Spring break planning this year went like this:
Ok, where can we go that’s kinda warm, we don’t have to fly and will be fun for kids?
I was thinking the train to NYC – Mike said “Charleston”.
I had to think on that one a little bit because we’ve been to Charleston several times, but never with child…what could a child do in Charleston?? How can we handle being there and not eating at the fancy, yummy restaurants??? I don’t think they serve chicken fingers at High Cotton…
But, I kept thinking on it, did a little online research, and came up with some pretty good ideas.
Our spring break is so early every year – the first week of March – so there needed to be an indoor pool for sure – which I found at Charleston Place, so I knew that’s where we needed to be!
Walker loved the trip – he spent a lot of time in the saltwater, infinity-edge pool and the Jacuzzi, we went on a spooky ghost and graveyard tour at night, and a carriage ride down to the battery. We ate at Poogan’s Porch (on the front porch too so we could possibly get haunted by that cute little puppy) and Mike introduced Walker to pralines. We strolled along waterfront park and played in the fountain, watched dolphins swimming in the water and walked through the market. It was very laid back, casual and Walker said it was better than Disney!!! (I totally wasn’t expecting that one!)
We talked about going to the aquarium, but never made it there because we were having so much fun doing nothing! But that’s another great spot for kids in Charleston as well!
We wrapped up the trip back with a quick one-niter in Myrtle Beach. We hit up the Pirate Dinner show, which Walker and Mike loved, and did lots more swimming. The next day we walked around Broadway at the Beach and then hit the road. Mike hates that place and couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
Walker could have stayed two weeks.
So that’s what we’ve been up to. You guys have any fun plans for spring break? Oh and thank goodness we didn’t go to NYC last week! We would have frozen our butts off!!!
