A Southern Escape


Nate and I so wanted a gospel choir for our wedding. How Southern is that? Can I get an amen? Image featured on Southern Wedding Magazine. Image by Tim Will.

This weekend my mom and I are going to a wedding in South Carolina. I love weddings, and I am also so excited to be back in the South. Over the weekend, we will be spending time in Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head. I have not been to any of these places. I know, can you believe it? So, today’s Tuesday Project is to figure out some of the best places to eat, shop and explore in these cities. I’m looking for the best Southern seafood, historic churches and some local artwork. I’m going to need a little help, so if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

    You will love all three places! Coligny Plaza in Hilton Head is one of my favorite places to go with my family. It’s got great restaurants, cute (but touristy) shops, and some entertainment by nightfall– there’s always live music scattered around the area. I also love Harbor Town in HHI– it is right by the water so there are lots of neat boats/yachts to see. There is also a lighthouse there that is fun to climb and, of course, has a beautiful view of the ocean (and sunset!) at the top :). Charleston is so much fun too! I’m sure you know it’s great for shopping and sightseeing (carriage tours, ghost tours, etc), but there is also a lot of neat history to see there too. There are a TON of great places to eat there, or to go grab a drink/dessert at night. Marketstreet is full of a bunch of nick-knack, cute things to buy (there are always people weaving their own baskets, which is for some reason one of my favorite things) and judging by your blog posts I think you’d like it there! I have only been to Savannah a few times so I can’t say much about it.. other than: Paula Deen’s restaurant is there if you’re interested (haha). Sorry for the length of this comment! Have a great time this weekend! Can’t wait to see your pics :)

      Ashley, this is so helpful, thank you! I am so excited for Hilton Head, just so this landlocked girl can see the ocean again! I’ve heard about Market Street in Charleston, and will definitely have to check that out. And my mom’s already made reservations for Uncle Bubba’s in Savannah…Paula Deen’s restaurant is always packed apparently. :) Thanks for stopping by and have great rest of the week!

    Wish I had suggestions but unfortunately, have not had the pleasure to visit any of these places. Charleston and Savannah are on my bucket list. Hope you share some photos upon your return so I can live vicariously through you! xo

      I know, this will be my first time to visit as well. I will certainly be sharing pictures when I return. My mom lives by her camera, so I’m sure we’ll have lots to share! Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!
