With a name like the Holy City, it would be a sin if Charleston didn’t offer a bounty of things to do on Easter Sunday! Whether you’re looking for something for the whole family or just you and a couple of friends, we’ve got a few events up our sleeves that will be sure to get you in the Easter spirit this year. So, break out the pastel-colored pants, make some room in those baskets, and check out these Easter events that will have tourists wanting to move to the Lowcountry and natives falling in love with it all over again! The top 3 ways to make the most of your Charleston Easter:
Join the “Eggstravaganza”! – If you want the true Charleston experience this Easter, you ought to bring the family to the city’s official egg hunt, a long-standing Holy City tradition. On the 31st of March, Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark, will be hosting their classic egg hunt for three different age groups. Once all the eggs are gathered from the centuries-old gardens, families will head over to the Plantation Stableyards to dye them! With an Egg Roll, an Egg Toss, and children’s story-time, this might just become a family tradition.
That's not just any Hat – What would a Charleston Easter be without the city’s most lovable icons, the ultimate symbol of Southern gentility and class, the illustrious “Hat Ladies”? For their 17th annual Easter Promenade, this fabulous group of women will be strolling down Broad and Meeting Streets in small groups from 11-11:30am on Saturday, March 31st, wishing all a happy and healthy holiday. If you’re out and about on Saturday, you’re bound to be wrapped up in the fanfare of these gregarious girls.
Breaking bread – Easter and brunch go together like wainscoting and wood floors (sorry, as Charleston real estate developers, we couldn’t resist!). Considering how many fantastic Lowcountry restaurants there are to choose from, you’re making a big mistake if you plan on eating in on Sunday. For the procrastinators out there who haven’t yet made brunch reservations for the big day, it will be tough to get seats at many of the popular restaurants, but there’s still hope. If you head out to The Boathouse at Breach Inlet on Isle of Palms, you’ll still be able to snag a table, and if you plan on spending your Easter in Mt. Pleasant, the Old Village Post House is offering a special brunch menu from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Easter Sunday. (Menu details coming soon, stay tuned!)
So, there you have it! If you’ve already got plans to visit the Holy City this weekend, or if our list has swayed you to schedule a trip, start by choosing a luxury vacation rental for your next visit to Charleston, SC!
