Charleston: Part One

charleston1We are finally home and done traveling, for now! We spent a full two weeks in Downtown Charleston with my Mom and we had the best time. It is easily one of my favorite cities in America and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun family vacation or a romantic getaway for just the grown-ups.

charleston3I love waking up and walking down to Black Tap coffee for one of their lavender lattes or an iced coffee. It’s right off King Street so you can walk back down and do a little shopping at some really great local boutiques (Hampden Clothing, Luna, and Sapphire Boutique are some of my favorites) or big name stores like Forever 21, Madewell, and Urban Outfitters.

charleston4Taco Boy is my favorite place to grab some great Mexican food. They have a beautiful outdoor patio and are super kid-friendly.

charleston7I recommend staying downtown. There are so many great hotel options but I would suggest getting an Airbnb. It is my favorite way to travel with children because of the convenience (more rooms, a kitchen, etc..) but there are so many beautiful homes here with great charm that you really get to feel like a local.

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting some of my favorite things to do with kids. The city has a surprising amount of kid-friendly activities that are a lot of fun for the whole family.
