Best Time To Go
For those hoping to avoid the slight chill of winter, or the high humidity and mosquitoes of late summer, it’s best to visit Charleston in spring and fall, but truthfully, there simply is no bad time to visit.
The historic homes, galleries, and restaurants of Charleston’s lower peninsula can all be experienced on foot, but you’ll cover more ground by bike (either courtesy your hotel or rentals). Pedicabs are plentiful, and the Green Taxi is quick to respond.
July is the hottest month, with an average high of 91°F (32.8°C). January is the coldest month, with an average high of 59°F (15°C).
Know Before You Go
With Charleston’s culinary scene booming, be sure to make reservations ahead of time, especially for coveted spots like Husk, FIG, and The Ordinary. Otherwise, check the weather forecast and consider bringing layers if needed, sunscreen for balmy weather, bug spray for spring gnats or summer mosquitoes, and umbrellas for the occasional downpour.
