Here is a great music video designed to inspire you, gentle reader, to come visit Charleston!
So many things to see and do! We’re about done with the sultry dog days of summer, and one of Charleston’s best kept secrets is that September is wonderful weather and the city is empty!
Eventsin September include Charleston Restaurant Week –great food at bargain prices. Participating restaurants include the very best in town, with prix fixe menus at $20, $30, and $40 the week of September 3-September 10). Charleston Watersports Week offers 10 days of continuous opportunities to enjoy one of Charleston’s greatest assets–the water! Events include competitive sports, leisure activities and special water tours for your getaway trip to Charleston.The Charleston Maritime Center offers a Watersports EXPO September 12-14.
As if Restaurant Week were not enough to satisfy the most discriminating gastronome, , the Southern Living Taste of Charleston will be held September 26-28 at one of my favorite venues, Boone Hall Plantation.Fifty of Charleston’s best restaurants will showcase their creations with sample plates. There is also entertainment to keep the kids busy!
And to round it out, the MOJA Festival, a celebration of African American and Caribbean culture, it is in its 30th year here and brings to Charleston the vibe of the Islands, doncha know?
