Award-winning restaurants, vibrant nightlife, stunning waterfront views, and amazing boutique shopping? It’s no wonder that Charleston makes the Travel + Leisure list of best American cities for girlfriend getaways! We’ve been inspired to put together our top picks for planning the perfect Girlfriend Getaway this spring at Zero George in Charleston.
Take a leisurely bike ride through the historic district and enjoy its incomparable array of historic houses, churches, streets, and alleyways. Pause for a frozen treat at Belgian Gelato, enjoy the river views at beautiful Waterfront Park, and drop by the City Gallery to take in the current art exhibit! Be sure to return to Zero George by 5 pm for the complimentary wine + cheese hour at the main piazza bar designed as a gathering place for the hotel, featuring intimate seating areas, lazily spinning ceiling fans and the Charleston sea breeze.
Next attend a private class and dinner with Zero Café + Bar’s Executive Chef and Chopped champion Vinson Petrillo. Our Cooking School was recently distinguished by FOOD + WINE as offering one of the best new cooking classes in the world. Your class takes place in the chef’s kitchen and includes a three-course dinner and wine pairings.
But the day’s not over yet! Relax and unwind with an afternoon on Sullivan’s Island, just a scenic 20-minute ride over the Cooper River. No worries about logistics: with our car service to the island and supply of guest essentials such as beach chairs and sunscreen, we’ll do all the work for you!
After sunset drinks, enjoy a locally sourced dinner prepared by our Easton Porter Group Head Chef Amalia Scatena at our sister restaurant Cannon Green Charleston. For a nightcap, be sure not to miss out on the vibrant night life around the corner on Upper King Street: The Rarebit, Stars, and Closed for Business are a few of our favorite bars that await you. On your final day in Charleston, let our concierge help you choose among an array of bespoke activities such as architecture tours, excursions to historic plantations, or our harbor yacht sail.
So what are you waiting for? Book your girlfriend getaway at Zero George today and kick-start your weekend of discovery and excitement in the nation’s most charming and vibrant city!
