Weekend in Charleston
It's no secret I am smitten with Charleston. There is something about the lowcountry that makes my heart sing. The marsh sunsets, cobblestone streets, pastel color houses, the food, & of course the people... it's my happy place. With so many people headed to Charleston this weekend for SEWE I thought it was the perfect time to post my favorites spots in the lowcounty. Here are my go to weekend places in the Holy City!
WHERE TO STAY | I'm a huge fan of Air BnB. There is no better way to see a whole new side of a city than being with locals. Not only are there adorable hidden gems downtown Charleston, but you can also stay in the marina... on a boat! Here are a few of my favorites on Air BnB.
WHERE TO EAT | Charleston is a total foodie town so narrowing down where to eat was super difficult, but if you pick any of these you won't be disappointed!
Lewis Barbeque The brisket & ribs are to die for!
Edmond's Oast If you love charcuterie this is the place for you!
Lowcountry Bistro This is our go to spot for brunch! Everything is made from scratch with local products!
Poogan's Porch Amazing brunch spot! Try and sit on one of the porches if you can!
Juliet This is the perfect spot for a simple date night or a casual meet up with friends. The drinks are great & the meatballs are delicious!
Tavern & Table My favorite spot if you want to eat with a view of the water.
Bowen's Island Wanting a local lowcountry vibe? No other place than Bowen's! Watch the sunset & shuck some oysters!
Callie's Hot Little Biscuits If you blink you'll miss this little spot, but don't worry because there is no way you'll miss the amazing smells! Perfect casual breakfast spot!
WHERE TO DRINK | Charleston loves a good cocktail as much as they love a cold PBR. Here are my favorite spots to grab a drink!
The Belmont My FAVORITE bar in Charleston! The Laughing Countess (winter drink) is the best! Grab a seat at the bar to watch the masters at work or cuddle up on the benches with friends & enjoy the black & white movie playing.
The Gin Joint Order a Bartender's Choice If you can snag a seat at the bar do it because these mixologists are impressive to watch in this small space.
The Living Room at the Dewberry is one of our favorite new spots! The decor is something you dream of & the drinks are amazing!
Edmond's Oast Try a Yes Way Rose or the PB&J beer... you read right it's weird & amazing all at once! Edmond's also just opened a brewery down the road from the restaurant that has anamazing vibe!
Red's Ice House The place to day drink & watch the sunset on warm days! Dogs are welcome & dolphins are always playing in Shem Creek.
WHAT TO DO | Charleston always has something going on. From SEWE to Fashion Week from Fort Sumter to Middleton Place there is just so much to see while in town!
Fourteen & East Shameless plug! If you're in town swing by & see me!!
Holy Spokes The best way to get around downtown is hopping on a bike & taking in the scenery! With Holy Spokes you can rent a bike for the day or for an hour!
The Battery Want to see all the gorgeous colorful houses? Grab some coffee & head down to White Point Gardens. Then stroll along Meeting St. & Church St. You won't be disappointed!
Middleton Place There are several plantations you can visit while in Charleston, but Middleton Place is by far my favorite!
Folly Beach The BEST beach in Charleston! Everyone has their favorite, but Folly has a more local, laid back vibe. Don't forget to take a trip out to Morris Island Lighthouse!
The Old Village Head over to Mount Pleasant & walk through The Old Village & pick out your favorite house. Stop in at the Pitt Street Pharmacy for a shake then stroll down the old Pitt Street Bridge & watch the sunset!
Catamaran Ride Want to get out on the water? Hitch a ride on the Palmetto Breeze! See Charleston from the water & sip on some margaritas! Once you're back at the dock then grab dinner on Shem Creek!
What are some of your favorite things to do in Charleston? I love hearing how others spend their time in town!
