The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hit for Par in Charleston


5. An Oddball Day

Bill Murray is a partial owner of the Charleston RiverDogs, the Yankees' single-A farm team. From April to September, enjoy fireworks on Fridays, giveaways on Saturdays, and the regional specialty snack — boiled peanuts — anytime.

In the off-season, visit the Charleston Tea Plantation: The only place in America where the leaves are still grown, the plantation has 320 varieties of plants and hundreds of thousands of tea bushes. Now owned by the tea-making Bigelow family, the plantation just reopened after a three-year renovation and boasts a tour, formal tea gardens, and a tasting room.
