December Travel Guide to Charleston

December Travel Guide to Charleston

Dusk settles across the Lowcountry as you are standing in the shadow of Drayton Hall and Gullah spirituals soar through the night air. The melodies are as old as the grove of stately oak trees, and the entire evening is rooted in history. This is #ChristmasInCharleston. Take in the sights, sounds, flavors and traditions of the Lowcountry this holiday season. Join in the festivities at the 15th Annual Dickens Dinner, Nathaniel Russell House Candlelight Tours, The Nutcracker at The Gaillard Center or 33rd Annual Spirituals Concert. Savor sweet treats at Cupcake DownSouth and Grey Ghost Bakery’s Holiday Cookie Demonstration, or enjoy an exceptional three-course Christmas Day dinner at The Grand Bohemian Hotel. Ring in the New Year in style at The Cedar Room’s Black Tie Celebration, or spend your first hours of 2017 at sea with The Bluestone Ramblers and SpiritLine Cruises.
