We’ve been home from Charleston for almost a week and we’re ready to go back…and I’m ready to share a bit more about our trip, but I figured it would be easier to do through photo this time.
While staying in Charleston’s newest hotel located in the historic district, The Holiday Inn Historic and enjoying the southern hospitality, the girls and I were also lucky enough to enjoy breakfast and dinner most days at the hotel’s scrumptious restaurant, The Meeting Room. One of the perks to staying at this hotel is the fact that up to four kids can eat free with every staying adult meal purchased.
Since Kyla is so very interested in architecture, the girls and I spent a lot of time just wandering around the city taking in the beautiful gardens, ancient architecture, and historic cemeteries…
On Saturday the girls and I woke a bit late and wandered down to a fantastic donut shop on King Street called Glazed and indulged our vacationing selves with homemade fresh donuts in a variety of flavors – their menu varies from day to day and the shop closes up as soon as they sell the last donut.
After breakfast, the girls and I spend the afternoon at the South Carolina Aquarium which welcomes children of all ages to search for shark teeth, hold sea urchins and participate in the lemur and shark shows. This was an excellent learning experience for the girls and provided us with a much needed air conditioning break.
After the aquarium, we stopped by Magnifilous Toy Emporium – a toy store right out of Mr. Magoriums Magic Emporium and spent a good hour playing with the toys and choosing just the right outdoor game to bring home.
And of course, what would a trip to a beach town be without an actual trip to a beach? Saturday afternoon found myself and the girls strolling down Folly Beach as the sun set and the air turned cooler. It was time to head home.
Until next time Charleston.See y'all later!
