Explore Charleston In The Spring

I love to explore Charleston in the Spring. There are so many fun things to do, places to eat and shopping galore! My daughter Carole and her friends visited Charleston this past weekend and I thought I would share her experience with you including her beautiful photos. If you’re looking for an amazing weekend getaway, I highly recommend this beautiful destination full of Southern charm. The girls stayed at the Marriott Courtyard on Calhoun Street which is right in the center of everything. They walked everywhere and never needed a car.

A trip to Charleston would not be complete without walking through the gorgeous campus of College of Charleston. Fun fact: CofC was named Travel and Leisure’s 2017 Most Beautiful College Campus! Luckily their hotel was right around the corner! Their first full day included a lot of exploring the campus, shopping on King Street, lunch at the Lost Dog Cafe in Folly Beach and walking on the pier.

Day two included walking up and down Rainbow Row, for scenic insta-worthy shots. Just take a peek at the pastel colors and window boxes bursting with Spring blooms. I have a few Rainbow Row paintings for sale if you’re interested.

Oh, and one more thing! Don’t miss Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits in Charleston City Market (believe me, you can thank me later!). It really is a small world. I met Callie at The Southern C Summit last month and tried her delicious biscuits. Completely unrelated, Carole told me that her favorite meal while she was there were these homemade mouth-watering good biscuits.

Comfort is Key: Shop Walking Shoes

Nothing is more important than packing a comfortable pair of shoes. Charleston is a walking city and you will want to treat your feet to a comfy new pair of sneakers.
