Traveling Ink was born out of a joint love for travel and the desire to celebrate the historic, art-filled, natural beauty of the city Charlestonians call home. The site's primary purpose is to help people enjoy Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry. The goal is to do that by helping with the smallest suggestion for a single traveler to helping plan an entire vacation for a large family or group.
The owner of Traveling Ink has taken her experience in the travel and tourism industry and paired it with ongoing first-hand field research to offer up up-to-date information on local tours, attractions, restaurants, and events. The recommendations she posts on the site are ones she would eagerly give to her own family and friends visiting the city, and the attractions featured on the site are not paid advertisers or members, but rather trusted affiliates. Travelers can be confident that they will find straight forward information for everything from historic carriage tours, to the oldest tourist attraction in South Carolina (Magnolia Plantation & Gardens), to soaking up the sun on one of our beautiful waterways via a surf lesson or a daily tour with Charleston Harbor Tours.
Don't wait until you arrive to plan your itinerary only to find an attraction is out of season or tickets for your tour of preference are sold out. Travelers and locals alike can use the information on the site to plan a top-notch vacation or weekend enjoying the sites. And if you are too busy to read what we have to offer (much less sift through hundreds of traveler reviews), let Traveling Ink take over the planning and tour reservations for you. Fill out our simple contact form to ask a question or set-up arrangements for us to do the research and planning for you.
