Along the storied blocks of Calhoun Street, you’ll find the soul of a small town that has stood for generations. Among its lavish storefronts you’ll find a paradise of shopping, dining and relaxation. In short, it was the perfect place to take the Blender Bombs girls for an enchanting day trip.
Once defined as a secluded enclave for quirky artists and oystermen, Bluffton’s evolution over the last few years has transformed it into an iconic getaway blending old-school Southern charm and new-school sophistication. You’ll find tradition here, and stories that go back generations. But you’ll also find boutique stores boasting the latest in refined Southern fashion, restaurants on the vanguard of the South’s culinary renaissance and a renowned sense of hospitality that has made this sleepy town a world-renowned destination.
So when South magazine decided to entertain the girls from Blender Bombs, we couldn’t think of a better spot. With the loan of a decked-out street-legal Moke (hot pink, of course) and a room at the Old Town Bluffton Inn to rest their heads, we set them loose on B-Town with a quest to find the best places to shop, dine and explore. What they found has us ready to plan our own girls’ weekend in Old Town Bluffton.
