Trip Report Charleston wedding trip report

Jump to last reply

Just back from a fabulous wedding in Charleston where my baby brother walked down the aisle with a lovely woman. We stayed in Folly Beach in a rental that I would not recommend, though it wasn't awful- there are just better places out there and the photos on VRBO were not recent any means. Other than that, we had a great time at the beach. Our first stop was at Jestines, yes a touristy spot but in this Yankee's opinion, the food is delicious and it's family friendly with 2 little kids.

Our first full day was spent with a 2 hr. tour out on the Folly River to Morris Island with Capt. Randy. He did a fantasic job. He's a lifelong local who was extremely informative and really engaged both us and the kids. That evening Smoking Pot came to our cottage and did a low country boil in the yard for 14 of us. It was the perfect option for a big group, especially with little kids in the group- they ran around and were fascinated by the live blue crabs that were later eaten for dinner!

After spending the next day downtown, dessert was Sugar Time, an old school candy shop that the kids loved, and Tokyo Crepes for the adults' dessert. Can't beat ending the day on the pier with the sun setting with a strawberry Nutella crepe!
