Headed to Charleston this Saturday for 5 nights, me and my husband 50/59 and our 21 year old daughter. I have a rough draft of an itinerary, but it needs some help filling in some empty time, and a bit of help with restaurants. I'm having a hard time with restaurants only because we like simple American, and it's hard to find that! Also, since 2 of the 4 full days we will be there most things are closed, I put whatever is open on those days into the itinerary, so I have to work around that.
We would like to eat lunch at 5 Loaves Cafe, Pit Stop Deli and Gaulart & Maliclet French cafe, but not sure which days to go, since I am not familiar with the proximity of where we are each day at lunch. Also need breakfast suggestions. Would like to visit Angel Oak, maybe St. Michaels, Magnolia Cemetery, go on Charleston Water Taxi. Where would you all put this in on the below itinerary?
If there is anything you would change, or add in, please let me know....need help!! So sorry for the short notice!
