Finding the perfect place to stay can make or break your Lowcountry getaway, whether it is a beach vacation in Charleston or a respite from the hectic modern world in historic downtown. Here are some of our favorite hotels in the greater Charleston area:
Whether you'll be renting a car in Charleston or you plan to rely on bikes, cabs, and hotel shuttles to get around, get ready to get going. There's so much to do and see, and, as a wise wanderer, you want to breathe it all in. A car will be handy when crossing the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to take in the stunning views. You won't need a vehicle to enjoy Charleston's historic district, considered one of the country's most architecturally significant neighborhoods. From cobblestone streets to colorful, genteel antebellum mansions, in Charleston you'll be surrounded by history. Be sure to hop a ferry to Fort Sumter and the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, and visit the gardens at Magnolia Plantation. And if you enjoy golf or tennis, be sure to schedule a tee-time at the country's first golf club or practice your backhand at the country's "Best Tennis Town."
Any time is an excellent time to visit Charleston. If you play your cards right, you might experience one of the city's many seasonal events. Around Christmas, enjoy the annual holiday parade, Dickens Dinner, and Festival of Lights—all held in the shadow of the 270-year-old Drayton Hall plantation house. Around Halloween, consider taking a ghost tour…if you dare. In March, there's the Charleston Food and Wine Festival, and in late May, you can check out the 17-daylong Spoleto Arts Festival, packed with performances and visual arts.
Ready to explore the year-round fun? A Charleston, SC, vacation package from Travelocity is the way to go. Charleston package deals bundle airfare and hotel to save you a significant amount of money compared to booking each separately. With the money you pocket, you can treat your entire party to a traditional Lowcountry feast featuring Frogmore stew, she-crab soup, a side of Hoppin’ John, and—of course—some of that delectable shrimp and grits.
