Pink houses, great shopping, foodie-centric restaurants: all reasons Charleston is a top pick for a weekend away with your best friends. Pick a few restaurants to visit before you get there and make a reservation (they fill up quickly!), then let the rest of the weekend be full of relaxing. Walk around the downtown area, where local boutiques and favorite chains mix together, alongside little coffee shops and outdoor markets. If you’re into history, take a boat ride to Fort Sumter, or stick to land and sip cocktails on the rooftop at the Pavillion Bar or Stars Restaurant. At night, head to Cure Nightclub for DJ’s and dancing or Craft Conundrum for an evening of brews and food trucks.
No matter which locale you choose, you and your girls will leave feeling relaxed, fulfilled, and even more eager for the most exciting event of all: your wedding.
