    Winter Weeknights in Charleston

    Charleston is always a good idea—every month of the year and every day of the week. Many travelers hold out for spring, and there are plenty of reasons as to why… The weather is spectacular, and the Holy City’s social calendar absolutely explodes in March, when “tourist season” officially begins.

    Beat the heat, avoid crowds and spend less on your accommodations by booking during the “off-season.” You can save even more on rooms and airfare by traveling mid-week (Tuesday or Wednesday), and there are plenty of things to do in Charleston during the week. Fine dining and shopping are always an option, and local eateries have phenomenal happy hour specials. Businesses also host a variety of special events that make Monday-Friday even more fun!

    Prohibition, located on upper King, offers free swing dance lessons two nights a week (7:00pm on Wednesdays and 6:00pm on Sundays). Visit ProhibitionCharleston.com for more information on dances and live musical performances.
