I have a milestone birthday coming up right after Christmas. My husband and I are considering a getaway in Charleston, SC the week of December 26. I’ve never been, and he hasn’t visited in a decade or more. I’ve looked at older questions about the area, but am hoping for some more recent information about hotels, restaurants, and our tentative itinerary. [more inside]

In a few weeks my raggedy crew is making our annual pilgrimage to Charleston to celebrate our friend's birthday. This year we've coalesced around the idea of adding a "pamper day" to our routine and it's fallen on me to plan. The problem: we're a granola group that's better versed in setting up tents than scheduling spa treatments. Can you help me plan an awesome pamper day? Snowflakes inside. [more inside]

My teenage (14) daughter and I are going to a wedding in Charleston. Yay! The wedding is on a Friday, but since school is out for us part of the next week we thought we'd make a vacation of it! So we'll have Saturday through Monday free, leaving on Tuesday. What's good to do with a teenager in and around Charleston, SC? Are there any amusement parks or other cool tourist attractions within say a 3 hour drive of Charleston? Any teen-focuses Charleston-ish recommendations would be appreciated!

Can't take the cold Northeast and wonder if Charleston would work? My husband and I recently moved from Los Angeles to the Eastern shore of Ct. for a variety of reasons mainly cost of living and seeking a closer knit community. Now that we have experienced a cold winter ( it's just starting!) we see that it isn't for us. Weather is a big deal and we thought we could handle it but the being stuck indoors, the layers of clothes, the desire to hibernate are all getting to us pretty quick. [more inside]

Let's say you're looking for a band to play at a conference for 500 river and watershed activists in Charleston, South Carolina in June. Let's also say you're doing this from Portland, Oregon and know next to nothing about the music scene in that beautiful coastal city. Finally, let's say that your fellow staff members have barred you from booking another bluegrass band ever again, yet this isn't exactly a Top 40/cover band crowd. What's a soul to do?

What are your recommendations for a young couple spending a week in Charleston, SC? We are in our late 20s-early 30s, and enjoy historic sites, museums, good restaurants, shopping, etc. We are definitely more urban vacationers, and not so much into beaches, nature walks, or parties. [more inside]
