Southern Road Trip; Ghosts, Horses, and Fried Chicken, Oh My!

What would a vacation be without excursions and some anamzing food? Boring! LOL!

We sure did have a great time enjoying some sweet culinary delights while we were on vacation – I mean, the south is known for their comfort food, fried everything and hearty breakfasts and we enjoyed it all!

Our breakfasts in Charleston were enjoyed right around the corner from our Inn – they typically serve a home made breakfast on site, but because of COVID, they have teamed up with four local eateries to provide breakfast for their patrons. We LOVED Miller’s – the atmosphere, the food and they had a Bloody Mary selection that was fab (but you had to wait until 10am to get one)!

We loved the throwback feel of Millers All Day!

Our lunch was our standard picnic style meat and cheese…..

And dinner – well, let’s just say we had some fabulous food! Our favorites were The Charleston Grill (no pictures from this place because it was just TOO fancy – but I can tell you they had the most amazing foie gras in the universe!) and Husk – just a couple of blocks from our Inn. Aside from the dreamy setting – the food was spectacular!

This is Hearth Baked Skillet Cornbread, Benton’s Bacon Crumble.
Grilled Artisan Sourdough, Foie Gras-whipped Ricotta, Apples, Hakurei Turnips and Spiced Pecans. Delightful!
Southern Fried Manchester Farm Quail, Dirty Rice, Bradford Collards, and Louisiana Hot Sauce.
Warm apple cobbler with lavender ice cream….to DIE for!

Are you hungry yet?

Along with some great food, we also loved our carriage ride through historic Charleston.

And we also took a Ghost Tour Pub Crawl! We were treated to some spooky stories about the history of Charleston and enjoyed some beverages along the way!

We really had such a fabulous time on our trip! We really took advantage of all Charleston, SC and Asheville, NC had to offer in such a short visit and we really hope we have an opportunity to visit again!

And a road trip wouldn’t be complete without TRYING to get a photo at each state line!!! Here’s to over 2200 miles traveled in eight days and as many memories cherished and made!!!!
