Charleston: Part Two

We all slept in and enjoyed the morning - the hotel delivers little breakfast items to your room in a picnic basket.

We did some more walking during the morning - into a few shops and boutiques, to rainbow row and back through Water Front Park.  Lunch was at Poogan's Porch - we split biscuits and gravy as well as mac n cheese for appetizers to all get a taste then each enjoyed our meals too.  We spent the afternoon shopping on King Street.

Derek and I went up to the hotel rooftop to grab a drink and saw Bella Thorne.  Our room had a rooftop too so we all hung out up there enjoying the weather and relaxing.  The hotel, like many in Charleston, offers complimentary wine and cheese hour in the lobby from 5-6 so we took part in that before getting ready for dinner.

For happy hour we went to probably my favorite place in Charleston - the Pavilion Bar at the Market Pavilion Hotel.  The setting is always fun, the views are great and the drinks are tasty.

We spent some time enjoying the rooftop before walking to dinner - we walked everywhere we went in Charleston and while our feet were sore at the end of the day, it was great exercise.

Our last dinner in Charleston was at Magnolia's and it was another great meal.  I had the buttermilk chicken and it was a classic souther dish as well as delicious.  We made stops at Kaminski's and a fudge shop on the way back to the hotel.


  1. I just love how Charleston buildings are always beautiful pastels. Looks like you had an amazing time!

  2. We adored Poogan's Porch (best shrimp & grits I've ever had) and the rooftop views everywhere were just to die for.

  3. I loooove Magnolia's pimento cheese! So delicious! And all of yalls drinks look so yummy!
