Charleston is the fourth best city in America for a staycation — according to a recent WalletHub study. Factors considered in the research included recreation, food and entertainment + rest and relaxation.
Here are 3 ways to enjoy a staycation full of fun and leisure around the Lowcountry.
Book a stay at this luxurious hotel on King Street — where you can shop, eat, and enjoy entertainment. Plan to also make a reservation at the hotel’s Champagne Lounge — Camellias. The afternoon tea is a unique experience that will make you feel as if you’re in the middle of Europe. The menu includes teas, mini-sandwiches, and desserts. The lounge has been given the title of “Most Instagrammable Restaurant in South Carolina.” CHStoday’s own editor — Vagney — even documented the deliciously fancy experience. Protip: If you book your stay on the weekend, catch the Charleston Farmers Market across the street at Marion Square.
This Lowcountry oceanfront community is dreamy. You can check out its rental options + plan your island life adventures. The 2,200 acres of land are home to beautiful beaches, marshes, and a maritime forest. Along with racquet sports, delicious club dining, and a golfer’s paradise, there’s an equestrian center with horses ready to take guests on a trail ride. For another adventure, book a sailboat charter from Bohicket Marina. Protip: Walk or bike to catch the sunset on the North Beach or off Captain Sam’s Inlet. You’ll find dolphins strand feeding there, too.
This luxury beach resort hotel isn’t just known for hosting the 2021 PGA Championship + weddings. The Sanctuary also offers guests a long list of dining options, aqua retreats, solariums and tranquil treatment rooms + 22 tennis courts. Protip: Check out the island interactive map to explore activities.
