This week’s podcast walks you through a budget-friendly and fun weekend with kids in Charleston, SC; one of the most popular and unique travel destinations in the world!

Last year my husband and I took our two kids ( teenagers age 16 and 13) to Charleston, SC for a long weekend.


There was a catch.

As always we were on a budget (nothing new there then ) and I must admit, I was somewhat worried as to whether we’d be able to make our money stretch.

Our budget was $80 per day for the four of us.

Did we do it?

We certainly did, and on this week’s podcast, Sonny and I share with you some fabulous (and cheap) things to do if you find yourself in Charleston SC with your family!

If you are in Charleston for longer than a day or two and would like an in-depth guide of what to do then read 23 (Awesome) things to do in Charleston with kids.  You’ll be spoiled for choice!


Fun Things To Do in Charleston, SC 


First off, Charleston was nothing like our kids (or us) imagined.

I had this image in my head of a twee little place with lots of horse-drawn carriages and rich tourists.

But I was wrong. 

Yes, Charleston has horse-drawn carriages (and no doubt people with plenty of money,) but what stands out to the first time tourist is just how vibrant, young and exciting the city is.

Charleston is steeped in history and intrigue and packed with fabulous places to eat and fun things to do. It is the perfect place to visit – especially if you have kids!

Do you love to travel but could use a few tips on how to do it more often (for a lot less?) Join me!

🌟 Taking what turned out to be the BEST walking tour that we took throughout the world (and why it scared us half to death).

🌟How we viewed Charleston, SC and whether it really is a good place to take kids


Photos That I Promised You!


Looking for things to do in Charleston at night? Start by eating a fabulous meal at this budget restaurant.

My idea of heaven… Avocado, (vegan) cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, rocket. Delz Uptown is a fabulous budget choice restaurant when in Charleston SC.

This is the scarf that we kindly bought for Sonny at the Charleston city market. Ok yes. I’ll admit. He looks as though he is frozen half to death…
