PRO TRAVEL TIPS
If you want to avoid the crowds, the exorbitant prices, and the bugs in the muggy heat, come in September when the air is cooler but the water’s still warm, or right after Thanksgiving in late November. Prices for hotels drop by at least 30% and flights are much cheaper. The weather is perfect for lying on the beach with a book all day, or for leisurely strolls through Charleston’s Instagrammable neighborhoods. Otherwise, spring is popular for Charleston’s blooming magnolias.
