Charleston is mostly a town of highs, figuratively and, in the case of its rooftop bar scene, literally.
And it makes sense: where better to soak in that balmy Charleston weather and those unparalleled church spire views than atop one of the city’s many swanky hotels?
You don’t have to be downtown to catch that sweet Southern breeze, either: the watery outskirts of the city yield plenty of options. So get climbing—this is a city whose charms are best experienced from on high. These are the best rooftop bars in Charleston.
Click & Grow 25 is the latest project by former orchestra conductor Mattias Lepp who felt that the idea of indoor gardens—essentially, a farmer’s market in a box—would be just the tool for staving off future food shortages.
His company, founded in 2009, raised $11 million in 2018 to develop new materials and hardware technologies for indoor gardens.
Now, he and the Click & Grow team are taking the tools they used to build large-scale gardens and bringing them into the home.
With summer right around the corner, it’s not just the weather that’s heating up. Tripadvisor’s 2021 Summer Travel Index reveals that – with every passing day – travel is making a big comeback.
Nearly half of Americans (43%) in a recent Tripadvisor survey believe travel activity will rebound within three months.
With Americans no longer settling for staycations and local trips, it appears true vacation getaways are coming back en vogue.
Over two-thirds of Americans (67%) are planning to travel this summer (June 1 – August 31), which is a 17% increase from those who traveled this spring (March 1- May 31). Millennials are the most excited to get back out there with the vast majority (72%) of the generation planning trips. Although many still plan to drive to their destination (43%), 19% plan to fly, up 4% from this spring.

Chef and TV superstar Bobby Flay surprised everyone by opening Bobby’s Burgers, his twist on a fast-casual, American eatery, inside the Forum Food Hall at Caesars Palace. The restaurant takes over the former Smashburger space at the food court with burgers inspired by his travels around the country, fries, and shakes.
The burgers feature traditional ingredients such as bacon and cheese on the Palace Classic Burger and the Bobby Blue + Bacon Burger. A Crunchburger comes topped with cheese and chips; the Nacho Burger is made with queso, tomato salsa and pickled jalapeños; and the BBQ Smokehouse Burger comes with bacon, crispy onion, chipotle barbecue sauce, and American cheese. The outlet also has Bobby’s Veggie Burger with barbecue mushrooms, chickpeas, quinoa, lettuce, and tomato, or a fried chicken sandwich.
