As November approaches, friends across the country begin to talk about their plans for what has become a popular twist on a closely held tradition: Friendsgiving. Some friend groups have that “one friend” who loves to host and offers up their home every year, while others like to share the love and take turns hosting the festivities. Anyone who’s ever entertained a large family gathering or group of friends knows that it can be a lot of work and sometimes, due to busy lives and busy schedules, no one is available to host special gatherings. When that happens, it’s time to take Friendsgiving on the road, and where better than the #1 City in the USA?

With ever busier lives (raising kids, juggling jobs, powering through grad school, or making a cross country move) it may be getting harder and harder to get the gang together. Take advantage of the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend and combine the festivities with a relaxing getaway to Charleston SC for a little sunshine, ocean air, and all the turkey and stuffing you can eat.

One of the hallmarks of Friendsgiving is the potluck meals that are made with love. By spending the holiday at a luxury vacation home, there is plenty of room in the kitchen for all of the chefs to prepare something special. You might even discover that some luxury beach houses are decked out with high end appliances that trump what you have at home, like 6-burner gas stoves, Subzero refrigerators, double ovens – even ice machines!

If you are a “Type A”  planner you might even consider ordering your groceries in advance of your arrival through  our Concierge Service so you can head straight to sightseeing and skip the trip to the store – anyone who’s ever been to the grocery in the week leading up to Thanksgiving will understand why that could alleviate TONS of stress!

While a holiday road trip to Charleston SC may lead friends away from the places they call home, everyone will feel at home in a spacious vacation rental surrounded by close friends. This year, give thanks while coming together to celebrate a moment in our country’s history in a historic city, surrounded by family, friends, and great food. Then, cheer on your college team in the comfort of your spacious vacation rental. Now, that’s a friendsgiving to remember.
