Our trip to Charleston!
When we visited Charleston 2 years ago for the Rise Business Conference we knew we’d be back. Very soon. We quickly planned a trip to show our husbands [Derek and Trevor] this incredible city. Then Covid happened. We pushed our plans back a year and visited in late April 2021. It was worth the wait. The food, the atmosphere, the hospitality, the history, the scenery — it’s all top notch and quite frankly, unbelievable. We hope you enjoy this blog post highlighting our stay, food, activities and recommendations.
After our carriage ride we headed to lunch at Magnolias. It was a great place for a late lunch. They offer a large menu, and the salads were amazing. We made reservations a few days earlier. After lunch we walked up the street and stopped in at Mac’s Place. Mac’s Place reminded me of a Wisconsin dive bar— which isn’t a bad thing. Good drinks and live music!
For brunch we made a quick stop at Poogans Porch — they had a nice mix of breakfast and lunch offerings on the menu, overall very good food. It was very busy so the service was a little slow, but worth it. We booked about 3 days in advance, reservations are needed.
**We also went to Revival for dinner, the menu was very limited and we wouldn’t necessarily recommend for food. The rooftop bar was nice to have drinks, but super packed being it was a Friday. But, we loved the vibe and recommend giving the rooftop a try on a beautiful evening. We also tried to get into Miller’s All day, but it was 1.5 hour wait— they don’t accept reservations. [So many of you recommended that spot, go early if you want to try it.]
