Exploring Charleston #1

We have been living in Charleston for a little over a year now but have not even begun to really explore the city.  There are so many places I want to visit and restaurants I want to try.  My mom was in town this weekend so we did a little walking around and tried two places on my to-go list.

 We happened upon the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist while walking around.  My kids said it was 'creepy'. I thought it was very interesting and the stained glass was pretty amazing.
 I always see some of my fav Charleston area bloggers posting pics on Insta from Kitchen 208 on King St.  Finally got to try it.  There was a loong wait for food but it was pretty good. I had the Turkey Shoot.

We then headed up King Street to try Christophe Chocolatier which located off King on Society.  We tried the Opera Cake:
 and several macaron.  The one below is coconut.  It was delish.
 What are your favorite restaurants in Charleston?!  Anyone know of any good Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants here??

  13. so jealous that you live in that beautiful city!

  14. I've never been to Charleston, but I've always wanted to go! It looks beautiful;)

  15. My son went to CofC and now my sister moved there. It is a wonderful city with a lot to do. I loved the grave yard and jail house ghost tours. It might be too much for the kids, depending on their ages but such spooky good fun. There was a really good fish place on King Street, but I can't remember the name. I'm sure you'll find it. It's one of the hottest spots.

  16. I have heard amazing things about Mex 1 in west ashley, I have been dying to try it!
