meredith's bachelorette party // charleston, sc

about a year ago i traveled to charleston, sc for my friend kristen's bachelorette party (you can read about that adventure here). we had such a great time in that charming city so i was excited to return a few months ago for yet another bachelorette party, this time for my friend meredith. traveling is by far one of my favorite things to do and i have found that returning to a city for the second time affords some neat opportunities to experience the city as a local. from knowing your way around the city to not feeling the pressure to go to all the 'must see spots' it's been a more relaxing traveling experience for me.

for my first visit to charleston we stayed in the heart of the city which was awesome because we were able to walk around and explore, however, this time we stayed in isle of palms which was also a great experience. i was glad to see another part of the city and with such a stunning rental house it was easy to get settled in! the house was right on the water and had a beautiful sun room with a huge deck where we enjoyed lots of sunlight and yummy food and drinks!
^^^ can you tell we were happy to be reunited?! ^^^
one thing that meredith and i share is our love for food so it was no surprise that the weekend was filled with some of charleston's best restaurants. i think i have made my love for grits known before but they really are so so amazing... especially in the south. i made sure to get my fix of grits, biscuits and friend chicken while we were there!
 
^^^ pineapple fountain and rainbow row ^^^

a big thank you to meredith's sisters for planning such a fun weekend! can't wait for meredith and robs big day in san diego, ca!

where we ate:
hominy grill // edmund's oast // husk

  1. I come to this place every now and then. The Chicago event venues are really nice, the crowd is full of regulars, and the food and drink specials are pretty good! The staff is great and really gets to know your name. Totally worth your time on any night for good food and drink.
