Hi BGs! So, I was just in the beautiful and historic city of Charleston. It’s a place where something caught my attention at every corner I turned!

Charleston is a city that is best explored on foot because you just might miss out on some scenic site-seeing if you move too fast. Aside from it’s impeccable beauty and hospitality, there’s more good news for all my BGs that LOVE warm weather!

In my time there it was SUPER hot so if you will be traveling in the summer time, load up on hats, sunglasses and SPF! It’s the perfect destination to explore and also channel your inner summer-time fashionista, trust me!

There are mainly two types of activities that you indulge in when you’re on vacation- adventure and eating! So before I provide a list of places to see, let’s just talk about some restaurants I recommend eating at:

  • Toast
  • Broken Egg Cafe
  • Five Loaves
  • Persimmon
  • Fuel
  • Monza
  • Dessert at Kaminsky’s
  • Cafe Meledy
  • Black Tap Coffee
  • Sugar Bakeshop
  • Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream
  • Mellow Mushroom (Pizza)
