Artsy Adventure Day 1

Your residence for the next 72 hours will be at The Vendue, a boutique hotel that re-opened in the spring of 2014 with creative flair. The building dates back to the 1780s but the decor is distinctively contemporary with more than 300 original pieces of art throughout the hotel.

Details

Find Inspiration at The Gibbes

Explore the Lowcountry's contemporary art scene at The Gibbes Museum, home to the premier collection of American art that incorporates the story of Charleston.

Hit the Shops

Hit King Street to shop like a local. At Hampden Clothing, the collection of avant-garde designers has caught the eye of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, while the waiting lounge with a fully-stocked bar is a hit with husbands everywhere.

Unwind Over Dinner

Unwind and enjoy a meal at Revival, the restaurant situated in your hotel. No matter your order, you'll enjoy a pretty plate as the restaurant melds creative flair into each dish.

Artsy Adventure Day 2

Spend your day indulging in art, tasting fresh fare and finding a new book, or two, or more.

Pick Up a New Read

Look for a blue bicycle with a stack of books and step inside Blue Bicycle Books on King Street. The narrow façade belies a deep trove of books -- more than 50,000 volumes -- including the largest collection of used, rare and new Charleston material.

Enjoy a Hearty Lunch

Head to Mercantile And Mash, the gastropub concept housed in the historic Cigar Factory, for delicious lunch options from local vendors who serve everything from sandwiches and charcuterie to sushi.

Find Your Muse

Meet local artists, make a studio visit or meet the top curators in Charleston during a customized gallery tour with Canvas Charleston.

Wine and Dine

Head to dinner at Hall's Chophouse, the family-owned steakhouse located on upper King Street that is known for its "see and be seen" scene. The menu features a variety of lavishly prepared steaks so come hungry.

Artsy Adventure Day 3

For your last day, live like a local in Charleston. Get around on our preferred method of transportation, see art made by those close to the community and enjoy meals made with local ingredients.

Grab Some Wheels

Pedal through Charleston's historic and hip neighborhoods on two wheels with Charleston Bicycle Tours. Pedal across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the western hemisphere, for a unique bird's eye view of the harbor.

Enjoy Lunch on the Water

Double back downtown to Fleet Landing, the only restaurant situated over the harbor. Housed in a 1940s retired naval building with panoramic views of the water, Fleet Landing serves fresh seafood in a casual "maritime chic" atmosphere.

Browse Local Art

Continue your cultural exploration on Broad Street at the Corrigan Gallery. The gallery is known for housing works that represent the character of Charleston with a nontraditional contemporary flair.

Eat Like a Locavore

Celebrate your last evening in town with southern fusion fare at The Grocery. The menu is ordered by portion size starting with "snacks" and leads up to "plates" and "table" options, so have fun trying a range of dishes.
