Charleston STOLE our hearts. Luke surprised me for our anniversary and planned the whole thing himself (very impressed!)
Here is what we did:
We drove after work on Saturday and got in about 9pm. We dropped off our bags and checked in and headed to dinner at Fleet Landing. It was absolutely DELICIOUS.
On Sunday morning we bought tickets to the Ft. Sumpter Ferry Tour. It was so incredibly cold and we didn’t check the weather when we packed so we were freezing. But it was really cool to see where the Civil War started and its humbling to walk the ground that has so much history. After the tour, we went to brunch at Prohibition. If you are going to Charleston for the weekend, I would recommend making reservations for every meal ahead of time. They get booked up super quick! The food was delicious (as every meal was) After brunch we walked around historic King Street and did some window shopping before our play at Dock Street Theatre. This theatre was built in 1736, isn’t that crazy?! We saw “Shakespeare in Love”.
For dinner we went to Charleston Crab House. We ordered $60 of crab, lobster, and shrimp and it was worth every penny. Give me butter to dip something in and I am a happy girl.
Our last morning we went to Basic Kitchen. It was a simple but yummy breakfast with lots of healthy options which I loved. Luke wasn’t that happy about his tiny burrito (HAHA)
We would totally recommend going to Charleston at some point, especially when its warm out. It is so much fun to walk the historic streets, eat delicious food, and feel like you are back in time. Have you ever been? What is your favorite thing to do?
