Hot New Restaurants in Charleston this Spring

At the beginning of this month we had the opportunity to go on a mini babymoon to Charleston. It was probably our first and last real vacation before baby bee arrives in August. We managed to fit in quite a bit of eating between our preparations for A Charleston Affair, the College of Charleston’s signature Spring alumni event, and a day at the beach. Here are a few new-to-us restaurants we were able to try out over our quick weekend getaway!

Packing for Cabin Weekend

I am far from being a pro at packing but over the years it has become easier for me to limit myself to just the essentials for a short trip. The past few times we vacationed, we elected only to bring carry on bags on the plane (which actually rules out this pack). Almost all of the clothes in my closet are the same five colors: denim / chambray, mustard yellow, black, white, and burgundy. It makes it very easy to mix and match things that I own. I basically dress in a capsule wardrobe unintentionally. Everything I packed for this trip can be worn together and layered to create more outfits than I need for this trip.

Isle of Palms

We drove straight over the Ravenel Bridge to Isle of Palms and paid $10 for public parking. There was hardly any traffic on the island despite it being one way in and one way out. We decided on a whim about 30 miles outside of Charleston to head to the beach. While we were dressed for the cool, breezy weather in our jeans, tees, and sunnies, our lack of bathing suits restricted us to a walk on the beach. It was incredibly crowded but we were still able to soak up some sun while admiring all the cute puppies and babies.

Scenes from Downtown Asheville, NC

It’s been over a year since my last trip to Asheville. We originally planned to go to an apple orchard but decided against it since the weather was still threatening rain. After grabbing a bit of lunch we decided to just walk around downtown for a bit. Since our trip was so short we mostly looked around outside but we did make time to stop in the Grove Arcade and the Mast General Store. Downtown Asheville was so busy yesterday!

Fox Theater Atlanta

While we were in Atlanta we had the chance to walk around the fabulous Fox Theatre. I had no idea it was so gorgeous. The building was heavily influenced by Islamic, Moorish, and Egyptian architecture. We didn’t realize that they actually give tours of this inside so that will be on our to-do list for the next time we visit Atlanta if we aren’t able to go to a show there beforehand. It was sweltering hot outside but I’d say it was worth it to walk to check this site out.
