Because you never want to be sitting home doing nothing.

We are lucky that Charleston is only a three-hour drive away from good old Charlotte. Now, if you make the trip there, then you may be in need of some ideas of things to do. Don’t worry, we did the hard work for you.

Time Travel with an Escape Room: These are so cool! I’ve never done one, but this company has escape rooms themed to stories and history in Charleston. They are live-action and three different ones to choose from. See more here.

Hit the Beach: It’s free and fun. Near the Charleston area beaches such as Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island or even Seabrook are only a short drive away.

See the Sky with Skydiving: I have always wanted to jump out of a plane. I know that’s a weird thing to say, but it seems exhilarating. It would so cool to skydive and see all the water in Charleston. You can see more on it here.

Historic Charleston City Market: I love me some shopping! The City Market is a historic market complex in downtown Charleston and is four blocks long. You can spend at least two hours venturing through this market.

Take a Carriage Ride: Its an old-time type of an affair. You can enjoy sightseeing in a fun way viewing mansions, churches, and parks while learning about their history from your carriage guide.

Rent a Boat: If you are by the water why not cruise the waterways of Charleston. You can rent a boat from several places and have your own adventure. If you want to just join a boat cruise, you can see one here.
