I love a good nature walk. Which is why I also love Magnolia Plantation and Gardens! Founded in 1676, the extensive gardens here are the Oldest Romantic Gardens in the country. Filled with local flowers for all seasons and beautiful Audubon trails, nothing says a Charleston Winter like a stroll through Magnolia Plantation.
For a lovely fresh dinner, check out the Macintosh, just a few blocks away from the hotel. Favorite mains mix with perennial, local sides to make for flavorful dishes that will linger on your tongue, mind, and heart! Step upstairs afterward to the Cocktail Club for a drink – I highly recommend sharing a signature punch bowl!

There are a lot of great things going on in the Elliotborough neighborhood located northwest of the hotel. The area retains an authentic charm that is popular with locals. One of my favorite restaurants is Chez Nous, a cozy Mediterranean gem tucked down a side alley off Coming Street. The short but ever-changing daily menu draws inspiration from the coastal cuisines of Spain, France and Italy. For a casual bite, Five Loaves Cafe serves American classics made with quality local ingredients. Their menu is friendly to vegetarian and gluten free diets. For a fun night out away from the crowds, Elliotborough Mini Bar offers bingo, open mic, live music and more!
