Travel | Charleston, SC | Part II

Our trip continued with a tour of Magnolia Plantation. The grounds were absolutely stunning - I cannot get over the trees, they are breathtaking. Though it's definitely worth a visit here, I would not recommend a tour (we did the "from slavery to freedom" and were disappointed). Next time we'd like to check out an un-touched plantation and get some better history in. When we ventured back to town we hit up Butcher & Bee for lunch, grabbing beers from their neighbor/sister market The Daily. When we found out our flight was cancelled we got to planning our extra 24 hours. The rest of the afternoon we shopped, walked, bar crawled (Minero, The Griffon), played darts, pre-din cocktail at Proof ate sushi at O-Ku, sipped night caps + played euchre on Star's rooftop. An unplanned evening that was just perfect.

Our last and final day started with sun and warmth (the latter we had yet to see until this day!). We ended the same way we started, with a visit to Callie's Hot Little Biscuit before taking a long walk south of Broad along the battery. To kill time before our awesome carriage tour (Old South Carriage Co.) we grabbed a drink at 5church. Our tour guide was really great, and our horse Bob too, and we finally got the dose of history we'd been wanting. When our fun ride came to an end we headed for some lunch at Xiao Bao Biscuit (unreal). So happy to have had this extra day because our carriage ride + lunch combo was one of my favorites of the trip. Post-lunch we headed over to the USS Yorktown to soak up a little more history, then a last drink at The Watch rooftop bar in the Restoration on King hotel before catching our flight. Wednesday blues.
