I’m Back From Charleston!

Hey y’all! Hope you all had a delicious Thanksgiving! I went down to Charleston, South Carolina for the holiday week. I absolutely devoured their fabulous food scene and managed to check out some of their top eateries and bars.

I stared off with a great Italian dinner and cocktails. My Historic District hotel was located right off upper King which is lined with an abundance of bars and restaurants.

I enjoyed a wonderful brunch, then took an informative tour of lovely Charleston before enjoying a couple rooftop brews.

I had some solid Texas-style barbecue for lunch and soft pillowy gnocchi for dinner. Afterwards, it was amazing craft cocktails and entertainment for Thanksgiving Eve.

Thanksgiving Day started off with a tasty Southern lunch. Dinner was thoroughly enjoyed at High Cotton where I sat at The Notebook table and indulged in some yummy local oysters, She Crab Soup, a nice Turkey dinner, roasted Prime Rib, and Pecan Pie. So good!

I was stuffed from the first couple days, but couldn’t stop there. I enjoyed more Southern dishes at a popular breakfast spot, checked out one of the oldest museums in the United States, then had an incredible seafood lunch at 167 Raw.

For my final night in Charleston, I booked a seat at McCrady’s tasting room where I enjoyed 13 courses, some caviar, lots of wine, and top notch service.

I did some King Street bar hopping and even got to meet up with my cousin I haven’t seen in several years! For my final few hours before heading to the airport, I had a great Cuban lunch then walked around and enjoyed the nice weather.

Charleston was beautiful and super delicious! Thank you! My next trip isn’t until mid January (so far away, I know) where I’ll be joining a medical mission once again since it was such an amazing experience. Until then, more catching up to do!
