Girlfriend Getaway Day One

Check into Kings Courtyard Inn, your charming residence for the next 72 hours. Enjoy staying steps away from all that King Street has to offer and unwind in the property's gorgeous private courtyards.


Light Lunch

Grab a light bite at Basic Kitchen, where you'll find healthy fare including vegan caesar salads, rainbow bowls and avo toast. Basic Kitchen uses seasonal, local produce to create dishes that are nourishing, providing you with the fuel you need to #ExploreCharleston!

Shop King Street

Next stop: King Street, named among the top 10 Best Shopping Streets in America by U.S. News & World Report. Pop into Croghan's Jewel Box and take special note of the Goldbug collection, vintage cameo brooches, golden lockets, and burnished sundries.

Garden Dinner

Local Charleston gal and Vogue editor Alexandra Macon's list of favorites includes dinner in the garden courtyard at Peninsula Grill. Flickering carriage lanterns and candles make for a fabulous al fresco setting.

Sip Under the Stars

After supper, soak up the nighttime skyline while sipping a nightcap beneath the stars at The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits at The Restoration.

Girlfriend Getaway Day Two

Explore the Holy City's confection-colored antebellum mansions. Charleston is a repository for decorative arts and one of North America's most architecturally significant destinations.

Fuel for Fun Ahead

Kick your morning off at The Daily, loved by locals and visitors alike. This neighborhood marketplace offers healthy fare, beverages and goods sourced from local farmers and artisans! INSIDER'S TIP: Try the scrambled egg toast on sourdough. It won't disappoint!

Picture Yourself Here

Waltz through unrivaled 18th century Charlestonian grandeur at the Nathaniel Russell House, where the exuberant wall colors are startling -- particularly when you remember the home is more than 200 years old.

Dine On Upper King

Head to Hall's Chophouse for dinner on upper King Street. At this family-owned steakhouse, the vibe is decidedly see-and-be-seen and the piano playing is live.

Experience Paris in Charleston

Channel your French flair while sipping on creative craft cocktails at Félix, an upper King Street favorite. To satisfy your late night sweet tooth, save room for dessert and order the Apple Trifle or Pot de Crème!

Girlfriend Getaway Day Three

Take today to slow down, unwind, and truly soak up the destination's splendor.

Pedal Around Town

Bikes are one of the best modes of transportation in Charleston. Spend the morning pedaling past the destination's many charms with beach cruiser rentals from Affordabike Bicycle Shop.

Say Ahhh...

Rejuvenate and replenish amid the 14-foot vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and rustic beauty of Wentworth Spa, the historic stables-turned-luxury spa located in the garden of the Wentworth Mansion.

Kiss the Sky

See the Holy City skyline from the water with a harbor cruise aboard the 84-foot, three mast, wooden Schooner Pride. As the sun sets on this blissful day, your visit to Charleston draws to a close...for now. We will -- we are sure -- see you again soon.
