Charleston, South Carolina - Home Away From Home

We had such a great time in Charleston!  It was my birthday and we decided to get away from Atlanta for the weekend by taking a road trip to Charleston, South Carolina.  It just so happens that one of my best friends lives there and they were happy to show us all they could of the town in 2.5 days!
We spent Friday evening walking the cobblestone streets of downtown while stopping here and there to enjoy some of the historic eateries.
We started at the Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar where we enjoyed fantastic drinks & the best seafood

We decided to stop by The Rooftop @ The Vendue Inn

We also stopped at Henry's for more rooftop fun!

What a night! We saw an open market that sold hand crafted items, like art, jewelry and soap. It ended with a late night walk down Charleston's Water Front Pier.

On Saturday we really enjoyed ourselves at Isle of Palms Beach.  

It was really cool to have lunch at Red's Ice House.  Even though the waitress treated us like aliens from outerspace, the food and the views were great!

 A few hours and a few tan lines later we headed over to Sullivan's Island for a little history lesson.

All in all I found Charleston to be a fantastic getaway.  Full of culture, good food and with a beach.  You cant beat it.  We will definitely return and next time we will stay longer because we know there is so much more to see!

Are any of my readers from Charleston?

Thanks for reading!
