Weekends are the perfect time to explore Cola’s winter wonderland. And we’ve planned the perfect way to spend your Saturday.

👟Start with a stroll

Escape your cabin fever with a wintery hike at Congaree National Park. We recommend the Boardwalk Loop which is lined with loblolly pines. Just be sure to bundle up.

❄️Festive fun

Once you’re done, why not get in the holiday spirit with Lights before Christmas at Riverbanks Zoo & Garden where you can take photos with Santa and roast marshmallows at the Jingle Bell Bonfire?

🥂Finish with a toast

Warm up with a cocktail at Hendrix (1649 Main St.) and enjoy the skyline views from the rooftop and a firepit.
