July Travel Guide to Charleston

The rustle of palmetto fronds, call of shorebirds, and sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore comprise the inviting soundtrack to summer in the Lowcountry. There’s nothing quite like savoring this sun-kissed season in Charleston, and we look forward to spending it with you!

Meet us at Fish to celebrate Bastille Day alongside one of Charleston’s favorite culinary artists, French Chef Nico Romo, enjoy a starlight screening of “Inside Out” at Freshfields Village, or create your very own fragrance blended candle with dry notes such as lemongrass and lavender at Candlefish. Dive into Southern Fried Chicken with Pimento Cheese dressing at Husk (is your mouth watering yet?), satisfy your sweet tooth with Magnolias’ palatable pecan pie (how about now?), or order up a double scoop of Jeni’s Sweet Cream Biscuits & Peach Jam flavor in celebration of National Ice Cream Day! Promenade through the Historic French Quarter while making stops at Charleston’s notable art galleries during the 11th Annual Palette & Palate Stroll, sign your curious kids up for Junior Historian Summer Camp at Middleton Place, or explore Charleston’s history through the arts at the newly renovated Gibbes Museum of Art.
