Charleston

Here, you'll find our favorite things to do in Charleston. Of course, there is no shortage of spots to eat/drink/visit here. And it's pretty hard to go wrong with any of the below choices.
167 Raw Oyster Bar

167 Raw Oyster Bar

193 King Street, Charleston, SC 29401

Great spot for seafood on lower King. They do not take reservations, but you can go around the corner to Bar 167 while you wait for your table and grab a cocktail.

Chubby Fish

Chubby Fish

252 Coming Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Some of our absolute favorite meals have been at Chubby Fish. They do not take reservations - you must show up at 4:30, wait in line and let the host know what time you'd like to come back. You can either go home and relax before your dinner, or have a glass of wine at Eliotborough Mini Bar around the corner. Do not skip on the caviar sandwiches or the celery salad!

Vern's

Vern's

41 Bogard Street, Charleston, SC 29403

There's a reason why this is one the most talked about restaurants in Charleston. The sourdough is a must have as well as the escargot. Dinner requires reservations (which you can make on Resy) and we suggest you make this way in advance.

Jackrabbit Filly

Jackrabbit Filly

4628 Spruill Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405

A little out of the way - but extremely worth it. This is one of Eliza's favorites spots. If you're looking for 10/10 food, then this is the spot to go. The spicy karaage and dumplings are her favorites. Reservations required via Resy.

Little Jack's Tavern

Little Jack's Tavern

710 King Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Also known as "LJ's" to Peter, Little Jack's has the best burger in town. Big fans of sitting at the bar, getting a martini and ordering the tavern burger with fries. Reservations required via Resy on the weekend.

Lewis Barbecue Charleston

Lewis Barbecue Charleston

464 North Nassau Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Lewis is the ultimate BBQ spot in downtown, although we find ourselves frequenting Hometeam BBQ way more for gamechangers/wings. You will not be disappointed. No reservations required.

Delaney Oyster House

Delaney Oyster House

115 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

Peter's favorite restaurant! An old historic home turned seafood restaurant downtown. Best oysters you can find!

Melfi's

Melfi's

721 King Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Want to fill up on pasta and pizza and red wine and martini's? Then go to Melfi's. The duck ragu is so delicious, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Get a couple pastas and a pizza to split. Reservations required via Resy (and do so in advance)!

Island Provisions - Downtown Charleston

Island Provisions - Downtown Charleston

221 Saint Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Cute breakfast/lunch/grab and go spot on St. Philip! CRAZY busy on Sundays.

Huriyali Gardens

Huriyali Gardens

401 Huger Street, Charleston, SC 29403

The best smoothies, smoothie bowls and overall healthy food options downtown are here.

The Harbinger Cafe & Bakery

The Harbinger Cafe & Bakery

1107 King Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Cutty and Eliza stop here almost every day for coffee while on their daily walks. Adorable coffee shop in our neighborhood with a vegetarian menu for breakfast/lunch.

babas on cannon

babas on cannon

11 Cannon Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Pro tip: Baba's has the best coffee downtown. There are two locations: Cannon and Meeting. In the morning, they have amazing overnight oats. In the evening, they have the best happy hour.

Graft Wine Shop & Wine Bar

Graft Wine Shop & Wine Bar

700b King Street, Charleston, SC 29403

One of our friends owns and runs Graft, the best wine shop in Charleston. We usually stop in here before dinner at Little Jack's, Melfi's or Leon's. On Sunday, stop by from 3-6 for food trucks and wine.

Citrus Club

Citrus Club

334 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Stunning rooftop views on top of the Dewberry hotel. Best place to get an overpriced cocktail.

Sullivan's Island

Sullivan's Island

Sullivan's Island, SC

This is about 20 minutes from Downtown and is one of the more popular beaches in Charleston. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, so it's a good place to go during the day and then to hop over to Hometeam BBQ or Sullivan's Fish Camp for happy hour. Pro tip: go to Coop or Mozzo's for sandwiches on the way to the beach (but make sure to order ahead).

Shem Creek

Shem Creek

SC 29464

We have spent a LOT of time on Shem Creek. Fun places to eat/drink/people watch (Saltwater Cowboy's, Water's Edge, Red's). Can also rent paddle boards or kayaks here!

The Battery

The Battery

Charleston, SC 29401

The end of the peninsula of Downtown Charleston. Walk around the neighborhoods and look at the houses, because they are all so beautiful, but you can also follow alongside the water from the Carolina Yacht Club to the Coast Guard station and get a pretty stunning view.

College of Charleston

College of Charleston

66 George Street, Charleston, SC 29424

Pretty biased, but this is one of the prettiest locations in Charleston (and of course, where we both went to school).

Hampton Park

Hampton Park

30 Mary Murray Drive, Charleston, SC 29403

Our neighborhood park! Beautiful gardens inside the park, but a great loop to walk around if you're looking to get some steps.

The Works

The Works

465 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Yoga, HIIT or cycling classes (next door at The Works Cycle)! Every class is amazing if you're looking to sweat!

Form Charleston

Form Charleston

320 Broad Street, Charleston, SC 29401

Lagree (or mega-reformer pilates). Spots are limited, so book ahead via their app "Form Charleston"
