Oh Charleston…how I love you so dearly.
This was sort of a last minute stop for us. We started our drive from Hilton Head to Wilmington and realized stopping at about the half way point would land us in Charleston around lunchtime! It actually worked out perfectly. Also, I’m a HUGE Southern Charm gal, so it made me even more excited to make a quick pit stop there.
As humid as it was, it was seriously BEAUTIFUL. The buildings, architecture, the trees, the colors, the flowers, UGH. I was in heaven. It’s definitely a place I want to go back and visit for a longer period of time!
We grabbed lunch at Minero, a casual Mexican restaurant. My first impression was that it was darling. Then we had our food, and my next impression was “THIS PLACE IS AMAZING” Haha. We ordered a few tacos and they were so yummy. They serve it kind of like “family style” on a big plate and you just grab what you want. So yummy.
After that we walked around a little bit, then hopped back in the car and made another pit stop at Hustle Smoothie Bar. I’ve followed Hushupandhustle on instagram for a while now & LOVE her blender bombs. She opened a smoothie shop up making all different kinds of smoothies using the blender bombs she created. I just HAD to stop there! They are so healthy and seriously delicious.
After a quick two or so hours in Charleston, we decided we better get on the road and head to Wilmington. Those few hours though were SO memorable! I can’t wait to go back!!
