Below are only a few of the activities that Charleston has to offer during Thanksgiving weekend.

Get pumping early on Thanksgiving morning with the Turkey Day Run, which also features a fun run for the kids and other family activities. If you prefer a slower pace, take a Charleston Strolls walking tour to see the city’s famous landmarks, along with historic antebellum homes, gardens, and courtyards.

On Friday, head over to King Street for some boutique shopping to finish up your Christmas list. Saturday morning breakfast at the Farmer’s Market in Marion Square is a must, and Saturday evening’s holiday Progressive Dinner is an elegant Charleston tradition.

Before you leave, stop in at either the Hominy Grill, High Cotton, Magnolias, or the Fat Hen for a memorable Sunday brunch. Have a safe trip home, and we’ll see you again soon!
