About the location

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Charleston. What is there not to love?! It is such a cool town! The energy is incredible. Charleston is super bike-able. Lots of history, even for non-history buffs like me. Amazing restaurants. Beaches nearby - there is so much to do! It's a great trip to take solo, with friends, as a couple or with kids in tow.

You can easily stay downtown or head to one of the beautiful beaches!

This Guide has you covered. Read on below for more details.

Guide Highlights

The FOOD! I have SO many pages of food recs in this Guide. Sorry...not sorry!

Amazing amazing amazing food. From the Farmer's Market to the cute little cafes and incredible dinners. Our tummies were very happy.

Oyster Point Walking Tour

We loved this tour. It was the first thing we did when we arrived - to get the lay of the land! Plus, there is so much history.

Guide Summary

I've included amazing places to stay. We tend to enjoy more boutique-style hotels, but we've included all of the options we considered. And, even mention a few rental properties.

If you appreciate good food, this is your Guide!! It's loaded! But, I've also helped you narrow it down with my personal faves.

Want to explore? We've included our favorite things to do, hidden gems & the best places to take photos, current events! Also, ideas for a girls' getaway.

This guide is great for anyone who is up for seeing & doing it all, but also making time for a cocktail and some relaxation on a beach or one of the beautiful parks!

This is your blueprint…we spent days scouring the web so you don't have to! You can pick & choose to create a memorable adventure of your own!

  • Can I get a wristband please? Because this is ALL Inclusive!

    Mollie’s guide is a thorough breakdown of all the charm Charleston has to offer. She hits the main sites but also crafts really fun ideas for the family and lays out all kinds of activities for everyone. Her food recommendations are spot on and I’d have to say her hotel descriptions left me completely unsurprised upon arrival - I felt like a regular visitor walking in! Thanks Mollie!
