Charleston & Savannah- A Short Report & Thanks

We recently travelled from Savannah to Charleston and appreciate all the advice we got from our ‘advisors’. Thought I’d pass on some comments: Savannah – stayed at Ballastone Inn and enjoyed it. Ate at Local 11 Ten (great!) and the Pink House (seriously over-rated). Drove through St. Helena Island on the way to Charleston. If you’re interested in Gullah culture, I recommend it – and don’t forget to stop at Gullah Grub for lunch! In Charleston, stayed at Vendue Inn - great location/service was fine. Enjoyed eating our way through Charleston including Magnolia’s, Cypress, Rue de Jean, and Hank’s – all different/all very good – even if a bit pricey, but that’s Charleston. In Charleston, we took the Palmetto Carriage tour and were disappointed. I know the routes are highly regulated, but our route was not particularly interesting and did not give us a good overview of the city. Our guide was knowledgeable enough but uninspiring. A far better – if very different and very entertaining tour – was that of Gullah Tours – a great way to learn more about the city. Again, thanks to all --

Wonderful that you had an opportunity to take the Gullah Tour. Alphonso Brown and his tour are Charleston treasures.

Gullah Grub sounds great. The menu has my mouth watering! Hope to visit there sometime in the next few weeks.

Thanks for taking the time to write!
