There’s no place that quite epitomizes southern charm like the Palmetto Bluff region in South Carolina. Its historic roots, endless character, and beautiful design and architecture make it the perfect vacay spot to completely recharge and refresh. Mindy recently visited this area for her honeymoon, and couldn’t wait to share her recs with all of you below. xx Enjoy!

This 22,000 acre sprawling resort is home to various residences, eateries, and recreational activities. It’s a one-stop-shop when it comes to a vacay, and not to mention — the whole area is super kid friendly with endless activities for those of all ages.
