Trip to Charleston

I wanted to include a Part II to our trip to the south. Plus, there was no way I could leave out Charleston.

When we found out we'd be traveling to the Carolinas, I was very set on visiting Charleston. So in between the two-week trip, we took a weekend detour and it did not disappoint. Charleston was so pretty and beyond charming.
Details: 

• VRBO
We rented a VRBO in Charleston (the blue cottage in the last pic). It was so cute and the inside was spacious and modern. 
The only downfall was the location was on the outskirts of town. Still walkable to everything, but not in the greatest area.

• Restaurants
The Daily (by Butcher & Bee): Perfect for breakfast on-the-go. Great coffee, juices, breakfast + pastries
Brown's Court Bakery: Delicious fresh pastries and coffee. Very cute spot.
Five Loaves Cafe: Great casual spot to eat on the north end of King Street
Husk: Great southern food + drinks
Poogan's Porch: Fun southern vibe + food

• Site-Seeing
King's Street shopping: Popular spot for shopping and restaurants
Charleston Farmer's Market: Saturdays, April-December
Charleston Waterfront Park: Pretty views and fun swings to lounge on
Walk along The Battery: Beautiful plantation style homes, historic landmarks

I was also lucky enough to meet up with some lovely bloggers (Jillian, Cait + Meg)! So sad we didn't snap a pic together. Next time!

Definitely visit this beautiful city if you have the chance. I would definitely go back!

Here is Part I: Trip to Nashville in case you missed it.
