Morris Island Lighthouse

Graffiti covered path leading to views of the lighthouse

When this lighthouse was originally built in 1876, it was sitting on the shore of Morris Island. However, rapid erosion over the years has left the lighthouse stranded in the middle of Charleston Harbor. To see the lighthouse, you will walk about half a mile on a paved path that is covered from beginning to end with colorful graffiti. The beach at the end is a perfect place for collecting shells or a picnic. Make sure you park with all four wheels off the road on East Ashley Avenue and at all beaches in the area.

This waterfront shack has been serving up delicious seafood and great views since the 1940's. While everything is good, you can't go wrong with the steamed oysters or the Frogmore stew. If you aren't hungry, they also have a full bar.

Jack of Cups

Pub with creative, international food

This funky hole in the wall with vegan options serves up far more than traditional bar food. In fact, this place is more of a tiny restaurant with a bar than a saloon that serves food because few people venture in without trying one (or all) of their curries or shareables.

Chico Feo

Outdoor spot for Caribbean food

What more could you want after a day on the beach than tacos or another Caribbean inspired dish and a cold beer from a cooler. Because this restaurant that feels like you are sitting in someone's backyard only has outdoor seating, they are closed when it rains.
