From haunted histories to historic homes, there’s so much to discover in Charleston this October. Join Old South Carriage Co. for an after-dark carriage tour to hear eerie tales of Charleston’s past amid a scene of overgrown graveyards and haunted hotels, explore the beauty and splendor of Charleston as the Preservation Society of Charleston welcomes you inside some of the nation’s most exceptional historic homes, or find inspiration at the Charleston Gallery Association ArtWalk, showcasing pieces from more than 40 participating Holy City art galleries. Make your sea-foodie escape to the Lowcountry to sample fresh-from-the-dock seafood during National Seafood Month, fiesta at Minero on National Taco Day, or indulge in Charleston’s top 10 iconic desserts in celebration of National Dessert Day. Find us enjoying a musical kaleidoscope during the Colour of Music Festival, meeting artisans, painters, and jewelers at Autumn on the Ashley, and getting in the Halloween holiday spirit at Dock Street Theatre.
