A late post BUT I finally made it through the busiest two weeks of work…phewf! Flashing back a couple of weeks, we spent Columbus Day weekend in Charleston, South Carolina – a city that has been on my list to visit for a few years. And it definitely did not disappoint!! The architecture, history, warm weather, shopping, & food were just incredible. We had some of the best food over the weekend. We’re lucky to have an inside source who gave us really great recommendations on what to see and where to eat while there. One that stands out is Trattoria Lucca – small corner Italian restaurant with really unbelievable food. No kidding. Everything was amazing. We also visited Kudu Coffee Shop & Craft Beer …two times. I loved it so much on Saturday morning, we went back on Sunday morning. Such a great atmosphere, a big, shaded patio and the iced mocha’s were soo good. We also stumbled upon 82 Queen for lunch. We were wandering the streets and a small alley caught my eye. We ventured down the alley into a courtyard for a traditional Southern brunch – great atmosphere, really great food.
We arrived a week after the major storm but thankfully downtown had dried up. We had a bit of a rainy day on Saturday but the skies cleared for Sunday so we enjoyed a full day of walking around the Historic District..giving me time to take lots of pictures [probably too many] of the beautiful sites.
If you’re visiting, here are some additional recommendations to check out: Stars Rooftop & Grill Room [great rooftop, fun atmosphere] || The Rarebit [Southern] || Coast [Seafood] || The Cocktail Club || Closed for Business
