Our goal is for you to experience the very best vacation and we have provided this non-bias list of local "Things to Do" based on our experiences and recommendations. We want you, our valued guests, to have a happy holiday away from home without the guessing game of "what's fun to do around here?". Here is a list of restaurants, organized by location since there are so many and activities with links to their sites for your convenience. We recommend picking up a Charleston City Paper, a local free publication that comes out every Wednesday with all the happenings for the week including an extensive live music listing. As always, if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us!
