Trip Report Charleston, SC and up the coast, sort of

Jump to last reply

First, thanks to all for the ideas of what to see and do along the way.

We left MD on a Thursday late afternoon on our way to a Saturday wedding in Charleston with a stop in Emporia VA, arriving North Charlseton on Friday in the Early afternoon. Why North Charleston - well, it was to meet up with BIL and SIL who were there to scout the Charleston area out as a place to live and they had Marriott points. The only impression I have of N. Charleston is that it must be the Hotel/Motel capital of SC. We were ate the Springhill Suites and I think every chain that exists in the US was within a quarter mile.

First thing was to go into Charleston for dinner. Following Fodorite advice, we tried to get a reservation at SNOB but they were booked, I believe until 2024 or thereabouts. No SNOBs for us this trip. So we found a table at Magnolia which was as nice as Fodorites said it was. I had the parmesan crusted flounder and washed everything down with Palmetto Pale Ale - fine stuff. Everyone was happy with their food and we then looked at the stalls on Market St - a nice combination of nice crafts and sweetgrass baskets and schlock. One store that the ladies enjoyed was "Filthy Rich" which has reproductions of jewelry worn by the rich and famous. DW bought a pin there this past January based on a Dali painting. It always get noticed, like, what the heck is that supposed to be!

Next day we checked into what was to be our home for the next 3 nights - a B&B called Plantation Oaks and now the trip really begins.

Gotta go - bye y'all till later.
