The ResortRentals.com staff loves to eat as much as any curious traveler, so we’ve compiled this list of some of the country’s best restaurants in top travel destinations. Check them out below, and don’t forget to bring your appetite!
The Jazz Corner – Hilton Head Island
Hilton Head Island is known for its fantastic accommodations, sprawling golf courses, and inviting South Carolina atmosphere. The Jazz Corner reflects these qualities with some of the best food on the island. Enjoy everything from surf and turf to fried green tomato salad while listening to live jazz music by candlelight. Don’t forget to save room for the butterscotch creme brulee.
Where to Stay: Marriott’s Barony Beach Club. This luxury resort from Marriott puts vacationers right next to the ocean, while still close to all the happenings around the island.
CRAVE – Las Vegas
Located in Downtown Summerlin, CRAVE brings a unique take on American cuisine to the Las Vegas area. Whether you’re in the mood for a simple rib-eye steak or fresh sushi, you can find it at CRAVE. While it might be hard to leave all the excitement that The Strip has to offer, venturing out to a flourishing neighborhood like Summerlin can be worth it. And if you happen to visit CRAVE, your stomach will thank you.
Where to Stay: Club de Soleil. This French-Mediterranean themed resort puts you within a few blocks of The Strip, giving you access to all the great attractions Vegas has to offer.
Magnolias – Charleston
Ranking at the top of many best vacation destinations lists, Charleston, South Carolina has a lot to offer travelers. Between the distinct Southern charm and colonial atmosphere, there is little in the way of finding great food around town. One of the city’s best eateries is Magnolias, an establishment that provides an upscale take on traditional Southern cuisine. Open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, you can discover mouth-watering dishes such as sweet chili rubbed ahi tuna and lump crab-stuffed rainbow trout.
Where to Stay: Church Street Inn. Positioned right in the heart of Charleston, visitors at this urban inn will find themselves with ample opportunity to explore the open-air markets, downtown shops, and historic attractions located around the city.
Pizza Pi – USVI
You won’t find this restaurant while walking around any of the U.S. Virgin Islands. In fact, you won’t even find it in a building. That’s because Pizza Pi makes New York style pizza from a boat on the open water. Located in their “home base” of Christmas Cove, Pizza Pi is only accessible by boat. But the trip to meet them on the water is worth it. The pizza is baked to perfection, and comes with a variety of toppings for you to choose from. Order some take out from Pizza Pi, then brag to family and friends about that time you ate pizza in the middle of the ocean. They won’t believe it, but it’ll be their loss.
Where to Stay: Magens Bay Villas Club at Magens. Located in St. Thomas, this resort is the perfect place to launch your Caribbean adventures around USVI. Discover shopping and sightseeing in Charlotte Amalie, or find a ferry to explore the other islands of St. Croix and St. John.
