Dan and I spent 6 wonderful days in Charleston, South Carolina for our honeymoon. Besides the regular newlywed stuff, here's what we did:
Lots of sleeping in!
Admired the antique southern decor as we waited for our elevator at the historic Planters Inn.
In the morning, we took a long walk past College of Charleston to Hominy Grill for a delicious breakfast!
We did lots of History stuff.
We spent time on the USS Calamagore Submarine (above) and the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier (below). We also wandered through graveyards in Charleston and visited The Old Slave Mart Museum.
This is where boots were repaired for the 3,000+ men onboard while out at sea during WWII.
We got caught in a tourist trap fishcamp while searching for a fried seafood platter. We sat at the same table that Neil Young did when he got caught in this same trap years ago. That made it a little better, I guess.
We still ate lots of GREAT food!
We'd made reservations at Husk months ago. Good thing, because in September it was named Bon Appétit Magazine's Best New Resturant in America, and the place was packed.
Happy at Husk! We also ate Charleston's signature dish, She Crab Soup, every chance we got. My favorite one was at Hank's.
After a busy couple of days in Charleston, we crossed the Cooper River Bridge into Isle of Palms where we would spend the rest of our vacation relaxing by the water.
Early morning crosswords by the pool.
And a little bit of beach time too!
It was a beautiful honeymoon, and we didn't even have to leave the Carolinas! I can't wait to visit Charleston again.
