Have you ever taken a vacation in the same city that you live? We live in the #1 Vacation Destination in the U.S. so we figured we should take advantage of it and check out one of the top resorts! If you are planning to travel to Charleston or even live in Charleston but want a relaxing trip, I HIGHLY recommend staying at The Beach Club Charleston.
The resort is immaculate and one of the most beautifully decorated hotels I’ve ever seen. It’s also in the perfect location! It’s on Mount Pleasant in Patriots Point. You can see Charleston straight across the harbor as you lay by the pool and you can also see USS Yorktown to the right! The views are to die for!
They have so much to do at the resort from swimming, taking a water barre or beach yoga class, fishing off the Marina, working out in the gym, walking along the pier looking at the boats, making s’mores at the fire pit or having a spa day at the Estuary Spa to eating/drinking at the Fish House, Tiki Bar or the Reel Bar! The entertainment is endless.
If you want to leave the resort there is so much to do in the area too: Fort Sumter, USS Yorktown, exploring downtown Charleston, the South Carolina aquarium, several beautiful beaches, Boone Hall, Magnolia Planation, I could go on and on! I LOVE Charleston! The resort offers a shuttle and water taxi that can take you to downtown Charleston too so you don’t have to worry about driving! Can you tell how much I loved this resort? Now let me tell you about our trip…
We checked in a little after lunch time and went straight to our room. Here is a tour of the beautiful room we stayed in!
We put on our swimsuits and headed straight to the pool! If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while, you know I love a good pool! This one is beautiful!! It has a zero-entry pool which is perfect for the kids but it is also shaped like a T so there are areas that are deeper for swimming or for adults to hang out in! There is also a hot tub and a smaller and quieter pool close by. We spent most of the time in the zero-entry section of the big pool because that’s the best for my toddlers!
We hung out there for a while and took many pictures…
We ordered an early dinner by the pool! It was delicious. I had a chicken sandwich, Judd had a cheeseburger, and the kids had quesadillas.
The kiddos started to get a little tired so we showered and got ready for bed but then we realized how beautiful the sunset was so we put on clothes and rushed downstairs to get pictures. I have been to countries all around the world and I have to say, I’ve never seen sunsets this pretty before! It was unbelievable!! That being said, we took way too many pictures. Judd and I were loving it, the kids not so much. 😉
The next morning, we slept in!! I couldn’t believe how cozy and DARK the room was! The room has one wall that is floor to ceiling windows and a glass door but it has two layers of curtains that blocked out the sun, it was perfect!
We spent the entire next day at the pool and I mean the entire day! We ate breakfast there and lunch!
Ella was feeling extra stylish…
The kiddos got cranky around 4:00 so we cleaned up and drove around Mount Pleasant while they took a nap in their car seats.
We ate dinner at a local pizza shop and then headed back to see the beautiful sunset!
It was the perfect weekend away for us! We loved our stay at The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor and can’t recommend it enough! I told Judd next time that I need a day (or a week) away from everyone, I’m booking at room and coming here!
