As spring begins to warm up, you may already find yourself feeling restless. When the day-to-day grind starts to get you down, rest assured that you can get away from it all without even leaving the great state of South Carolina!
We've put together three perfect options for gorgeous weekend getaways in South Carolina. They won't take you too far from home... or put too big of a dent in your budget.
Searching for Some Serious Peace and Quiet?
Nestled away near the mountains in Upstate South Carolina, the Red Horse Inn is just outside Landrum and offers serene views of the Blue Ridge Mountains for the perfect quiet, romantic weekend getaway for two.
While Bed-and-Breakfasts often have guests dining at a communal table in the mornings, the Red Horse Inn understands that sometimes, you just want to eat your breakfast in total peace. Your morning meal will be brought to your room, providing that "breakfast in bed" experience. You'll be surrounded by beautiful views that offer plenty of trails to explore. You can also head into Landrum's Historic Downtown or take a quick drive to Travelers Rest, whose up-and-coming revitalization has them topping must-visit lists for South Carolina.
If you're the type who likes to try those out-of-the-way adventures that only locals know about, check out The Red Horse Adventures packages! They'll design the perfect day-out excursion for you and your loved one to make the most of the Upstate's beautiful Blue Ridge Foothills.
Need a Kid-Friendly Getaway? Consider Columbia!
Columbia may be most famously known as our state capitol, but it's also a kid-friendly vacation destination that is a quick drive from just about anywhere in the state! If you're searching for a family weekend designed to keep kids interested, involved, and having fun, you can't pick a better spot than Columbia. Here are our suggestions for family activities that will be great fun for both youngsters and the young-at-heart:
- EDVenture is one of the largest children's museums in the Southeast, and you could spend a whole day enjoying hands-on exhibits that help your kids learn through play and exploration.
- Riverbanks Zoo has been repeatedly voted one of the best zoos in the country, and it's high time you enjoyed a visit to see giraffes, kangaroos, koalas, river otters, and more! The zoo even includes the Riverbanks Farm, an interactive exhibit where your little ones will get up-close and personal with cows, goats, and other fascinating creatures.
- No visit to Columbia is complete without a trip to the South Carolina State Museum! You won't just learn about our state's history; you will also have a chance to enjoy the amazing Planetarium and see temporary exhibits like Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure!
For families searching for a weekend of fun, Columbia has plenty to keep your kids interested from the moment you arrive until it's time to head back home.
Daydreaming About a Weekend on the Beach? Charleston Has You Covered.
Most guides to Charleston getaways suggest staying in downtown hotels, but to cut down on how much you pay for accommodations without losing out on access to the beach, stay in Mt. Pleasant.
Situated just north of the Holy City, Mt. Pleasant offers an ideal central location for visitors planning to spend some time at the beach and also visit Charleston attractions like the South Carolina Aquarium or the Fort Sumter Tour.
If you're more interested in those blissful waves than you are in the city, Isle of Palms has beautiful beach rental houses where you can relax just steps from the sand.
Want to know one essential trick for a weekend spent taking it slow by the ocean? Golf cart rentals! Perfect for a getaway for two or even to help your whole family get around, golf carts are common in places like Sullivan's Island or Isle of Palms, and we have them available! Just let us know how many you need and when you'll need them, and we'll do the rest. We can even provide you with delivery, helping you simplify your vacation planning!
