Located in Mount Pleasant and their fourth location nationwide, PlantHouse offers unique plants, build your own terrariums, and adult beverages to enjoy while you shop. Plants and booze? Sign me up.

Take the Daniel Island Ferry
Back for another season, the Daniel Island Ferry offers a beautiful and convenient way to enjoy a date night in downtown Charleston. The ferry departs from Daniel Island with options for a one-way cruise, round trip, and even a 90-minute sunset cruise. We all know that parking and traffic are two of Charleston’s worst features, so this is a great alternative. Jump aboard and enjoy a hassle-free trip. They also offer custom charters for bachelorette parties, corporate events, and more!
Candle-Making at Candlefish
Everyone loves a good candle. Don’t argue this with me. Grab your partner and partake in Candlefish’s signature scented candle making workshop. The workshop is offered year-round and is the perfect introduction to candle-making. Choose a fragrance from their candle library, learn how to blend wax and fragrance oil, wick your jars, and finally pour two 9oz glass jars to take home. Candles are ready for pick-up the next day. The kicker? The workshops are BYOB.
Bowling at The Alley
Perhaps you like a slightly active and slightly competitive date night. The Alley is a 16,780-square foot reclaimed warehouse that features eight lanes of retro bowling, a 40-foot bar made from recycled bowling lane wood and a 150-seat restaurant serving tasty bites including Holy City Nachos, Bruschetta Avocado Toast and Buffalo Chicken Dip. I once had a work event here and it was such a fun atmosphere. The Alley is also home to an arcade, a concert venue, and a space for children’s parties.
