FUEL FOR THE DAY

Rise & shine! Fuel for the day ahead at The Restoration's Instagram-worthy Rise Coffee Bar, which has teamed up with Springbok Coffee, a local specialty coffee roaster, to bring you the finest coffee in town. INSIDER TIP: The Rosemary Honey Latte never disappoints.

PEER INTO AN ANTEBELLUM MANSION

Charleston is home to an eye-popping array of historic mansions. Although most are privately owned, the Nathaniel Russell House, which was built in 1808 and is widely recognized as one of America's more important neoclassical dwellings, has been converted into a public museum.

PICK UP SOUVENIRS

Pick up a set of Sacred Bird & Butterfly porcelain teacups. The original setting of the handsome 17th century porcelain is on display at the Nathaniel Russell House. Reproductions of this dinnerware and other noted antiques are found at the Historic Charleston Foundation City Market Shop.

ENJOY FARM-TO-TABLE FARE

Head back to The Restoration and straight to The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits, the hotel's very own farm-to-table restaurant, that celebrates the bounty of fresh ingredients sourced directly from local purveyors, and provides one of the best Holy City skyline views. INSIDER'S TIP: Don't miss Tikis & Tacos on Tuesdays!

Luxurious Getaway Day Two

Savor the present before taking a trip back in time and searching for Charleston treasures.

START SLOW

Swing by The Rise for a latte to-go, then head to The Library to sip and savor a slow morning. Get lost in your favorite book or find inspiration in a vintage art history guide hand picked from the antique book collection.

TRANSPORT BACK IN TIME

Venture to Drayton Hall, which is widely considered the finest example of Georgian Palladian architecture in North America. Untouched by fad or fashion, the house museum stands as an example of meticulous preservation and has neither running water nor electricity.

SEARCH FOR TREASURE

Situated just a short stroll from The Restoration is Charleston's treasure trove, Croghan's Jewel Box. Browse through antique treasures and pick up a gilded bug from the stunning Goldbug Collection.

TASTE REINVENTED SOUTHERN CUISINE

"See and be seen" at Slightly North of Broad, Charleston's version of the power broker's lunch spot famously referred to by the acronym SNOB. This spot is a favorite among locals and visitors alike for their fill of Lowcountry cuisine.

TREAT YOURSELF

Indulge in a deep tissue massage or organic body scrub via The Amethyst In-Room Spa Services before heading to Sunday brunch at The Watch, featuring live music along with sweet praline french toast and savory biscuits and gravy.

Hop on The Restoration's complimentary bicycles and bike your way through Charleston's cobblestone streets, spotting overflowing window boxes and four-legged friends proudly sauntering their way around the Holy City.

SET SAIL

Set sail aboard the Schooner Pride and see Charleston from a completely new perspective. Cheers over champagne or a glass of rosé and soak up some vitamin sea while saying hello to flippered friends swimming nearby.

CONTINUE YOUR CULINARY EXPLORATION

High Cotton’s menu comes to life with Lowcountry favorites such as buttermilk fried oysters and Lowcountry boil in a classic Charleston setting complete with heart pine floors and antique brick.
