How To: Charleston in 72 Hours

Happy Monday y’all! I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Charleston, South Carolina and had to share (RAVE) about it. I have been to Charleston a few times in the past, but in just three short days, I feel like we got to see so much more of it than I ever had before. And while I am no expert, I had to share my suggestions of how to visit Charleston in only 72 hours. An alternative title to this could be how to gain ten pounds in Charleston in 72 hours!

Norwegian Escape Cruise Snaps

SHOP THE POST:


What a trip! The Norwegian Escape was my first-ever cruise and I am ruined for normal vacations forever now. My friends and family had me panicked over sea sickness, but while I was aware of the boat rocking throughout the week, it was more soothing than annoying (granted, after a few cocktails I was walking sideways down the halls). It may have something to do with the Norwegian Escape being the fifth-largest ship on the ocean and with a boat that size, there is so much to do on board!

Vegas Recap

I am finally back in Charlotte after an 18-day stint on the west coast. NASCAR traveled from Vegas to Phoenix to California, so I did as well! I had never been to Vegas so I was lucky to have a full week to explore.

I packed all of my recent SheInside apparel. I am obsessed with their built-in sweaters. I know y’all get nervous ordering overseas because of size discrepancies, but these fit like a glove!

I’d been to the Serendipity in Manhattan and was pleasantly surprised that there was one in Vegas too! You can’t beat a frozen hot chocolate. We did some shopping at Kitson and then roamed the strip.

If I could do the trip over again, I would spend the entire time at the Bellagio pool. It doesn’t even look real in pictures and the flowers smelled amazing. Plus, there’s no reason for me to waste any time gambling. I’m terrible at it 🙁

One of my favorite nights was getting to see Carrot Top. The guy gets a bad rap… he’s hilarious! (And passed out shots of Crown during the show!) He was nice enough to invite the NASCAR folks to his green room afterwards and was a super laid-back, friendly dude.

One of the standouts from my trip were the rides at the top of the Stratosphere. I wanted to bungee jump, but chickened out at the top after a couple rides were closed due to high winds! Hopefully, I’ll be braver next time. I’m not a big drinker or partier, so I didn’t think I’d fall in love with Vegas the way I did. But I had a blast and cannot wait to get back! Best people-watching in the world!!
