Spring Break in Charleston, SC

I guess you could say I love Charleston, SC. 
This past weekend, I went to Charleston for the second time in two years, and it's not super close to Atlanta. Last year, I went as my graduation trip with my family and had a really good time! And this year, I went with my boyfriend who has family in Charleston - also a really great time :)

Besides the beautiful southern homes, I also love everything about the area (beaches/islands, good food, warm weather, city, college campuses, history, southern hospitality, shopping, and did I mention good food?). It's just a really fun city, no matter what your interests or your age.

It did get a little chilly during the weekend, but we still spent a good bit of time walking around downtown. I love The Battery - a huge body of water with a view of bridges, homes, and downtown Charleston.

We also had dinner at one of Charleston's most famous restaurants, Husk

I ordered a salad appetizer and a catfish dish for my meal, it was pretty good! Their menu changes twice, daily. So it's always a different eating experience. I want to try lunch at Husk next time we go.

And, be sure to check out the preserves cabinet (upstairs) when you go to Husk. I want one of these in my house!

On Saturday, we went to the beach at Isle of Palms, and it was so pretty! 

Our time on the beach was relaxing, and a much needed break from the work I do in Atlanta.

We had lunch by the marina, yum! And, I had this Arnold Palmer Cocktail (Sweet Tea Vodka + lemonade), can't wait to make this over the summer!

The salmon & grits I had for lunch at the marina was a definite highlight of the trip!

So, overall it was a very special & much-needed weekend and the best way to end my Spring Break. It's been understandably difficult to adjust back into school/work mode, but I'm getting there. I'm heading to another state next weekend, very excited!

Have you been to Charleston? Or, where are you going this spring/summer?


  1. This is a very beautiful place, it reminds me of the island. I wish I could say the same thing about the weather here in NY, spring break was about 2 weeks ago but we are still having 15 degrees weathers and chances of snow every couples of days, so I can't really say much about enjoying spring. I'm glad you enjoy your time there :)

  2. I haven't been in a few years
