4 Bucket List Salamander Experiences

Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort

Play Where the Pros Play

Imagine yourself hitting from the fairways graced by some of the world's most talented golf professionals. As a bucket list golf destination, Innisbrook Resort offers the opportunity for golfers to play four top-rated courses including the Copperhead Course, home of the PGA TOUR's Valspar Championship. Do you have what it takes to enter the very Snake Pit where tournaments have been won and lost? Guarded by a large statue of its namesake at the entrance to Hole No. 16, the final three holes (Moccasin, The Rattler and The Copperhead) pose a challenge to even the most seasoned players. See how your own skills measure up!

Swimming with Horses in the Caribbean Sea

Swim with Horses

The Half Moon Equestrian Center offers guests a variety of activities from riding, jumping and even polo lessons. But perhaps the most thrilling of them all is the Turf and Surf Ride. Get the best of both land and water with a scenic trek on the private beach followed by a swim in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Feel the power and grace of these majestic animals as they swim through the ocean with you on horseback. The opportunity to swim with the horses and experience the sea in a completely new way, makes this a truly once in a lifetime adventure.

Ziplining at Salamander Resort

Soar Through Treetops

Take an exhilarating treetop zip through Virginia’s countryside with Empower Adventures at Salamander Resort and Spa. The platforms situated 35-55 feet off the ground are sure to take your adventure to new heights. The thrill of flying is in reach for all levels with a variety of curated ziplining tours, including options for ages four and up! The full Treetop Zip Tour course spans 20 acres and is comprised of zip lines varying in length from 90’ to 675’ as well as two suspension bridge crossings to really get your adrenaline pumping.

Camellias at Hotel Bennett

Cheers at Camellias

Enter through the stunning glass double doors and let the magical pink hues and crystal chandeliers make you feel like you’ve walked right into a fairytale. As colorful as its namesake flower, Camellias is known as Charleston’s most coveted Champagne Lounge, featuring an extensive collection of bottle and by-the-glass offerings paired with a decadent selection of caviar, charcuterie and local seafood. Named by Food Network as the most instagrammable restaurant in America, a visit to this Faberge jewel box inspired champagne lounge is the extra special touch you need to elevate your stay - your Instagram feed will thank you.
