There are some great things in Charleston to see and do. The city has a rich history and art culture that sets it apart from many of the other cities in the South. Their Lowcountry flavor makes Charleston a great place to visit year round. Stay at the Andrew Pinckney Inn and experience some of the great Charleston atmosphere. The Andrew Pinckney Inn is a boutique Charleston hotel located right in the heart of downtown Charleston. It’s a beautiful yellow-colored British West Indies style building built in the 1840s. The Andrew Pinckney has a variety of Charleston vacation packages so you can plan the perfect vacation any time of the year.
One of the best things about going to Charleston is seeing all the great handmade crafts in the city. When you drive to Charleston you will see tons of vendors selling amazing handmade sweetgrass baskets on the side of the road. These sweetgrass baskets have almost become an unofficial symbol of Charleston culture and art. Watching the women weaving these baskets is amazing and if you want to learn how to do it the Charleston Museum will now teach you. The Charleston Museum offers a sweetgrass basket workshop almost once a month where basket maker Sarah Edwards-Hammond will show you how to weave the sweetgrass. The workshop is coming up on February 23rd and again on March 15th 2013 from 9:30 to 1:30. No experience is necessary for these workshops and supplies are included in the price of the workshop. These workshops typically sell out well in advanced so make your reservations for one soon.
The Charleston Museum is located just down the road from the Andrew Pinckney Inn’s beautiful Charleston hotel accommodations. The Andrew Pinckney Inn’s beautiful guest rooms feature plush beds with lavish linens and all the modern amenities you would expect from one of the best hotels in Charleston.
