Brewery Hop: Charleston is known for its cuisine. But, it is also an upcoming spot for micro beers and breweries. Breweries are great for tasting a multitude of beers that you know are local. Breweries like Frothy Beard offer the PERFECT family friendly experience. They have an entire kids corner with games and toys so the kids can be distracted while you sip on a nice cold one!
Pitt Street Bridge: First constructed before the Revolutionary War, the Pitt Street Bridge was an old trolley bridge that connected Mount Pleasant to Sullivan’s Island. Since the bridge shut down in 1945, it has since offered the BEST view of Charleston where you can see the Charleston Harbor, Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Fort Sumter, and parts of downtown Charleston.
Sightsee at The Battery and Waterfront Park: Nothing is more relaxing than swinging on the swings at Waterfront Park while listening to the sounds of the saxophone in the background. When leaving, don’t forget to stop by The Vendue nearby to look at their wall full of View-Masters.
Charleston Farmers Market in Marion Square: The best way to spend Saturday morning is walking through the farmers market in Marion Square. It is the perfect opportunity to support local farmers as well as local businesses. This is also a great way to taste the local cuisine that is easy on the wallet- there are food trucks everywhere.
Eat something sweet: There is always room for dessert – whether that’s taking one too many free praline samples at River Streets Sweets or one of downtown’s dessert shops, like Kaminsky’s. According to Tripadvisor, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Carmella’s Cafe and Dessert Bar holds the place of top desserts in Charleston.
Get lost on a bike in downtown Charleston: Downtown Charleston offers an amazing bike share program with Holy Spokes. With the peninsula only being a four to five square mile area, biking the Holy City is easy. And without a doubt, beautiful scenery will follow no matter which way you may go.
