Charleston, S.C.

Summer heat and humidity can get absolutely brutal in South Carolina, even in the coastal town of Charleston. However, with temperatures now dropping, Charleston makes the perfect getaway before winter sets in. (For the record, the city is beautiful in the winter, too, but you won’t want to limit your outdoor activities by waiting too long.) In addition to heaping servings of delectable, low-country cuisine, Charleston has scenic beaches, informative walking and carriage tours (thanks to tons of local history), lots of shopping, hip art galleries, interesting museums, and plenty of places to get your drink on.
