Early Sept Trip report

Our first adventure to Charleston was so incredible I already starting planning a return and passing rave reviews on to family members who will love this city for the beautiful homes, architecture, history etc. We travel for off the beaten path and more relaxed trips. Researching for a place to stay kept being drawn to Lavender and Lace B & B on Tradd St. Excellent choice(for us) for numerous reasons. With a name like "lavender"...hmmm check out my post name.. It is at a perfect location for relaxing and we were able to take our time and SEE unique things we wouldn't have noticed in a car. Parking off the street which was great and we walked EVERYWHERE except for those special moments of bike riding SOB(something we don't have much time to do back home). Did carriage tour with tour group with uniforms and red sashes. Our guide was wonderful and so many little details I had to jot them down to share with folks who will visit later. Ate at Hominy Grill for the shrimp and grits My first time and it was great. Did walking up and down King and Meeting to Market and the farmers area. Supper on the roof deck of charleston Crab house. Husband got the boiled pot of crab legs, mussels, corn, potatoes, shrimp, etc. Second day we ate at Jack's cafe near college. By no means "fancy" but food was plentiful and we enjoyed the non-touristy vibes. Did another carriage ride with another carriage company just to see what they might have to offer that was different. We wound up doing the same route but he put a different spin on it and gave other trivia. I will post a list of things we learned on the carriage tours seperately. Walked the battery, the waterfront, and historic areas.
