    Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Travel Plans

    Thanksgiving is a holiday steeped in tradition—the Macy’s parade, turkey, trimmings, family, football and pumpkin pie. We adore the warmth of it all and so do you, but sometimes you just need a change.

    If you are seeking a change of pace, Charleston may be the answer. An increasing number of local restaurants are hosting Thanksgiving meals. The following are just a few of the delicious dining establishments who participated in 2014:

    • – Charleston Grill
    • – Hall’s Chophouse
    • – High Cotton
    • – Magnolia’s
    • – Oak Steakhouse
    • – Poogan’s Porch
    • – Virginia’s on King

    Stay tuned for special Thanksgiving 2015 menus. We will be sharing our favorites on Facebook and Twitter.

    After you’ve enjoyed a beautiful meal (and someone else has done the dishes), you may want to fill the weekend with other holiday season festivities. Most downtown retailers are open for Black Friday, and many local retailers will have Small Business Saturday specials as well. The Holiday Festival of Lights is also open every evening after November 13th.

    If you are planning ahead to keep things simple, online booking is available for your convenience, or you can call our innkeeper (800-720-9812) to book your accommodations over the phone.

    *UPDATE 10/14/15 – The 38th Annual Turkey Day Run is scheduled for Thursday, November 26th. The event starts at 9:00am, and with free food, drinks and family activities, it is sure to be a lot of fun! Visit turkeydayrun.com for details.

    *UPDATE 11/18/15 – Several downtown restaurants still have Thanksgiving Day tables available. Visit OpenTable.com for details.
