This post is brought to you in partnership with the South Carolina Aquarium.
Earlier this week, we partnered with the South Carolina Aquarium to give away a free weekend getaway for two to Charleston, South Carolina including:
- 2 general admission tickets to the South Carolina Aquarium
- 2 nights at the Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms
- Dinner for 2 at Grace & Grit
And the lucky winner of this giveaway is… Hilary B.!
Hilary and her guest will get to tour the beautiful aquarium, enjoy locally caught shrimp and grits at a quintessential Lowcountry restaurant and enjoy a two-night stay at the wildly luxurious Wild Dunes Resort (with its AAA Four-Diamond Rated Boardwalk Inn and over 1,600 acres of pure oceanfront bliss).
Thinking about booking your own weekend trip to Charleston?
We’ve written about what an amazing travel destination Charleston, South Carolina is in the past. One of the top tourist destinations in the U.S., Charleston houses some of the most iconic historic sites — and some of the most incredible Southern cuisine — in the Carolinas.
Charleston is also home to the South Carolina Aquarium. A must-see destination on any visit to Charleston, South Carolina, the aquarium can be walked through at your own pace.
There are two touch tanks with horseshoe crabs, urchins, sea stars, sharks and stingrays where visitors can interact hands-on with the aquarium’s inhabitants. If guided learning is more your thing, you may want to check out the daily dive shows and animal encounters, where trainers discuss animal facts and preservation methods.
On top of its educational and entertainment factors, the South Carolina Aquarium also works to conserve and protect endangered animals. Its Sea Turtle Care Center allows visitors to witness veterinarians caring for injured sea turtles with medicine, nutrition and therapy before practicing their own bedside manner at simulated medical centers.
