Unfortunately, we only stayed in Chuck town (the locals nickname for Charleston) a few days and spent the rest of the week in Hilton Head so we didn’t get to experience everything I wanted to…BUT we did some good eatin' and good shoppin'! We stayed at the Charleston Place, which is located in the heart of downtown Charleston in the historic district. Talk about southern hospitality, this hotel was very charming. The best part about Charleston Place was the location; most of the major attractions were within walking distance. They had this quaint breakfast joint just a few steps from the hotel called the Sweetwater Café that my dad and I ate at every morning. It was very “hole in the wall”- ish, and therefore, just fabulous.

This is how I felt walking down King Street

Now, let’s talk dessert! We had the blueberry & peach cobbler with ice cream which was great, but the show stopper was the Coca Cola Cake! Yummmmy was it good.
The show stopper...Coca Cola Cake
A word of caution: you’ll have to wait in line outside on the side of the building because it is guaranteed to be that busy, but they were so very kind to install some high powered fans and free water... it was worth the wait my friends!
I think the beach, the dining, the shopping, and the night life make Charleston a great girls trip destination and I hope to go back sometime real soon!
