Letter #474: Charleston Via Pictures!

Dear vacation,

You were perfect. I can’t sing Charleston’s praises enough, but I’d rather reminisce via pictures and maybe let you guys see into how great it really is!

After three hours of sleep, the journey begins...
We arrived on Mardi Gras, thus masks were required!!!
Harbor tour!!! Perfect way to see the city and area. Also, I fully embraced the opportunity to rock the nautical look. It's VACA!!!
Fort Sumter...where the firsts shots of the Civil War were fired.
Riding bikes on Sullivan's Island and the beach...extremely windy but definite highlight!
One of the many fine dining stops during our stay! Poogan's Porch: January & February, M-T, roll it back to 1970 prices...HOLLA!
The beginnings or our carriage ride through one of the most historic cities I've ever been too!
The carriage...imagine the sound of horseshoes against old cobblestone roads as you pass homes built in the 1700s that are still kept up and lived in. Gorgeous.
The Church Street Inn...perfect location in the quaint of downtown Charleston.
Middleton Place Plantation. Maybe the most gorgeous expanse I've ever seen.
Plantation perusing...
The food was to die for...didn't dine at a bad place. Here's a list of our destinations: Amen Street, Mad River Bar & Grill (was more of a bar than a restaurant...not my favorite, go elsewhere to eat), Market Street Deli, SNOB, Magnolia dessert, Poe's Tavern (Sullivan's Island, great fish tacos), Poogan's Porch ($9.99 steak and the best rolls ever...roll it back!), Toast (brunch), Bakehouse dessert, Magnolia (best shrimp and grits), Middleton Place (the plantation) Restaurant (great deal for a 3 course meal), High Cotton, Magnolia dessert (clearly our favorite...peanut butter, chocolate chip bread pudding. Enough said!)...I'd recommend any of these places, but just know these places and Branson don't charge the same amount for food, but it's vacation!!!

You were so much fun and Charleston was the perfect location. I’d recommend it for any girls’ or couple trip! Readers, if you ever decide to go, let me know. I’ll give you tips and tricks I learned while there. I love to travel and would have fun no matter where I visited, but you were perfect.

Until next time,

Embracer of Charleston’s memories

I'm Lindsay. I write letters at least one a day to be exact. I love words of affirmation, the OKC Thunder, Oklahoma State, tempos with v-necks, ice water, garage sales, budgeting and Blue Bell. Processing life and quality conversation make me tick. I'm simple yet complex all at the same time. My family and friends mean more to me than the world, but my identity lies in Christ.
