Spring break is the perfect time to escape the ordinary and experience the magic of Charleston, South Carolina. This historic city offers a captivating blend of Southern Charm, natural beauty and endless activities for families and adults alike. Whether you crave relaxation on pristine beaches, exploration of historic sites or immersion in a vibrant arts scene, Charleston has something for everyone.

Spring Break Beyond the Beach

While we love the idea of seven days spent relaxing in the sun and sand, Charleston boasts a vibrant scene that goes beyond stunning beaches. Charleston is the perfect backdrop for unforgettable spring break adventures.

  • Living History: Steeped in history, Charleston's cobblestone streets and charming antebellum architecture transport you back in time. Take a carriage tour for a narrated journey through the French Quarter, Battery Park and Rainbow Row, with its iconic pastel-colored houses.

  • Foodie Paradise: Charleston's culinary scene is a fusion of traditional Southern comfort food and innovative flavors. Indulge in succulent shrimp and grits, savor mouthwatering she-crab soup, or try classic Lowcountry dishes like pimento cheese and benne wafers.

  • Festival Fun: Spring breaks often coincide with some of Charleston's most exciting festivals. Catch the Cooper River Bridge Run, a renowned 10K race, or experience the Credit One Charleston Open, a world-class tennis tournament where the best battle it out on beautiful courts by the coast.
