Your Guide to Spring in Charleston

Spring is almost here and we’ll be the first to admit we’ve got spring fever. Bring on warm weather, porch hangs, and event season! Charleston’s pastel colored homes, hidden courtyard gardens, and palm tree lined streets come alive during this time of the year, making it the most wonderful time to visit. The flowers are blooming, the city is bustling, and everyone is happy. We want you to make the most of your visit, so we’ve created a springtime bucket list for your inspiration.

Rent a Bike and Explore the Historic District

The city of Charleston is most efficiently explored on two wheels. The temperate climate during spring makes renting a bike a no-brainer on those beautiful sunny days.  Thanks to Holy Spokes, Charleston’s newest bike share program, it is now easier than ever to rent a bike for the hour or the entire day.

Enjoy a Rooftop Cocktail

For a breathtaking birds-eye-view of Charleston, visit one of the various rooftop establishments.  With so many to choose from, the options are endless. Some of our favorites are: The Rooftop at Vendue, Stars, and Revelry Brewing. Refer to our blog post on Charleston’s Best Rooftop Views to explore all of Charleston’s rooftops.

Dine on Shem Creek

Enjoy Charleston’s freshest seafood with a cocktail as you watch the sunset over Shem Creek. Observe the parade of boats as they roll into the harbor after a long day of shrimping.  There’s nothing quite like a sunset in the Low Country, and Shem Creek is definitely one of our favorite spots to watch it from.

Dine in a Courtyard

Everyone knows Charleston is filled with incredible food.  What they don’t know is that some of Charleston’s best food can be enjoyed in a historic courtyard.  If you want to experience a true Charleston courtyard, dine outside at Pan e Vino, grab a drink at the Blind Tiger, or enjoy brunch at 82 Queen. We could name a dozen of our favorite restaurants, but these spots are where history and food collide.

Sip on Sparkling Rosè

With spring just around the corner, prepare your palate with the perfect warm weather drink; Frosè.  Also known as Frozen Rosè, this drink is basically a sophisticated slushy.  Our favorites are located at The Skinny Dip: Charleston and Leon’s Oyster Shop!

Pack a Picnic

The start of spring is the perfect excuse to get together with your closest friends and spend the day surrounded by nature.  There are so many wonderful spots in Charleston to enjoy a charcuterie board alongside a bottle of wine.  One of our favorites is Hampton Park.  Located just off the beaten path, Hampton Park has plenty of room for you to spread out and bask in the sunshine.  Admire their diverse collection of antique roses and oak trees lined with Spanish moss.  There’s nothing else like it in Downtown Charleston.
