Two weeks ago today we took off for South Carolina to celebrate our second anniversary. The first stop was Charleston and second stop was Kiawah Island. I'd been to Charleston for my bachelorette party but never to Kiawah and it was Derek's first time to both. It was an easy flight and we loved both the places we visited - having two days to enjoy each.
We stayed at The Restoration, a boutique hotel just off of King Street. We loved the hotel because it used to be condos so we had a spacious amount of room to work with - the balcony was my favorite part for sure. Another plus was that they brought you complimentary breakfast in a picnic basket each morning at the time of your choosing.
Derek had a few anniversary treats waiting in the room and I loved them all.
We got into town just in time for an anniversary dinner. After a little time at the hotel we walked down King Street over to Grill 225 for a delicious steak meal.
For our first day we decided to do a boat cruise to see Charleston from the water the do a little wandering around on our own.
After the cruise we stopped off for lunch at The Vendue Hotel Rooftop - we can never pass up a good rooftop and seeing the city from up there was perfect.
To finish off the afternoon of sightseeing we explored the classic sights like Rainbow Row and The Battery.
Our hotel had a happy hour each night in the lobby with wine and cheese so we took advantage of that and enjoyed ours out in the little courtyard area.
For our meals we went with all places that we could walk to so dinner was at Hank's Seafood then went to the Market Pavillion Hotel to enjoy a drink on that rooftop (see a trend?!)
We finished the night at Kaminsky's for some adult milkshakes which were delicious.
