The Family Owned & Operated Distillery of South Carolina - The Charleston Distilling Company
Entrance to Charleston Distilling CompanyImage credit: Camillo Vitale. Recently we had the pleasure of spending time in Charleston, South Carolina and enjoyed a lot of the typical activities one might look forward to on a relaxing weekend alongside the historical charm of the downtown area. In spite of all of the history and ghost tours, we found Charleston to be very much alive with plenty of sites to see, friendly people and experiences for all ages, as well as a thriving culinary scene. It goes without saying, to us, a great culinary scene makes any trip that much more enjoyable. We, like many others, who are visiting areas outside of our normal day-to-day lives did a little research before traveling and had a good idea of all of the things we wanted to see as we headed out the door on our journey. As luck would have it on our trip, we had outstanding weather and the added luxury of lower crowds than expected. Ultimately this combination allowed us to explore downtown Charleston pretty thoroughly and enjoyably, at least according to our makeshift itinerary and expectations. The great weather really allowed us to spend more time outdoors checking off items on the list and also exploring outside of the downtown area. This enabled us to do some more of the short trips we had hoped to squeeze in if other attractions were unavailable.

How to ride Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind at Epcot
This week has been another busy one for Disney, both for the people attending the parks and Disney fans around the world enjoying Disney+ show updates and announcements as well as some hybrid theme park excitement like the first broadcast of the Harmonious fireworks which was just as cool on TV. During our very recent visit we noted Epcot has continued to inch closer to being done with construction but does seem to have a long way to go. We were definitely excited to see some of the paths have been reopened which make navigation a bit easier and less congested in many parts of the park. There was one part of the park that the masses seemed to be heading towards and lingering, the World Discovery area which has some of the latest and greatest Epcot has to offer.

LOCAL BUSINESS REVIEW - The Master Barber Experience located in Lake Nona within Orlando, Florida
If you are not familiar with the Lake Nona area of Orlando, you may be missing out. Lake Nona has a lot to offer, the proximity to the airport and the beachline are coveted by many. Due to the great access, the area has been growing rapidly and has no slowdown in sight. Lake Nona's Town Center has been under development with Tavistock for quite some time. Thinking back nearly 20 years ago when we first were looking to relocate into the area, Lake Nona was just starting to be developed into what it is today. If you haven't been in the area in the past couple of years, you may be surprised to see what a happening area it has become.
ORLANDO RESTAURANT REVIEW: Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurants
We hit the road again, looking for some great places to eat in the Orlando area. As usual we found a ton of opportunities and that almost always makes the choice more difficult. Our first thought was returning to Bella Italia for the thirsty Thursday specials, but we were on the other side of town and wanted to eat sooner than later. After a quick process to try to help narrow down the choices, we thought our must haves for this dining experience would include a sit-down full service menu, casual dress and great wine. Thankfully we found quite a few options that fit the description and we settled on Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant located at 8005 International Drive, Orlando Florida. They do have locations in 11 states and multiple locations inside of Florida.
Disney Ditches Masks Completely
For those wondering why Walt Disney World was still requiring masks on transportation and not anywhere else on property, we were hopefully able to clarify some of the issues in an earlier article. The good news is, in a somewhat surprising update, guests visiting Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida will no longer have to wonder. In a website driven policy announcement regarding the face coverings, we have found that on April 20th, 2022, Disney World has returned to as close as we can get to a pre-pandemic experience.

LOCAL EATS: Crust Wood Fired Pizza in Charleston, SC
After a full day of activities, it is quite easy to work up an appetite. We recently made a trip out to John's Island, South Carolina as a day trip to escape downtown Charleston. One of our last activities of that day led us into the Charleston Distilling Company for a 5pm drink and recap of the day. We actually did have that drink or two, and in addition we added on their Distillery tour. Be sure to follow us on NewsBreak as the Charleston Distillery content will launch soon. The trip to the distillery was an outstanding end to a long day. The next thing we needed was something great to eat. The wonderful staff at the distillery overheard us talking about options and without hesitation, recommended Crust Wood Fired Pizza.
