The culinary capital of South Carolina, Charleston, is calling. Will you pick up the phone?

Head over and dig into the beauty of BBQ, the life cycle of oysters, and Low Country life as only Charleston can offer!


Located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, Charleston Place has long been revered as the city’s iconic luxury hotel. Tuck in for a 3-night stay for two in a deluxe room at one of the finest hotels in the city. Enjoy daily continental breakfast at Palmetto Café, new guest rooms, rooftop pool, Four Diamond dining, and comprehensive health club. Steps from the historic City Market, renowned restaurants, and boutique shopping, here you can experience the unrivaled charm of the Best City in the World from its best address.


With more than 200 barbecue restaurants, dozens of professional pitmasters, and distinct sauces, South Carolina is prime territory for any barbecue lover. Swig & Swine has won “Best of” awards many times over. They believe that nothing is a substitute for hard work and long hours, so they cook their barbecue low and slow, savoring all the natural juices and locking in that iconic smoked flavor. Enjoy a $50 gift card to use during your visit.


By land and by boat, you’ll get to see, touch, and taste one of the culinary backbones of the Low Country. The tour takes you through the start to finish of what it looks like to grow and ship oysters from the farm to the factory! Starting with a boat ride through the ACE Basin. Visit the nursery where you learn the techniques used to grow oyster babies and help them cultivate into adulthood. You’ll see behind the scenes of the processing at the oyster factory, and saving the best for last, you conclude with an oyster tasting where you’ll be able to try the Low Country Cups with a variety of different sauces and preparations!
