Mini-Moon Guide to Charleston
July 2, 2014
Hi lovelies! Caitlin from Style Within Reach here. Today I'm sharing all my favorite spots in Charleston, South Carolina and showing you how to plan the perfect mini-moon (or even honeymoon!) in this charming locale. My guy and I recently spent a long weekend in the Holy City to relax in the months leading up to our Big Day and it was absolute bliss.
STAY | If you're looking for a splurge the Zero George Street hotel is the spot to be at. Lynn Easton of Easton Events is the proprietor and she's made sure every little detail is picture perfect - I may have gone Instagram crazy during my stay! It's nestled on a quiet street downtown and is walking distance from many of the sites, restaurants and shopping. We were big fans of their breakfast, picturesque courtyards, showers and wine + cheese hour! It's utterly romantic, historic and would make a great homebase for a Charleston honeymoon. Other spots to check out: Charleston Place and Vendue Inn.
EAT + DRINK | Charleston is a food lover's dream. Some of our favorite date spots to dine are HUSK, Bowen's Island for fresh seafood, Butcher & Bee for a takeaway lunch, The Gin Joint for cocktails, Sugar Bakeshop for cupcakes.
ART + CULTURE | There is a bustling art scene in Charleston - check out many of the galleries in the French Quarter or set up a time to drop by Redux Contemporary Art Center to check out new work by Lulie Wallace + Teil Duncan. Stop by Stems for fresh flowers and to check out frequent art exhibits. Take a dip in the pool at Mixson Bath & Racquet Club and have lunch at their market.
DO | Explore the historic downtown area, hit the beach (Sullivan's Island is our favorite - and stop by The Obstinate Daughter for oysters and bubbly after), take a sunset sailboat tour, rent bikes or kayaks, take a walk over the iconic Ravenel Bridget, pick up picnic essentials at Caviar + Bananas and have dinner on the waterfront park. And most of all, enjoy every minute with your sweetie. Happy Honeymooning!
