South Carolina vacations don't have to cost a fortune. Orbitz.com makes it easy to find cheap flights to Charleston and discount hotel accommodations. Steeped in history, Charleston is a place where you can tour old plantations and historic homes, visit the Great Hall at the Old Exchange to see where President Washington once danced and explore the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, the area where English settlers landed in 1670. However, you don't have to be a history buff to enjoy Charleston. With a variety of outdoor activities, kid-friendly attractions and a vibrant nightlife, the city has something everyone will enjoy.
Flights coming into Charleston land at the Charleston International Airport, which is located at 5500 International Boulevard. Several airlines offer flights to Charleston, including American Eagle, Delta Air Lines, US Airways and United Express. Taxicabs are readily available, and cab fare to downtown Charleston costs between $25 and $29. Shuttle vans also transport passengers downtown for $12. At $1.75 per ticket, the bus is the cheapest ground transportation option. If you would prefer to navigate the city by car, you can reserve a rental car through Orbitz.com. Avis, Budget, Hertz, National and Enterprise all have car rental counters at the airport, so you can pick up your rental vehicle as soon as your flight lands.
Mild winters and hot summers make Charleston a perfect year-round vacation destination. During the winter months, average temperatures range from 38°F to 41°F. Although the weather is chilly, it rarely snows in Charleston. During the summer, the average temperatures range from the low 70s to the low 90s. If you travel in the summer, be prepared for rain. Most of the city's annual precipitation falls between June and September. However, the frequent afternoon thunderstorms are a relief from the heat, and they rarely last all day. If you enjoy American History, take a narrated harbor cruise to Fort Sumter, the site where the first shots of the Civil War were fired. You also won't want to miss the Aiken-Rhett House. The magnificent antebellum plantation still looks as it did in 1858, before the Civil War began.
Beautiful weather, southern hospitality and a variety of things to do make Charleston a great place for a family vacation. When you're ready to book your trip, look for cheap flights to Charleston, vacation packages and tickets to local attractions on Orbitz.com.
Most northerners will find Charleston balmy but beautiful any time of year, but the unquestionable high season is spring. People flock to Charleston from April through June to enjoy weather that’s comfortably warm and sunny, and to stroll the downtown historic district while the city’s renowned gardens are in bloom. The biggest event is the Spoleto Festival in May and June. More than 30 years old, the annual art and music gathering wraps up downtown Charleston for more than two weeks. Home and garden buffs should come in mid-April, when the Garden Club of Charleston leads house and garden tours through normally private residences.
Summer and fall offer a good alternative to the spring high season, but plan some beach or water park time in July and August, when the weather is downright sweltering. Charleston still draws big crowds around holidays like Labor Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July—all usually offering little festivals or community gatherings in the park.
The winter low season sees far fewer crowds, and the weather can be cool and rainy, though not freezing (temperatures generally hover around 60 degrees). Especially popular is Christmastime, when the picturesque historic district is draped in a cloak of holiday lights and gracious living is at its most quaint.
