479 King St, Charleston, SC 29403, USA
Charleston, South Carolina ranks in my book as one of America's top food cities. I recently stopped by The Macintosh to try their much-raved about brunch. Chef Jeremiah Bacon (yes, real last name) turns out heart-stopping dishes like rabbit hash,...

A colonial classic, Charleston might initially come off as a little ye olde. But if you look more closely, this 340-year-old harbor city actually lives in the present. Bars reinvent Southern spirits, boutiques showcase new spins on cotton, and the...

King Street has no loss for places to have a nice Sunday brunch. AC's is not one of those places. Known as the college students' hangout for their cheap beers, the mood shifts come Sunday mornings when the same hipsters show up to drink $1.50...

In the South, it's quite easy to eat bacon at every meal—it shows up in everything from the Bloody Marys to the brussels sprouts. After several days in Charleston, however, you might need a break from all that meat. Thankfully, the crew...

This bakery and coffee shop serves a lovely delight called the Hummingbird. It's a vanilla cupcake with walnuts, pineapple, and a cream-cheese  icing: If banana-nut bread, a pineapple cake, and a carrot cake had a baby, it'd be the...

For those seeking a true taste of Charleston, it’s hard to recommend anywhere better than Hominy Grill. You’ll likely have to wait for a table, but just grab a drink in the front courtyard until it’s your turn to sit. Meals...

Folly Beach, SC 20412, USA
Driving to Folly Beach, there is a road that heads down to this area for you to walk. A short walk later you emerge over the sand with a view of the lighthouse just off the islands. One of my favorite spots in the Charleston area.
