Hello Fellow Navy moms,
I need advice from anyone who has visited their sailor in Charleston SC. Since my son is new there, he will not have enough time earned to come home for Thanksgiving, so we are planning to go there as a family and have Thanksgiving dinner with him. We are coming out of Pittsburgh PA, so we will be driving down to see him.
Any advice you can give about where to stay and where to have dinner would be awesome!
Definitely join our Nuke mom's group & post your question there. You will get plenty of responses!
Charleston is a beautiful place to visit--we lived there for 6 years during my husband's Navy Submarine term. Had all three of my children there (20+ years ago)
I hope your son is able to enjoy his time in the low-country. I wish I remembered all the incredible places to eat and stay--we hosted many Thanksgiving dinners at our home when we were active duty.
Best of luck and hope you are able to enjoy your holiday with your sailor!!
Not sure about a holiday dinner, but we have friends in the Mt. Pleasant area, just over the big bridge and we have always stayed at the Quality Inn and Suites at Patriots Point. Never had any problems there and the rates and better than staying downtown Charleston. The kids can't wait to go back next year, seems to be usual vacation spot! Good Luck
There is a restaurant in Charleston named Fleet Landing. We were down there for Spring Break and had lunch there. It was used by the Navy during WWII. It was later bought and opened as a restaurant. Although I checked and they are closed for Thanksgiving, you might be interested in going there one day while there.
Thank you all so much for your responses. It's getting close, so I'm getting excited about seeing my sailor! Has anyone stayed at the Foster Villas on base? Are they clean and modern?
My husband is going to visit my son this coming weekend, so maybe he can do some looking around for us! I just hope all the flooding recedes; although my son said downtown Charleston was fine!!
yes. we have stayed there a couple times. it felt like home away from home. we usually rented a three bedroom. it had washer and dryer. some pots and pans. we really liked it there!
