    Why You Should Visit Charleston This Season

    Visit Charleston Wake up to the aroma of fresh coffee and a true southern breakfast. Each morning the Governor’s House Inn features a new menu and special items like banana French toast strata with Amaretto sauce or homemade quiche. You’re guaranteed to start your holiday getaway the right way with this gourmet breakfast. Visit Charleston this season and enjoy all the deliciousness in the elegant dining room at the Governor’s House Inn, dine on the verandah or in your guest room. It’s all about you this season! Once you have filled your belly, take a horse-drawn carriage tour through the Historic District. When you visit Charleston, this is an activity that cannot be missed! Palmetto Carriage Works, the oldest carriage tour company in Charleston, offers historic tours of the residential district. They have developed the greatest carriage experience in the city. A Palmetto Carriage tour blends knowledge, humor, wit and history. It’s a seamless fusion of 19th century conveyance in a 21st century city! You will experience 25 to 30 blocks of Charleston’s historic downtown district, see houses, gardens, mansions, churches and parks and learn about the buildings, history, architecture, flora and people that make up the “Holy City.” This is the best way to see all that Charleston has to offer. If you should tire after a day touring the city, you can return for Lowcountry Afternoon Tea at the Governor’s House Inn. This is a southern tradition. Tea in the afternoon refreshes the soul and indulges the senses. Pair that with house-made sweets and savories and it just doesn’t get any better…well, until the evening. After a nap in one of our guest rooms, meet and greet other guests while enjoying a glass of wine and some of Charleston’s finest cheeses. Because you deserve to relax, indulge in a glass or two of chilled champagne. If you’d like a romantic evening alone with your significant other, try the treats on the verandah, by the fireplace or in your guest room. Of course, for the perfect end to the perfect day in Charleston, we suggest evening sherry in our parlor. You can share a private moment, finish a novel or make new acquaintances.
