, head next door to their charming carriage house bar! This quaint space offers classic cocktails in a beautiful setting.
WHAT TO DO
The Battery | You can’t visit Charleston without talking a walk along The Battery for the best views of the water and some of the oldest homes in Charleston. Pro tip: Visit The Battery at sunset!
College of Charleston | Walk through the College of Charleston campus before you leave! With Spanish Moss dripping off of the oak trees and gorgeous architecture, walking the campus makes you feel like you’re in a sweet, Southern dream.
Shop on King Street | We popped into Lilly Pulitzer (duh) and Hampden Clothing. It’s also fun shopping in a new city to see what they have to offer!
