Last week MJD and I took a quick trip down to Charleston. There were a number of reasons to visit- first, we were celebrating my birthday, secondly, two of our close friends were getting married in Kiawah about 45 minutes away and third, I’d been dying to go to Charleston ever since I saw my first picture of the signature window boxes and pastel homes! Well, Charleston certainly lived up to the reputation and was absolutely charming. The homes were beautiful, the waterfront relaxing and the food was delish too! Our visit was only a quick two days (with one day of intense rain!), but we got the chance to see so much. It’s a great spot for a weekend or long weekend trip for Bostonians- stay tuned for my travel guide with what to do, where to eat and where to stay soon!
