My Favorite Things to do in Charleston
Happy Friday everyone! It's a beautiful spring weekend, and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming sessions I have. One thing I get asked often is, "what do you like to do in Charleston?" While there seems to be hundreds of things to do, I wanted to create a list of some of my favorites, and I hope you all enjoy ¨̮
LUKE & SARAH'S IDEAL DATE NIGHT
One of our favorite special date nights would begin with a cocktail at Post House Inn followed by dinner at our all time favorite restaurant, Red Drum. Then we'd head over to Theatre 99 for the best improv show you'll ever see, and we'd finish out the night with drinks atop the Vendue overlooking the Charleston Harbor.
SARAH'S FAVORITE SEASONAL ACTIVITIES
- SEWE - this is a fun outdoor event held in February in Charleston
- Charleston Wine + Food Festival - This is such a fun thing to do if traveling to Charleston in late February/early March.
- Strolls through Hampton Park in March and early April to see all of the flowers blooming
- A walk on Sullivan's Island with my husband with a scoop of Republic Ice Cream in hand (they have gluten free cones too in case you were wondering ¨̮ - We love to do this year around
- Pitt Street Bridge Sunsets - The colors are immaculate in the summer
- Walks around downtown Charleston in the Spring
- Ghost Tours in October + November when it is a little cooler
