Sunsets & Charleston Travel Guide
My mama and I had the best getaway to Charleston last week! It is the most charming city full of color, life & of course sweet southern hospitality.
We stayed at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina. The resort was STUNNING! Our room was huge and had such a luxurious, beach feel. I was so obsessed with the resort I made a separate post to share the photos with y’all. Check it out here :) The resort had a bunch of complimentary features included in your stay like the water taxi to downtown, yoga classes on the beach, smores roasting and dessert daily by the pool, volleyball tournaments, and more!
Each day we went to get breakfast at a cute coffee shop or cafe and had a late dinner. I have some friends who visit frequently and they gave us the best recommendations that I want to share with y’all! My two favorite coffee spots were Rise Coffee and Sugar Bakeshop. For lunch we tried The Obstinate Daughter and the food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant couldn’t be cuter! Our waitress was from Washington and knew right where we lived back there too. We got dinner at the resort restaurant one night called the Fish House and then we also went to Rue De Jean (kinda fancy). If you like seafood you’ll have to try their popular places downtown. My mama doesn’t like it so we chose other spots but Charleston is known for their amazing, fresh seafood!
A couple activities we were going to do but ran out of time was bike riding and the Schooner sunset cruise. Next time I go I’ll make sure to do this because it would be so cool to bike around downtown and the beaches. The Schooner sailboat was highly recommended and they said you see dolphins every night! It was only $55 a person for a two hour sunset sail cruise, so not bad! My mama and I got carried away by the gorgeous resort and laid out most of the time and took a trip to Sullivan Island. Since our stay consisted of eating and laying by the water… I made a list of the most recommended places by friends in case you plan on visiting and want some cool spots!
