Charleston is a very Uber friendly city. If you need to get around town you can always count on an Uber to be around. We highly suggest using Uber or another ride share company to get to the wedding venue.
Returning transportation is provided to our blocked hotels. Guest will be picked up at Wingate Plantation at 11:00pm.
If you could only pick one plantation to visit this would be the one! There is so much to see and do here. The gardens are breathtaking, the stables have so many horses and other animals, and the historic house tour is a must do! Plus there is a wonderful restaurant on site.
Fun fact, this is where David proposed! He took me to stay at the Inn on the property. We toured the grounds and house, kayaked on the Ashley River, enjoyed a picnic basket for two. Then on our way dinner, when the grounds were only open to guests of the inn, he popped the question in the gardens!
If historic Charleston charm is what you're looking for we highly recommend starting at Battery Park. This is not only a historic site along the water with gorgeous trees creating a canopy (where the photo above was taken), but also the perfect place to start touring Charleston on foot. From here you can weave through the streets where every street and house is as beautiful as the last. Be prepared to take a million pictures of window boxes and small cobble stone streets!
As you make your way north from the Battery you will see famous sites like Rainbow Row located on East Bay, followed by the pineapple fountain at Waterfront Park on Concord St. Kids can swim in the pineapple fountain and there's also a large sprinkler fountain to play in here too.
Then, keep traveling north on the peninsula to Market Street and explore the Historic City Market. This is where you can find all the souvenirs you could ever want! You can also cut over to King Street from here if you're looking to do some higher end shopping.
This walk is one of our favorite weekend activities. We always find ourselves wandering down new streets!
This is one of our favorite restaurants! The name says it all, it's absolutely darling inside and the food is amazing! You can get all the southern classics as well as delicious oysters! The location can't be beat either, located on upper King with many other bars and restaurants near by. You can stop into Stars for drinks on the rooftop after dinner, or pop into Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream for dessert.
Be sure to make reservations ahead of time.
This is another amazing restaurant that is so unique and mind blowing delicious! The cabin feel makes it more casual but don't let that fool you the food is to die for, be sure to get the Hushpuppies!
Fun fact, I took David here for his birthday and Bill Murray sat right behind us! So, there's occasional Bill Murray sightings here as he is a part owner.
