Beaufort Trip

Apr 2, 2019

I had several requests to share all the details from our Beaufort Trip. This is our third year going so we have a few favorite spots we frequent. It is such an easy drive from Charleston not even an hour and a half. It is a special tip for us because it is a tradition we started just the three of us.

Our favorite stop on the drive down is this cute little country store called Carolina Cherry Company. I just love it, so many fun goodies. I always pick up handmade pestos and sauces.

A new coffee shop called Superior Coffee just opened up right beside it and it is adorable. The kids both got strawberry slushies that were so good.

We always stay the the City Loft a cute little hotel right in downtown Beaufort and we can walk everywhere. The staff is amazing and at night they bring you warm chocolate chip cookies which the kids love.

These two cuties love a hotel room. So there was a small couch big enough for Frances to sleep on but they both insisted on sleeping in the King bed with me:) Needless to say I didn’t sleep great but treasure these memories. Robes are the Loomia and you can use code snoopnattynat15 to save 15% off orders.

My kids also always love a hotel gym. I never let them go in if other people are there but if it is vacant I let them in. I am not quite sure what the allure of a gym is but they love it!!

We always like to do dinner at Plum’s and sit outside it is right on the water and yummy always. The kid’s mac and cheese is amazing. I love the Greek Salad with salmon.

After dinner we always get ice cream at Yoyo’s. The salted caramel is so good.

During the day we usually walk around to little shops and there is a great park right on the water the kids love.

The kids favorite spot is a place called The Lollipop Shop. They have the coolest candy and you can build your own bears which they love doing.

This year they did a llama and unicorn.

Exploring some side streets:) We packed scooters this year which was such a good idea for the kid’s to scoot around town.

We always love breakfast at Lowcountry Produce.

I always get the Traveler’s breakfast- two eggs, avocado toast, toast with fig jam, crispy bacon and tomatoes.

My favorite shop is Scout Southern Market. Great home stuff and boho clothes and cover-ups.

Favorite lunch spot is Wren’s. Cutest interiors and yummy food.

I want to recreate this hummus appetizer at home. It was hummus topped with feta, olives, roasted tomatoes and cucumber and carrots. The kids loved it too.

Their chicken salad is famous order it if you go.

For dinner we always eat at Hearth. The most delicious pizza. I love the interiors too such a cool mix of tile and wood and awesome artwork.

The arugula salad is a must. So many pizzas looked amazing but I had to get this to share with kids- haha.

Ready for dinner in my fav Amazon Dress. Trust me you need every color, so good and $26.

If you love chocolate Kilwins is a must stop. They are known for their chocolate covered strawberries. We sampled the fudge too and it was so good.

Can’t wait until our next trip!

    You must go to the Chocolate Tree next visit. I grew up going there. Always reminded me of the I Love Lucy episode. Beaufort is a special place.
