48 Hours in Charleston

My boyfriend and I went to Savannah, GA for Christmas two years ago, and absolutely fell in love with the city. The stunning old buildings and amazing stories that went along with them were truly eye-opening. When I heard Charleston, SC was a sister city and was even prettier than Savannah, I knew I had to go. We finally had the time to take off so we packed our bags and spent the weekend. It is about a 4 hour drive from where we live in Florida, so it was the perfect distance for a 48 hour trip. We picked the most beautiful-est weekend to go too, the weather was great! We arrived in Charleston around dinner Friday night, so we grabbed some food and headed to our condo to get some rest for some exploring the next day.


Downtown Charleston is amazing. There is so much to do, and so much to see. The buildings are colorful, bright, and so beautiful. We started off our morning at Charleston Crab House with some mimosas (for the ladies) and beers (for the guys) and heavy appetizers such as Crispy Calamari, Southern Fried Green Tomatoes, Crab Cakes, and Bacon Stuffed Shrimp. (Sorry, I have no photos to share of the “crab-a-tizers”.) After we fueled up, we started exploring.

After a long day of walking around, we returned to the condo and ate pizza (nom nom). The next day we visited the Magnolia Plantation & Gardens which was gorgeous. Along with the tour of the plantation and gardens, they had a maze and a petting zoo. (My camera died, so these photos are from my handy-dandy iPhone.) 😛


I seriously cannot wait to go back to Charleston, the overall ambience of the city is truly breathtaking. Such a romantic place to hang out for the weekend. I am planning a trip during the summer so we can hit up Folly Beach while enjoying the city as well. It is only a few miles away from downtown.

Anyone have any places they love in Charleston? I would love to hear all about your experiences. 🙂
