Charleston Itinerary Feedback Please

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be going to Charleston and Savannah for a week this fall--end of October/beginning of November. We love history and museums and are big foodies. We tend to go strong from 9-4 ish and then go back to rest up before dinner. We can manage about one house tour per city. We don't do shopping for the most part. We have lodging in VRBOs so we are good there.

Sunday--fly into Charleston and rent a car. Lodging has parking option. Our flight gets in at 6 pm, so I think we will get to the lodging and then just go to dinner.

Monday--Fort Sumter. My goal is to be on the 9:30 ferry or which ever one gets you there when it opens at 10. I can easily see us spending 2 hours there and then add on the ferry time and I am thinking we might be back in the city at 1:00??? For the afternoon, I was going to hit the Visitors Center and buy a self-guided walking tour of Charleston book. And then we can do that--just looking at the outsides of houses and going into any churches that are open. I am really interested in the French Huguenot Church.

Tuesday: Old Slave Mart Museum, Old Exchange and Dungeon, Joseph Manigault House. That should easily be 4-5 hours. We really take our time in museums and enjoy learning. Then maybe do some more of the walking tour???

Wednesday: Start the day with a kayaking tour through Charleston Kayak Company that leaves from the Middleton Place Plantation. That will take the whole morning. Then have lunch there and tour the Plantation. Then drive to Savannah.

Dinner--so we have 3 dinners--Sun/Mon/Tues We are looking at:
Fig
Charleston Grill
The Ordinary American
They all sound great and we can get yummy, not fried, seafood. We really enjoy tasting menus and Charleston Grill supposedly has a good one.

Lunches--we are sandwich on the go types of folks for lunch--saving room for dinner. But Martha Lous Kitchen sounds awesome. And maybe the Bull Street Gourmet Market?

Any other ideas? Any modifications you would make based on what we like to do? Thanks in advance!!
