Tollhouse pie at Kaminsky’s.

Places to Eat (my favorites & some we wanted to get to but didn’t have time):
39 Rue de Jean
Dixie Supply Bakery and Cafe (we went for breakfast)
Kaminsky’s (for dessert, wine, and dessert-like drinks)
Prohibition (for drinks and appetizers)
Peninsula Grill (for a nice dinner)
Tattooed Moose (on the list for next time)
Poogan’s Porch (on the list for next time- we tried to have lunch here one day but it was closed)

Places to See:
The Old City Market
Rainbow Row
The Battery
Aiken-Rhett House
The Old Slave Mart
Carriage tour (I didn’t want to do this at first but was so glad that I did! It’s so hard to see all of the city on foot and it’s so much better when you have someone telling you the history as you’re viewing the sites!)
Drayton Hall (we didn’t make it here but it’s on my list for next time!)

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you enjoyed it!
