Definitely Airbnb (airbnb.com) has become our preferred app to book a place to stay. It is cheaper and most importantly we get to meet locals. And if you like to travel as much as we do, you should know that experiences when traveling is everything. You might not remember the place but you will definitely remember the conversations, the smell, the laughs, and that will trigger the good memories.
This was a short stop to Charleston thus we only spent a night on our way to see the family in Orlando, Fl (The Toll City :$ ). We stayed at Mt. Pleasent area, which is only 10 minutes from The French Quarter. This area looks very modern and growing; there are new constructions everywhere you look around.
Revelry Brewing (@revelrybrewing) was our first stop of the night. They have very complex beers selection (this is a great compliment). We picked a barrel aged stout black and a belgian blonde. You gotta sit at the Rooftop…spoiler: the view is amazing. Nice crew, awesome environment, reasonable prices.
City Market was our next stop. It was too late in the night to see the artesians but we had our appetizer as an anticipation for the entree the next day.
The next day we said bye to our host and headed to the City Market (the main attraction). I didn’t know before Charleston is a cruise town. With that mind, there was a lot people in the City Market (Tip: try to look for a parking on the street. We paid over 15$ just for couple of hours. Don’t make that mistake.) Yes, you gotta go to the City Market. People work hard to make things for you to remember the city and come back to it: baskets, soaps, scultures, paintings, pictures, horse ridings, books, recipes, food, chocolates, jewelry, clothes, scarves, more and more. At the time to leave this beautiful city we stopped to eat.
Taziki’s (@tazikis) is a small mediterranean restaurant. As we started on this vegan diet adventure, we couldn’t pick a better place to continue with our healthy lifestyle. We ate two delicious sandwiches to then and only then continue hitting the road off to Orlando.
