Every day my guests ask for suggestions for things to do. I always suggest that they get out on the water. One great way to do that is with a water tour with the folks at Charleston Tours. A sunset cruise on the Schooner Pride will create a memory that will last a lifetime.

A harbor cruise on the Carolina Belle provides sun and salt air with beautiful panoramic views of the Battery and Fort Sumter. I recently attended a business meeting on the Carolina Belle, and the in-house catering was exceptional! I’m still dreaming about that shrimp gazpacho! Yum!!!! Contact the good folks at Charleston Tours.

Anything & Everything Photography

I trust you are enjoying the beautiful photography on these pages, compliments of Diana Isaac, owner of Anything & Everything Photography. Call Diana to document your next special event or wedding!

Gibbes Museum of Art

Always a great respite in the middle of a hot summer day!

Magnolia Gardens

If I could only see one garden on my trip to Charleston, it would be Magnolia Plantation, the only remaining “Romantic Garden” in the United States.

Toast! Restaurant

Toast! is located at 155 Meeting Street, right where your tour begins. Arrive early for a rich cup of coffee ground fresh daily before your tour or a delicious breakfast or lunch. I recommend the Tropical Toast for a great morning starter!
