Charleston Itinerary Recommendations

Heading to Charleston with my folks for Thanksgiving weekend and trying to finalize our food plans - would love your advice!

We have 4 dinners, 3 mornings and 3 lunches - with Thanksgiving in the mix which means some spots will be closed.

Here's what I'm thinking:

Wednesday Dinner - Macintosh

Thursday Coffee - Blue Tap if it's open, Kudo if it's not

Brunch - Magnolias

Thanksgiving Dinner - High Cotton

Friday morning - Glazed Donut

Friday lunch - Xiao Bao Biscuit or Martha Lou's Kitchen? or SNOB if don't do for dinner Saturday?

Friday dinner - Fig

Saturday morning - WildFlour Pastry Sticky Buns

Saturday lunch - The Glass Onion (or Xiao Bao Biscuit or Martha Lou's or SNOB depending on Friday?)

Saturday dinner - Slightly North of Broad or McCrady's?


Thursday: Walk and explore the Historic District since most places will be closed
Broad to Battery / The Battery and Rainbow Road
Historic Churches - Circular Congregational, French Huguenot Church, Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim
Gateway Walk

Charleston City Market
The Charleston Museum
The Heyward-Washington House
The Joseph Manigault

Drayton Hall
Fort Sumter

Any advice on activities to drop or add? Any advice on which restaurants to hit/not hit?

Thanks so much!
