Mom and I are heading to Charleston, South Carolina for a four-day getaway this weekend. It’s my official 30th birthday present. Pretty awesome since my 21st birthday present was a belt from TJMaxx. Not that I’m complaining (and I’ll save Mom the trouble – “You were in London for the semester. That was your present!”).
This will be Mom’s first trip to Charleston, my third. If you’ve ever been, though, you know it’s a lovely city that never gets old. I think we are equally excited to explore a little, to relax a lot and to take in the Southern charm.
The last time I was there was more than four years ago. So while I know to look for some good shrimp and grits (can’t get enough), a tree covered in Spanish moss and friendly Southerners, I love hearing about new places to eat, things to do and spots for an afternoon cocktail.
Suggestions for not to miss spots? I’d love to hear them!
