On his third night in Charleston, Washington joined a few fellow members of the Society of the Cincinnati + other notable figures for a dinner at McCrady’s Long Room. Throughout the years, the structure on Unity Alley has served many purposes; including a tavern, a warehouse, + even, at one point, a paper company. Fortunately for those looking to recreate Washington’s trip, it ultimately returned to its original form– all the way down to the name.
One of the oldest cities in America, Charleston has successfully evolved into a modern metropolis without sacrificing the rich history of its landscape or architecture. With a skyline punctuated by church steeples instead of high-rise and streets lined with grand Georgian homes, this popular South Carolina destination envelops you with the charm of its colonial past while delighting you with a seemingly endless array of noteworthy restaurants, boutiques, and cultural opportunities. When it comes to dining, Charleston’s star has been rising for years, becoming a landing spot for some of the South’s most innovative chef’s.
