Advice Requested - Romantic Weekend in Charleston.


Chalmers St., Charleston, S.C.

Not for me. Sheeesh. Nice thought though!

Charleston is a perfect romantic destination. Fellow blogger Kristi from Alabama is planning her wedding and is coming to Charleston for her honeymoon.
Honeymoon destination: Yes, we will be traveling northeast to visit the great state of South Carolina. We'll spend three nights in Charleston and two nights in Hilton Head.

Neither of us have been to either city before, so I need your advice! please

Are there any places (restaurants, shops, museums, landmarks) we should see while visiting these two towns? I love to shop and we both love to eat. I would LOVE to hear your suggestions if you have traveled to this area.

What shall we tell her? Let me know how newlyweds should spend three days in the lowcountry and I will add them to the post. Where shall we send them to eat and what should they see? I think we can assume that she will write about wherever we send her. Let's plan Kristi's honeymoon.

Advice so far:

Stay at: Charleston Place or Battery Carriage House Inn
Romantic Big Treat Dinner: McCrady's
Breakfast: Fast & French (G & M Broad St.), Hominy Grill
Beach: Sullivan's Island with lunch at Poe's Tavern.
Plantation: Magnolia Plantation, walk the romantic garden but don't miss the Audubon Swamp Walk.
Picnic: Battery Park.
Churches & Cemeteries: Gateway Walk
Sunset Sail: Schooner Pride
Comedy Improv: The Have Nots
Evening Dessert Treat: Kaminsky's
Saturday Morning: Farmer's Market

Keep 'em coming! This is fun.
