Rich history, unique culture, and antebellum charm make Charleston, South Carolina, one of America's most beautiful cities. Touring the French Quarter and Battery districts is a must, whether via walking tour or horse-drawn carriage. Both provide wonderful examples of the architecture, history, style, and cuisine that the city is renowned for. Old forts, churches, and plantations are also popular attractions in and around the city, providing insight into the region's singular history still influencing its culture today. The city's residents create a welcoming atmosphere; it's often voted one of the friendliest cities in America. If you've never been, this is your chance. If you have, you won't need any convincing from us. We'll be staying at the Francis Marion Hotel, an elegantly restored 1920s-style hotel near many of the historic attractions you'll want to check out.
You deserve a break! That’s why we carefully select and plan premium after-class Group Activities for conference attendees and their guests. It's true what they say, all work and no play is never a good plan! So join the fun, experience something unique, make new connections, or reunite with old friends. This is your vacation—we want you to enjoy every moment!

Built in the 1920s and restored in 1996 with National Trust for Historic Preservation funds, the Francis Marion perfectly exemplifies the style and grace that Charleston is so well known for. While the hotel retains the character of the era when it was built, it now includes all the modern amenities you would expect, including a spa and fitness center. Be sure to book a night at their award-winning Swamp Fox restaurant, with its rotating menu of farm fresh, locally-sourced ingredients showcasing modern twists on the region’s traditional cuisine.
