Our good friend, and South Carolina afficionado, Max (@SCBeernerd) was kind enough to show us around his home of Charleston. The goal was not necessarily to just hop from bar to bar—as fun as that would have been. Our true mission was to experience the “you can’t get it anywhere else” moments around Charleston.
From the perfect sunrise view, to lunch at Leon’s, Max steered us incredibly right. You can find some photos of our experience below, or head to our Instagram for more photos of our excellence-packed day.
For sunrise, we met in Charleston proper for a pink-tinged view of the Arthur Ravanel Jr. bridge. The necessity of rising early to catch this scenic view made the next stop a no-brainer.
You’ll find Second State Coffee in Charleston’s historic Harleston Village neighborhood. They’ve been doing their thing since 2012, and by the taste of the coffee and croissant we enjoyed, their thing is exactly what they should keep doing.
The rest of the day we spent browsing the vast selection at Charleston Wine + Food. If you’ve never been, it’s a festival celebrating beer, wine, spirits, and food in the heart of Charleston. Truly a special event.
To finish, we meandered back to our hotel. From the beautiful waterfront to the historic architecture, Charleston is one of a kind. It was a day we (and our stomachs) won’t soon forget.
