Sprawling southern plantations, historic cobblestone streets, a sun-soaked harbor-side – packed with southern charm, Charleston, South Carolina is nothing short of the perfect spot for an end-of-the-summer getaway.
This is exactly the mini-vacation that 10 top tier editors enjoyed during the debut of Cercone Brown Company’s (CBC) Charleston Experience from September 15th-18th.
Staying in a house on Isle of Palms, just northeast of the city on the water, the participants spent the weekend indulging in relaxation at the beach, local fare from the city’s best restaurants, and unforgettable tourist attractions.
Brands like GMC, Kendall-Jackson, and Sanuk Footwear teamed up with hot spots in Charleston, including Middleton Place Restaurant, The Cocktail Club and Wild Dunes Resort and Husk for a series of experiences.
The Charleston Experience is part of the larger CBC House Programs – a 10-year-old mission developed by CBC. The goal is to provide editors from various national publications with the opportunity to experience brands and products as they’re meant to be enjoyed in memorable and unique settings.
While in Charleston, participants indulged in wine and cheese with Wyndham Rentals, true Southern hospitality from Explore Charleston, a beach day at Wild Dunes, a wine tasting with Jackson Family Wines and more.
During a tour of Middleton Place and Downtown Charleston, editors laced up their Sanuk shoes and later enjoyed a chilled glass of Kendall Jackson at the Saturday night Wine Pairing Dinner.
We can’t believe another fun-filled CBC House program event has come and gone! Lucky for us, there will be many more to come. Don’t forget to use #CBCCharlestonExperience to check out pictures from the weekend.
