    Take a Break and Visit Charleston this Holiday Season

    We’re gearing up for some holiday cheer! We hope that you are making festive plans with friends and family, but if you need a breather from meal prep, house guests and persisting political commentary from extended relations, consider taking a trip to Charleston this year.

    Thanksgiving in Charleston

    Kick off the holiday season with a trip to remember! November is one of the best months to visit downtown Charleston. The weather is positively perfect, and there is so much to do and see. If you plan to spend Thanksgiving Day in Charleston, we recommend a Wednesday check-in so that you can catch a low key happy hour. The following restaurants offer phenomenal specials and are within walking distance of The Governor’s House Inn…

    • Blind Tiger
    • Pearlz Oyster Bar
    • Minero – Nothing says “Happy Thanksgiving!” like $2 off margaritas and house made guacamole.
    • High Cotton

    Before check-in be sure to secure reservations for the main event. Many of Charleston’s most popular restaurants will be serving multi-course Thanksgiving meals, but tables fill up quickly. We recommend making reservations as soon as possible. The following are favorites among our guests…

    • Charleston Grill
    • Poogan’s Porch
    • Magnolias
    • High Cotton
    • Cypress

    These restaurants have already previewed their Thanksgiving menus. Visit Charleston Eater for details and other participating restaurants.

    After the main event, we recommend hitting King Street for a little Black Friday and Small Business Saturday shopping.

    End your Thanksgiving weekend with a trip to the Holiday Festival of Lights on James Island.
