Oh, my, I just came from a lovely overnight trip with my daughter to Charleston SC.  What a lovely city.  It was kind of a birthday treat for both of us.  (Her birthday is this month, mine was last month.)
We stayed at the lovely Renaissance Charleston Hotel  right in the heart of the historic district with some WONDERFUL shopping.  My daughter got some lovely items at the Copper Penny and Sam's Closet.  I found a couple great sale items at Anne's and a great purse at Hand Picked.
And the food:  OH MY.  Can't remember the name of the place we had a wonderful salad for lunch on Tuesday, or the roof top bar where we had appetizers and a glass of wine. But from that rooftop, we were able to see the harbor and the famous Yorktown aircraft carrier where our family had visited many years ago when our children were young--mostly for my husband and our son, but the girls and I did tag along.  (The girls were a bit too young at the time to know about all the good shopping.)  And all those years ago we weren't even there long enough for a good meal.  Well, my daughter and I sure took care of that this time!  Dinner was at FIG.  Breakfast the next morning at Sweetwater Cafe and lunch at the famous Jestine's. Kitchen.  All wonderful choices.
If you get a chance to visit Charleston, DO NOT pass it up!

It's wonderful that you and your daughter could take this trip together. Glad you had that special time together.
