Moving is never easy. And especially if you are doing it for the first time. There are just so many tasks that need to be completed before your moving day comes, and all of them combined can overwhelm even the most experienced of us. And that is why you need to prepare yourself. You need to plan your relocation to Charleston carefully, and with our assistance – you will do it in no time!

A bachelorette party in Charleston is an experience unlike any other. The city is full of amazing restaurants, bars, beaches, and activities that are “must-do’s." While we here at Saltwater Cycle certainly think it’s great to hit the hot spots (think Rainbow Row, Stars Rooftop, King Street shopping), we are here to give you a few pro-tips for local businesses that you might not know about, but will truly enhance your Charleston experience!

New year, new laws… and 2020 ushers in a couple big changes, including a smoking ban on the beach itself.

January 1 is often when new laws take effect, and this time around it’s especially true on the Isle of Palms.

Hopefully these new regulations will lead to our beloved beach being an even healthier, cleaner place and will help protect the marine life just off our shore.

I often take for granted the importance of a proper morning routine. Over the years, I have developed some positive habits which have helped me to stay healthy, even through the most stressful of times. Here are some of the most important habits I perform daily.

Hey Gang,

A good venue manager should be well educated, enthusiastic and proud of the property they represent. If you're not feeling the love, move on to the next as we'll be working with them throughout the entire wedding planning process! When prospecting wedding venues, here are some questions to ask. Don't be shy, as this is one of the most important decisions you'll be making when planning your wedding.

Also known as the Charleston Chinese Lantern Festival, Lights of Magnolia is a visual spectacle never seen before in this part of the world.

It’s described as a “massive garden installation of LED light exhibits,” put on in partnership with the world famous Zigong Lantern Group from Zigong, China.

According to their website, Zigong is the leading Chinese lantern festival in the world. They’ve won numerous international awards, are the largest in China and the biggest lantern festival operating outside of China as well.

It’s that time of year, folks! As Christmas approaches and Hanukkah begins, it’s time again for the season of the ugly sweater. From festive and fun to downright dirty, the internet has a plethora of sweaters for every party-goer. Here is our list of the best ugly sweaters we found on Amazon today.

If you find yourself walking along the High Battery in Downtown Charleston towards the end of the peninsula, look left. There, in the mouth of the Charleston Harbor, you’ll see the black and white lighthouse of Sullivan’s Island.

Known by locals as the Charleston Light, the Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse was built in the early 1960s to replace the light on Morris Island, which was in danger of being destroyed by erosion and has since been restored. The Charleston Light is still a working lighthouse, continuing to serve as a beacon to welcome ships into the Charleston Harbor.

I don’t know about you, but I’m silly with parties this time of year. Whether it’s a Christmas party, office get-together, book club, New Year’s Eve celebration, or a going-away party, it seems like there’s always something going on. Lately, I’ve been trying out new recipes for these things that are fairly easy to do, and I’ve found a lot of winners! Check out the list below for party-friendly recipes that are sure to please.

When thinking of the holiday season, one often conjures up images of snow-covered rooftops and gently smoking chimneys, of horse-drawn sleighs and delighted children opening gifts, of snowball fights and winter bathing suits…. Wait, what?

You heard right, folks. Christmas-themed swimsuits exist. JUST IN CASE.

Okay, maybe you’re celebrating the holidays somewhere warm (like Charleston...or anywhere close to the equator) but these holiday bathing suits still made me chuckle and I hope you will too.

Here are some of the best holiday swimsuits I found on Amazon today.
