The Inn takes a Vacation!

While we have been extremely busy at the Inn, the staff does not skimp on fun. Charleston, South Carolina was the hot spot for the Inn this summer. We had four of our staff members hit up the gorgeous streets and nearby beaches of the South Carolina coast.

As you can see, even our favorite innkeepers took a few days off and travelled down to the other Carolina! See Colin at the Charleston Market trying on some Indiana Jones bucket hats. If you squint, you can almost see Harrison Ford.

While wandering around Charleston, they found a delicious dinner spot called O-Ku. They even found a fantastic bar that makes homemade bitters called the Cocktail Club.

Charleston is a great place, but we were so glad to come back to our beloved Durham! O-Ku may have been good, but nothing beats a burger and some garlic fries from The Federal!

Though it has been quite warm walking around Duke Campus, it is that time of year to thank all our wonderful Duke supporters! Laden with large canvas bags and a LARGE bottle of water, we have set out to tackle east and west campus to deliver our thank you bags stuffed with delicious short bread cookies, our signature ginger ale and an invitation to our Duke Open House.

The King's Daughters Inn is so appreciative of the wonderful and supportive Duke affiliates. As alumni of the graduate programs at Duke, Colin & Deanna (the innkepers) have a personal bond with the university and its campus. Over the past couple of years, it has been wonderful to form relationships with various professors and administrators across the campus from African Studies to Zoology and everything in between!
