2 bedroom Air bnb that sleeps six! Super close to King Street.


The Vendue Inn

Such a cute hotel with a rooftop bar + restaurant.

A Marriott property centrally located.


Where to eat + drink:

The Cocktail Club

An upscale cocktail lounge. They have happy hour every day except Saturday. Monday-Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 5-7pm, Sundays 5-close.


The Darling Oyster Bar

We sat at the bar and loved the vibe! The decor is so cute. If you love oysters you have to go and sit at the oyster bar!


Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts

The popular donut spot in town!


132 Spring Coffee & Kitchen Bar

The cutest coffee shop! Their breakfast sandwiches are to die for...the pepper jelly, mmmm.

The Vendue Rooftop

The best rooftop in town. Amazing drinks and bar eats.


The Watch Rooftop

Such a cute spot and their food is super good. We got the fried chicken sandwich, the fried brussel sprouts, and the buffalo shrimp. SO yum.


82 Queen

Southern cuisine and such a vibe! Their outdoor seating is awesome when the weather is nice.


Uptown Social

Fun spot to go to for brunch and game days (tons of TV's). Their Bodega menu looks amazing, but unfortunately we got there too late.


Rodney Scott's BBQ

Cute + DELICIOUS bbq spot located downtown.


Fleet Landing

A waterfront bar + restaurant. They have an amazing bloody mary!


What to do:


Charleston City Market

For some unique, locally made goodies.


Shopping on King Street

There are a ton of good stores on this street!


Rainbow Row

The row of pretty, pastel-colored homes located on East Bay Street, just along the Battery. You'll see a ton of people there taking photos, but it's understandable.


Walk along East Bay Street

If you're checking out Rainbow Row just continue walking up and down the street. The houses are so beautiful + charming. If you're looking for an aesthetic photo spot this is it.


Battery Park

Just down the street from Rainbow Row. It's a charming park right on the water.


Charleston Harbor Waterfront Park

Pretty place to relax, read a book, or get some fresh air.


Horse + Carriage Tour

If you aren't into walking, this is a great way to see the town.


Sunset Sail on Charleston Harbor

I would love to do this in the spring/summer time.


Food, Wine, and History Tour

If you want a more organized tour, this is a great one!


Explore the local beaches.

Folly Beach, Sullivans Island, Isle of Palms.
