Planning the Perfect Girls Weekend in Charleston, SC

November 2, 2020 by Brittani / Category: Charleston, Girls' Weekend

Gather the girlfriends and take a weekend trip to the Holy City! You can let loose with the ladies or just relax and revel in the city’s southern charm. Charleston offers the best of both worlds. Here are a few ways to plan the perfect girls’ weekend in Charleston, SC!

FLOAT, PEDAL & PARTY

Our pedal-cruises are the best way to get out and enjoy the waters of the Lowcountry. If you are looking to take one of the best boat tours in Charleston SC, look no further because Saltwater Cycle is it! All of our cruises are BYOB and stay out on the water for 1 hour and 40 minutes! You can book individual seats or reserve the entire boat for a private cruise. With two inward facing rows of pedal stations and a large benched seating area at the front of the boat, there is plenty of room for pedaling, walking, dancing and visiting throughout the cruise.

EXPLORE THE CHARLESTON CULINARY SCENE

Charleston, being famous for its food, has a wide variety of dining options. Whether you’re looking for seafood, BBQ to sipping craft cocktails and savoring one-of-a-kind flavor combinations from world-class chefs. Or perhaps you’d prefer a waterfront view. Make the short trek over the Ravenel Bridge to Mt. Pleasant and visit Shem Creek, where an eclectic collection of restaurants is waiting to serve you. Sit on an outdoor patio while you wine and dine—and if you’re lucky enough you might even catch a glimpse of some dolphin visitors.

HAVE A NIGHT ON THE TOWN

Charleston’s nightlife is almost as revered as its culinary scene. The options are endless. Live music is everywhere, and dance clubs often feature local DJs who really know how to spin. Start the night off on the south side of the peninsula, bar hopping around Market Street and East Bay. Keep the night going by taking a bike taxi (or two) to Upper King Street where an amazing assortment of innovative bars awaits.
