Erin from Newtown, Connecticut asked


10 women in their mid-thirties traveling from all over the US to stay in Charleston for a 3 day weekend. We are staying on King Street and looking for the best group activities. Any and all recommendations are welcome.

Also, any recommendations for a private chef/catering business for a home cooked meal at home?

You should plan cocktails on the rooftop of Vendue Inn, not sure if you can make reservations, so just plan on going early in the afternoon for ten people.

You could easily find a chef/catering/food truck- many places to look for home cooking somewhere on the internet,

For an evening out I would look into R. Kitchen / Rutledge Kitchen, it's a tiny restaurant, maybe you could make a reservation for their patio.  You have to leave a message and make a reservation. It's a great little under the radar place.

Late night The Butcher and the Bee is open and it's BYOB!

Harris Teeter  grocery store is where you should buy beer and wine for the house.

A spa day is always good...try Charleston Place Hotel.  A walking tour of historic Charleston is also a fun activity...try Charleston Footprints.  As far as food goes, try to get a reservation at either Husk or its sister restaurant McCrady's.

Charleston is a really fun place for a "girls weekend." Here are a couple of ideas:

Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre and Shoppe- They have hilarious whodunit shows along with drinks, appetizers, and desserts. 

Wild Blue Ropes- Depending on how adventurous your group is, you may be interested in this ropes course. They have different courses for different abilities and offer adult parties.

White Point Garden- Nice seaside park for a bike ride, a picnic ,or a stroll. There are some historic walking tours that stop here to if you are a history buff.

Charleston Water Taxi- This is a great and affordable way to sight-see, especially if you don't have a car. It's $10 for a day pass. Be aware that they water taxis are seasonal.

Mira Winery- Great place for wine tasting, and really close to King St.

Earthling Day Spa & Pilates- Go for a mani, pedi, massage, or facial. They also offer spa treatments from around the world, as well as private pilates classes for groups.

Tease Blow Dry Bar- They host fun beauty parties with wine and music, a perfect stop before going out for the evening.

The Gin Joint- Unique cocktail bar.

I don't have experience with the catering in Chalreston, but I've heard good things about Caviar & Bananas and Cru Cafe.

I hope this helps get you started, you are going to have a blast!

Happy travels!
