Art, history, architecture, gardens, culture, shopping, fine dining, and outdoor activities – there’s always something fun and interesting happening in Charleston and March is no exception! With average temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s, it’s the perfect time for a stroll down the street from the Inn to the French Quarter Art Walk, March 1, where multiple galleries stay open after hours, serving wine and the opportunity to discover great new art and artists. Located in the nearby French Quarter, it’s a fun, relaxing evening and a great way to kick off March in beautiful Charleston.
