Ladies Trip to Charleston 18

Escape to the Coastal Hub with Your Ladies

When you imagine getting away with your girls, one destination comes to mind: the beach. Add to that culture, nightlife, and one of the best food scenes in the country, and you get the best lady getaway around: Charleston.

Charleston’s draw has long been multi-faceted. Picturesque scenery, including sweeping beaches and streets dotted with structured palmettos, sets a romantic scene for manicured gardens, like the Magnolia Plantation, and neighborhoods like Rainbow Row, where iconic, pastel-hued row houses have long garnered tourist’s attention. 

With a rise in the popularity of girl’s trips, Chucktown’s destination qualifications leveled up. The city has everything you and your ladies could possibly want: beachside getaways with striped umbrellas ready for lounging, boundless boutique shopping with locally-crafted goodies and high-fashion essentials alike, and of course, a food scene that spans craft cocktails and crudités to down-home seafood. 

Rally the tribe and plan your girlfriend getaway to the low country.
