Travel Guide: Charleston
Charm on charm! Charleston is one of our favorite places to visit year-round. Recently, our creative team traveled there for a spring photoshoot and explored the dining scene, beautiful hotels, and more. Here’s some of our favorite places to stay, eat, and see, plus our picks for comfortable, travel-ready shoes perfect for your next trip.
What To Wear
From getting there to being there, the London loafer is one of our go-to travel shoes. The tailored aesthetic is a perfect fit for Charleston, plus Soft System comfort makes them comfortable for sightseeing, the airport, and everywhere. Dress them up with a breezy dress or wear them casually with jeans for a perfectly polished look.
Where To Stay
The Ryder Hotel
We love the colorful, boho style of this boutique hotel. The aesthetic is inspired by Charleston’s coastal beauty with a style that’s sophisticated, but still relaxed. We love the hotel’s Little Palm cafe and cocktail bar for quick bites and sips, and their pool is the perfect place to relax.
Where To Eat
The Black Door Cafe
One of our favorite places to grab a coffee, this cute cafe in Charleston’s historic downtown is always on our list.
Harken Cafe and Bakery
All about the avocado toast. On quiet Queen Street, we love getting breakfast and delicious snacks at this European-inspired cafe.
The Citrus Club
Cocktails, anyone? Grab a citrus-inspired drink here and enjoy sweeping skyline and sea-skimming views.
Stop by Eli’s Table for lunch or dinner and expect bold flavors using fresh, local ingredients. Don’t miss the cute outdoor seating!
What To See
The perfect place for a photo opp, this series of colorful historic houses located along the waterfront on East Bay Street is a must-see.
With rich history dating back to the civil war, this fortified seawall and promenade features beautiful harbor views of nearby historic landmarks like Fort Sumter and a few historic mansions.
