Every year for our anniversary, instead of exchanging presents, we go on a trip. It is a tradition I hope we can always keep up, even if it is a staycation. The last two years, we've gone to DC, but this year we found ourselves wanting to go to Charleston. So glad we picked it! We stayed downtown at the Mills House, which is in walking distance of everything. I loved spending lazy afternoons at the hotel, and I loved not having to ride around trying to find parking (which is all I felt like we did our first time to DC!). We toured Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The weather could not be better, without a drop of humidity in the air. We spent time at the downtown market and pier, took a dungeons and graveyard ghost tour...and of course, ate a lot of delicious food. Brunch at Poogan's Porch and dinner at 39 Rue de Jean were our favorites! Yes, leave it to us to find a French restaurant in Charleston. We downloaded the Open Table app, which turned out to be a life saver because we could book all of our lunch and dinner reservations through it, and never had to wait for a table.
All in all, it was a great trip and we had a blast!
