On my sister trip to Charleston this past June, I had compiled the most intensive itineraries. I wanted to be certain that there would be no shortage of activities to do in case of inclement weather or we tire of shopping so I threw in some things we don’t find ourselves doing typically in Atlanta,
I’ve not yet been to Charleston when it rains. However, this past trek to Charleston wasn’t met with such sunshine luck as we had with previous trips and we found ourselves darting between rain drops into storefronts and wading through the market that quickly went underwater during the deluge. When we finally made it to our
The drive down 20 from Atlanta to Beaufort, SC isn’t really the most exciting. There are a couple of routes you can take from Atlanta to get to this Seaside town but I find that although lacking in roadside attractions, the route through Augusta proves to be the quickest, therefore, my chosen route. After the
Being an equestrian my attraction to trucks is greater than the average girls would be. Country music boasts their love for trucks for muddin’, off roadin’, “checkin’ girls for ticks”, but I feel like growing up riding horses has given me the most appreciation for trucks. They were the reason I was able to take my horse
After a delightful breakfast at our hotel of poached eggs and biscuits, the morning had promised to produce a hot afternoon with a stray cool breeze. So we set off on a pedaling adventure othrough the Spanish moss-draped oaks that dotted the town of Beaufort SC.
There are a few things greater than well made sweet tea on a hot summer day. I will admit, growing up I didn’t have much of a taste for it- however as I’ve aged, when the sun is scorching overhead the first thing my mouth starts watering for is an ice-cold glass of sweet tea.
It’s become a habit of increasing frequency for me to walk into a place and immediately fall in love with the atmosphere. None have struck me quite as intensely as the former post office turned daily eatery like Lowcountry Produce in Beaufort, SC. It’s as if the owners themselves were catering to the fact that
In Charleston there are a plethora of places to stay and eat at. From AirBnB’s with private gardens, to haunted hotels on King street, and then there are boutique hotels providing more than just relaxation but curating an entire low-country luxury experience for all who cross their courtyard. None do it better than Zero George
Last Summer when I was in Charleston I heard rumor of a place named The Darling Oyster Bar. Being a curator of “Darling” myself, I had to put it on my to-visit list for my trip. One glance at their website and brunch menu, and I knew it would be love at first sight.
As autumn peaks over the horizon and the humidity starts to evaporate from Atlanta like a steamy shower would dissipate when the door is left open, Atlantan’s start craving all things cool weather. We found ourselves in a position to escape the sweltering heat of late summer and headed north up I-75 to the mountains,
Even though summer is quickly coming to a close in 9 days, I’m going to steal away for one more petit Summer Vacation before it’s blanket scarves, equestrian vests and riding boots until Spring rears her flowered crown in March once again. One more Summer vacation means it’s time to use my favorite travel bag from
When it comes to road trips from Atlanta, I have a 6 hour in-the-car limit for how long I’m willing to travel on the road. Don’t get me wrong – a properly executed road trip for 20+ hours is a blast with the right preparation, but when I’m just ready for a weekend getaway, 6 hours is
