Continuing with the “day trips from Hilton Head” theme my family and I headed to Charleston for the day yesterday. As with Savannah, my parents and aunt and uncle have been there before. They spent the week there a year ago this past February.

We got ready to leave by 7:30 and then it was a 2 hour drive to our destination. Our first stop once we got there was to head to Barbara Jean’s for breakfast. I’m not sure what was going on with me but on the car ride I felt really sick to my stomach and was worried this would ruin the day in Charleston. However a delicious carb field breakfast helped to settle my stomach although I couldn’t tolerate any coffee šŸ˜¦

I had the veggie omelet with roasted potatoes and sweet jalapeƱo cornbread. Everything was delicious but I credit the potatoes with making me feel back to normal. I also must say our server (I can’t remember her name) was super sweet and friendly as well.

After breakfast we walked through city market, rode the trolley, and then walked all around the historic district. I saw Fort Sumter, the beautiful historic homes and buildings, and cannons from war time. Since we had limited time in the city, I opted to just walk around and take it all in.

As with Savannah I loved the walkability of this city. I am drawn to any area where walking to places is an option. I’m pretty sure that is why I love the Highlands and the Frankfort Avenue area back home.
