Happy almost Friday friends! Today is all about Day Three of our Charleston trip. No worries if you missed day one (found here) or day two (found here), you can still catch up before the full four day itinerary comes to GFG! Here we go!
Day three started in the best of ways! We made our way toward Upper King Street to what can only be described as heaven on earth, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit. This made-by-hand biscuit dive has been on our foodie “must” list for quite some time. And ladies and gentlemen… it did not disappoint! Whether you fancy buttermilk, cinnamon, country ham, blackberry, BLT, pimento cheese, or all of the above 🙂 these buttery and tender biscuits are sure to be a highlight of your trip. Our only regret was not going every day! (Side note – There is also a Callie’s in Atlanta, GA!) Not even 500 feet from this biscuit heaven is the American Theater. Can you take a wild guess as to why you should care about an old King Street theater?? You got it! This is yet another location where The Notebook was filmed! Remember Noah and Allie’s first date?? It took all that was in me not to find a hidden street close to this theater and re-enact the scene where they dance to “I’ll Be Seeing You”. Like I said in Day Two, this city is sprinkled with scenes from The Notebook… and I love it!
Next stop was the Aiken-Rhett House. This house, now museum, will captivate you with every turn. Michael and I both enjoyed the fact that this was an audio tour, which you can walk at your own pace. If you want to expand your knowledge of Charleston history, add this historic home to your list. The tour gives you the ability to imagine what life must have been like in the prime of this beautiful 1820s double home. From the original servant quarters to the elegant marble front entrance, the details are captivating. We even got lucky enough to watch a few minutes of an archeological dig in the back lawn. We learned that before the home was ever built, the land is thought to have been used as a trench by the British in the Revolutionary War!
After loosing track of time during the tour, we decided to eat a late lunch/early dinner. We couldn’t help but go back to Husk at the chance to try their lunch menu. Especially since it differs from dinner! We had previously read that they have the best burgers in all of Charleston… and they do! If you missed my gushing over the dinner that we had on Day Two at Husk, you can read all about it here! Before we headed back to the hotel to freshen up, we found the most adorable ice cream shop called Jeni’s. I highly recommend the roasted strawberry!
I think this is the only picture of the two of us from the whole trip! And of course, Michael is being cheesy!
The only way that you will understand these last few photos and the conclusion of Day Three is if you watch the show Southern Charm on Bravo. If you don’t… don’t judge until you’ve seen it! I must first start by saying, in no way was this planned. When we booked our trip, we had no idea that the show’s season finale would be playing while we were in the city… Well, we got lucky and somehow ended up at the finale viewing party where we got to meet some of the cast! What an end to Day Three!
