We just arrived yesterday from vacation–we went to Charleston, South Carolina and Kiawah Island–both unbelievable in different ways.
A quick huge shout out to my friend Shea and her family for a FABULOUS time!
I’ve included a slew of photos for you –if you’re anything like me, I love to see photos of new places so I know what to expect !
Charleston is a small town with cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture & coastal scenery, bike taxis (more on this!), outstanding and I mean fabulous restaurants, and above all, some of the kindest people you will meet in your life.
Kiawah is an island about 30 minutes from Charleston and is known for its gorgeous coastal homes and famous resorts & golf courses such as the Kiawah Island Ocean Resort Golf Course (home of the 2012 PGA tournament) .
There are multi-million dollar homes peppered throughout this island with beaches to die for (anyone like shells?) You can rent a cottage, house or stay at the popular Sanctuary which doesn’t disappoint. The girls and I spent the day there while my husband played golf.
Here are photos and my top things to do in Charleston and Kiawah(after photos) I promise–if you ever plan to visit–you won’t be disappointed!
