This year marks the sixth annual gay pride week celebration in Charleston, S.C. For the first week in August, fun events and impactful speeches will take place leading up to the main event.
For those interested in contributing to the cause by volunteering at the event, give yourself time to explore before pride week. Head out into the city and see all of the history, color and beauty Charleston provides.
The summertime in Charleston is can’t miss for all things culture, arts, shopping, sightseeing and dining. From award-winning brewery and distillery tours to Charleston’s beaches, aquariums, parks and historic home visits, Charleston is amazing, so visitors to the area should be sure to check out all that the city has to offer.
The Civil War-era brick and colorful, historic buildings lining the impeccably landscaped streets of Charleston make for an amazing backdrop to the week of fun, love and celebration. Pride week includes roller derby, drag brunch, bingo, drag shows, beach parties, comedy night and much more all with guest speakers peppered in before the parade Aug.13.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Spring in Philadelphia is a beautiful time. The flowers are blooming, there are people out enjoying nature and Philadelphia’s festival season begins. There are festivals year-round; however, the spring festivals draw much bigger crowds and get Philadelphians ready for a fun and enjoyable summer. Each festival is unique and it’s worth attending as many as possible to fully enjoy the city.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
