My wife and I are headed to Charleston in July (I am a Soutnerer, I know it's going to be HOT :) ) but I have never been to Charleston, and am a little overwhelmed with how much there is to see. It's a short visit, and the purpose of the visit is more R & R than anything else, but we still want to see some highlights. Here's my plan.
Day 1: Arrive in town at 1. I have arranged a private three hour walking tour for my wife and I with Charleston Sole (who has been remarkable to work with thus far). That evening, we simply plan to lounge around our B & B (Governor's House Inn, also remarkable thus far) and eat dinner (Poogan's Porch ? Based on a friend's reccomendaton. Other suggestions welcome)
Day 2: This is the day I am unsure what to do with. We want to try Magnolia's for lunch (seems like a tourist trap, but several have said to me "you have to eat at Magnolia's). And tentatively are thinking Peninsula Grill for dinner and the Schooner Pride for a sunset cruise. But I don't know what to do the rest of the day. Based on feedback, most the house tours take an hour, give or take, so I was thinking maybe a couple of those, and a short visit to the Charleston Museum. Which ones are the best, (I know that is a subjective question, I value opinions) or what else would you say is a a necessity to see or do? I was thinking between the hours of 10-2, then lunch, then R & R, sunset sail, then dinner. So roughly four or so hours to fill.
Day 3: Drayton Hall in the morning, Middleton Pkace for lunch and tour in the afternoon. And then bye Charleston :(
