As we close the chapter of 2018, we start 2019 with a clean slate and a fresh start for new resolutions. Charleston’s mild winter climate and abundance of historical and legendary landmarks, make it easy to fulfill bucket list desires. Whether you prefer to focus on overall wellness or trying new cuisines, the Lowcountry is the place to conquer a variety of goals.
- Work your fitness routine into the outdoors—Charleston provides a beautiful natural backdrop for running, walking, and biking. Ditch the treadmill and hit the pavement on the Ravenel Bridge for breathtaking views of the city and harbor. Or, head to Sullivan’s Island or Isle of Palms for a walk on the beach. If you’re looking to mix history with fitness, try a walking tour or rent a bike and explore the historic district. For those who love to run, our masterful concierge team can arrange a jogging route for you to enjoy the sites and history while burning calories.
- Experience new dishes and flavors—It’s no secret that Charleston is home to some of the best restaurants and bars in the country. The diverse culinary scene has provided visitors and locals the opportunity to indulge in daring dishes. A great way to explore new restaurants is to partake in Charleston Restaurant Week. But, if you’re looking for a truly unique experience, we suggest the tasting menu with wine pairings at Charleston Grill.
- Discover historical sites outside of Charleston—A change of scenery does the body and mind good. Hop in the car and wander the exquisite gardens found merely 20 miles away at Middleton Place or Magnolia Plantation. Or, for a one-of-a-kind experience, visit the only tea plantation in North America at Charleston Tea Plantation. If you’re without transportation, our team can arrange a private driver for you to enjoy the sites at your leisure.
- Indulge in taking care of yourself—Self-care is more than just a buzzword, so be sure to schedule in some time for yourself. Plan a spa day and indulge in a restorative treatment at The Spa, or schedule a staycation and find your inner-peace in a private yoga session or bask in our rooftop horizon edge pool or Jacuzzi. Whatever you choose, rest and relaxation can always be found at our hotel.
This year, vow to conquer your resolutions in Charleston. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Lowcountry, explore what’s in your very own backyard. And if you’re a visitor, we invite you to bask in all we have to offer. From historical landmarks and picturesque views to culinary experiences and overall wellbeing, we are in the center of it all.
