weekend getaway // charleston, south carolina

i never really gave charleston, sc much thought until i moved to dc. it seems as though everyone that lives in dc has been to charleston and raves about how wonderful it is and how they wish they could live there forever. with all the hype surrounding this place it quickly shot up on my travel list so you can imagine how excited i was when my friend (and the bride) kristen decided that this would be her bachelorette weekend destination. 

we were lucky to find a long weekend that worked for all the bridesmaids so we could make the most out of our visit. after lots of planning we came up with a great plan to see the sites but also relax and enjoy this mini vacation. aside from the charm of the city my favorite thing (this might not be a surprise) was the food scene. every meal we had was amazing and it was fun to get my fix of southern favorites... hello grits! 

here are a few photos from our adventure!
charleston city market - while here we purchased benne wafers which are a yummy seasame seed cookie. if you ever make it down to charleston i suggest you try some!
folly beach!
one of many nights out to celebrate the bachelorette!
on the way out of town we stopped by middleton plantation which was beautiful! i wish we had more time to visit the other plantations... guess i'll just have to come back!
