One Day Only - Free Carriage Tours for Locals

As long as Traveling Ink has been recommending tours and attractions in Charleston, I've been recommending historic carriage tours as a great way to see the city. January 27th, locals can join in on the fun. Palmetto Carriage Works will be hosting a free carriage tour event to say thank you to locals for their support throughout the year.


Camp Happy Days 5th Annual Bed Race

This past weekend, Camp Happy Days took over a section of Hampton Park in downtown Charleston for one of the more unique fundraisers you'll encounter, the Charleston Bed Race. In its fifth year, the Bed Race boasted a jump castle, a giant stingray, a beer garden, delicious eats from Cilantro's Rolling Gourmet and Kickin' Chicken, the always refreshing Italian Ice and King of Pops popsicles, and jams from Mix 96 radio station...and that's not even the REAL reason we came out. The highlight of the day was of course the homemade "beds" teams created to race head to head for the Charleston Bed Race trophy and to help raise money for kids kickin' cancer in South Carolina.


Your Water Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It...

This week the Traveling Ink team had the pleasure of meeting the folks at Water Mission (formerly Water Missions International, a local nonprofit organization that aids third-world countries impacted by the global water crisis. As a nonprofit engineering organization with a Christian focus, Water Mission provides clean drinking water, sanitation, and the Living Water to communities in need.


Volunteering at the SC Aquarium

There’s nothing like seeing a kid who, two seconds before, was recoiling in disgust work up the gumption to reach out a tentative hand and touch the snake reclining on your arm. Usually their reaction is either one of relief (whew—I made it out safely, now I can check that off my list of dangers to face), or one of surprise (wow—it isn’t slimy!).

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
