Disconnect to Reconnect: Fun Activities to Explore in Charleston
We have many days of warm weather and bright sunny skies right around the corner with spring and summer seasons quickly approaching. It’s time to start planning fun activities to do with family and friends. Disconnecting from technology to reconnect with the people that matter most makes for creating memories that last a lifetime!
Here are a list of activities you can do in Charleston that would be fun to attend with friends. We challenge you to spend at least one day a week technology-free. Turn off those cell phones, log out of your social media accounts, and give your loved ones your undivided attention. Technology can be a huge distraction without even realizing it, so plan to do a fun activity completely eliminating technology so you can make the most of the experience.
There are several paddle boarding options in Charleston, from paddle boarding in Shem Creek, to paddle boarding in the Harbor downtown.
Festival of Houses and Gardens
Charleston’s historic district is home to houses with distinctive architecture and award-winning gardens. Every spring in March and April the Festival of Houses and Gardens provides a rare opportunity to tour these beautiful private residencies.
A horse drawn carriage ride through historic downtown can be a great way to learn more about the history of Charleston. If you take a stroll down Market Street, you’ll be sure to find several carriage ride options.
Enjoy beautiful views of the Charleston harbor from the water by taking a fancy dinner cruise with a friend. Dinner cruises are nice if you want to get dressed up and enjoy nice music, delicious food, and a relaxing ride.
