Charleston

IMG_0698

It’s no secret that I love Charleston. In fact, when I go back to Mississippi, half the people say: “aren’t y’all in Charleston?” haha Since I do visit so frequently I thought it would be fun to put together a list of my favorite things to do in this bright and colorful city:

  1. Free parking at the Battery I still can’t get over how the number one touristy place in the city is where free parking is, but it is – right next to the water. Every time I’ve visited I leave my car there all weekend. No tickets, no fees, no nothin’
  2. Coffee and a walk Another basically free thing: walking from the battery to Chalmers street. Y’all – this is my favorite thing to do by a mile. I LOVE getting coffee in the morning and strolling through the streets starting at the Battery and walking back to Mollie’s house (which is on Chalmers). Seeing the manicured gardens and porches of these beautiful homes is like walking through a dream. It’s breathtaking. I also really enjoy this because it’s absolutely silent. It’s weird but you can literally hear a pin drop or whisper to whoever you are walking with and they can hear you. It’s magical. To be in such a big city with so many people but feel like you are alone walking through a secret garden is pretty neat. The views with all the flower boxes, colored buildings, and cobblestone streets are incredible.
  3. Brunch at Poogen’s Porch requesting a table in the back room or on the back deck is a must. It’s so much brighter back there and a different atmosphere than the front. I know everybody raves about Husk, but between you and me I like Poogens Porch better. They are basically right next door to each other. If there’s a wait you can sneak into the Husk bar which is completely separate from the restaurant and wait for Poogen’s to text you. I love how restaurants do that these days #2016 #thankYou
  4. King Street – enough said. A stroll down this street could fill an entire afternoon. There are so many home shops and clothing shops (my favorite is Cynthia Rowley) to meander in and out of. It’s the equivalent of Bourbon Street in New Orleans.. except you go in and out of shops that smell divine rather than bars that smell terrible.
  5. walking the bridge – ok I really can’t put this on here because I’ve never done it, BUT I have heard it’s really cool and beautiful. If you follow me on snap (LC_Steele) you know that Mollie signed us up for the 10K run across the bridge – insert emoji of the girl crossing her arms in an ‘X’ – thank goodness it was thundering and lightening at 6:30 a.m. the next morning and we stayed in bed. That was a close one.
  6. Dog watch – there are so. many. dogs. in this city … you know I love it. I’m like a cat lady, but with dogs. I think I could adopt 10 more and be perfectly happy with it. Since the weather is usually spot on in Charleston, people are usually out walking their dogs.
  7. The Bakehouse Bakery Cafe – when I’m heading out of town and don’t have time for a full on brunch, I love to stop at the Bakehouse Bakery Cafe to pick up a scone and coffee before hitting the road. It’s the same bakery that Blake Lively used for her wedding and I mean…. Gossip girl is my show so anything Serena Vanderwoodsen does I’m pretty much a fan of and want to copy. haha
