Visit: Charleston

18 Apr

Our last stop on the girl’s spring break tour de force was Charleston. My sister recently moved to the city with her boyfriend, so we had the perfect tour guides. We broke out our best chinos and boat shoes for the occasion – oh hell, I don’t own either, but whatever.

Stay: We stayed with Leah and Adam. They are not yet offering their B&B services to the public. Stay tuned. Our hosts were extremely generous, and I’m already hoping for a return visit.

See: Leah was a fabulous host and pseudo tour-guide, and spent the day taking us around to see all things Charleston. First, we hit up King Street for some lunch and shopping. Again, if there is a J.Crew store in the vicinity, I have to stop. It’s my version of crack. Possibly just as expensive in all reality.

After shopping, we walked around the Battery, and took just as many pictures of beautiful houses as we did spanish moss-covered trees the day prior. The whole area is like a HGTV dream come true. Gorgeous historic homes, renovated and perfectly maintained. Of course, when you live in a small ranch in suburban Bloomington, Indiana – I basically felt right at home. Totally similar from a design standpoint.

Eat: Dinner at Chai was my favorite meal of the entire trip. As a small plates and tapas restaurant, we decided to share a couple of bottles of wine and everything else we ordered. HIGHLY recommend the ceviche – the chef changes it up weekly, but it was pretty damn awesome the night we were there.

So – where to next year? I’m thinking a fall break girl’s trip may be in order as well, just to stay sharp. I’ll bring the wine.
