35th birthday celebration in Charleston, South Carolina
I have to admit that my interest in visiting Charleston, South Carolina is due to the amazing Julia of Gal Meets Glam
…So we have planned to visit since last year, but for some reason, last year didn’t work.
We were more committed to go this year and so we did! We made plans to visit mid June, for my 35th birthday, which turned to be great!
The hotel we stayed at was also on top of my list, and we don’t regret the extra expense not even a bit. Its name is 86 Cannon
. If you’re ever in Charleston, don’t hesitate and book your stay with them. It’s a boutique hotel that has not more then 5 rooms, impeccable rooms. A truly southern atmosphere, all the amazing details that are so well put together, the chic, modern design, everything is so charming. Its location is close to everything you might be interested in. They offer bikes that we were so happy to ride around the city, nutritious breakfast that you could enjoy on their beautiful porches, every day there’s a cheese platter and rosé treat that they offer, and the staff there is as helpful as it can be.
We visited downtown Charleston area including The Battery and the Historic college area, endless rides on King Street that’s one of the most populated street in the city, saw a couple of plantations including The Boone Plantation
where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married, and Magnolia Plantation
; spent a day at the bay on Sullivan’s Island, shopped for their famous southern peaches on their Farmer’s Markets, enjoyed their delicious food and so on.
Rainbow Row is a place to see 13 colorful houses, get lost if you can on those cobblestone streets that host such beautiful, timeless houses, take it all in as the southern atmosphere reveals right in front of you!
It’s been a month now since we were last there and I just wanted to blog about this experience and to let you know it’s worth visiting. If I can only make a suggestion, do visit early in the Spring or in the Fall, it was quite humid this time of the year, but still enjoyed it to the fullest! It's up to you to make the most of it!
