Eat, See, & Do: Charleston Edition

Eat See Do SC

Happy Thursday friends! If you haven’t checked out my Instagram (what are you waiting for?) then you probably don’t know that we spent four days on the road last weekend! We left early Thursday and drove to Charleston, South Carolina. A co-worker and good friend was getting married on Sullivan’s Island on Friday so we wanted to make a mini getaway out of the trip and drove, since you know that’s how we travel 99% of the time!

I wanted to give a brief overview of the things we did while we were there before diving into some specific posts on places and things we did. Admittedly we only had a day and a half in Charleston to explore but I think we did a pretty good job of it!

Eat/Drink

Craftsmen Kitchen & Taphouse

This was the first stop we made when we arrived in Charleston after checking into our hotel in Mount Pleasant. The way to my man’s heart is local beer so Craftsmen Kitchen and Taproom sounded great and it wasn’t too far from the meeting place for our ghost tour. I had the burger, which was 75% chuck and 25% bacon. It was delicious!

Poogans Porch

Poogan’s Porch was on my list to try for breakfast but after our ghost tour when we learned how haunted it is, it moved quickly to the top of the list. While we didn’t experience any paranormal activity during our brunch on Saturday we did devour some delicious grub and the ambiance was incredible.

Frothy Beard

Frothy Beard was probably one of our favorite stops on the trip! It was the last place we went before we started the trek home and we loved it. The artwork, the vibe, the food was perfection.

Charles Towne Fermentory

We visited Charles Ton Fermentory because I saw a few snaps of murals nearby, but we had driven 25 minutes out of our way so we decided to stop and grab a beer and sit outside before heading to our next stop.

Taco Boy

We loved Taco Boy! Such a fun and unique setting and we enjoyed the option to order single tacos and try out a bunch of flavors.

Sullivans Island

The wedding we were in Charleston for took place at Sullivan’s Island. We loved the chance to leave the city and head to the beach and the houses were stunning. We could definitely go back and hang on the island for a few days!

Pineapple Fountain

I’d seen the pineapple fountain in so many pictures but had no idea where it was! When we walked along the water to check out the view of Fort Sumter it was right behind us so we had to take a photo with it.

Angel Oak Tree

I have an entire post dedicated to this excursion so keep an eye out for it next week!

Historic Downtown Charleston

We had such a good time just walking around looking at the gorgeous homes and brightly colored buildings. We also made the mistake of looking up how much the homes cost on Zillow…we won’t be living in downtown Charleston anytime soon!

Do

Ghost Tour

Thankfully Chris understands my obsession with things that go bump in the night and is always down to do a ghost tour each time we visit a haunted/historic city. The ghost tour was good and we loved that there were two Baltimore references in the tour as well!

Wall Crawl

I’m a street art lover and historic Charleston isn’t exactly offering up the brightly colored murals that can be found in D.C or Atlanta. However, we did find three areas where the art was abundant and AWESOME. The post on those places and the murals will be up next week!

Have you been to Charleston? What should we add to our list for next time?

    This is such a good list! I’m so glad you loved Charleston. Next time you’re here, you should definitely check out a couple more breweries (my favorites right now are the Fermentory that you visited and Low Tide Brewery) or take a drive out to Kiawah!
