Charleston Trip Recap

A few weeks ago, I headed down to Charleston for a long weekend with family. We were going down to celebrate my second cousins 1st birthday. It's crazy how time flies! I absolutely love going to Charleston and it's so nice that I have family to stay with when we go down there. Charleston is the most adorable city with great restaurants, shopping and night life. There is so much to do, I don't think i'll ever try enough places to give you a thoroughly researched city guide. Instead, I figured that I would share with you the fun places we went to while we were down there. If you ever need any advice or recommendations, don't hesitate to reach out to me!

This ecofriendly nail salon is boosting with aesthetic appeal. With tropical wallpapered walls, swinging chairs and nail art, this is a must visit if you are in Charleston and need your nails done. My gel manicure also lasted about 3-4 weeks, which is AMAZING!

Charleston Farmer's Market
This is one of my favorite farmer's markets to go to! It is packed with vendors and great items all from the Charleston area. You can get Rewined candles from here for less than what they sell for in boutiques. They also have food trucks you can grab snacks from as you walk around.

King Street
If you want to get in some shopping, King Street is where you need to go. They have a ton of retail stores and adorable boutiques. Some boutiques will be pricey, so if you're looking to save some money, head to the retail chains. However, some of the boutiques do have good sale sections!

Sullivan's Island 
If you are looking for some sun, Charleston has a lot of beached to choose from. One of my favorites is Sullivan's Island. It is calm and more family oriented, so if you are looking to have a good time try out Foley Beach instead. Sullivan's has a ton of great restaurants, but this time we just grabbed salads from Middle Street Market and took them to the beach. If you want something grab and go, I highly recommend for a healthy option!

Basic Kitchen
For lunch one day, we went to Basic Kitchen. It is a trendy new spot filled with plants and natural light. The bar area is super cute too with surfboards and rattan light fixtures. They also have so many healthy food options if you're trying to eat clean. 

For lunch, we got the watermelon and feta salad, fish tacos, the paleo bowl and surfer's delight. They were all delicious! The service was a little slow though. However, I would probably go back again!

Tavern & Table 
For dinner one night, we went to Tavern & Table at Shem Creek. Every time we go down to Charleston, we always eat here at least once. Shem Creek is such a fun spot packed with restaurants and bars. It also has great views of the creek. Highly recommend grabbing a drink here before dinner one night!

The Harbinger
Before we hit the road to go home, we grabbed coffee from The Harbinger. This was one of the most adorable spots we stopped at. It was filled with plants, breakfast options and even a great outdoor porch. Just look at those string lights! I definitely want to come back here next time i'm in town and grab some food.
