Get Out on the Waterfireworks in charleston sc

Since it’s very warm and normally humid in July, we recommend exploring a few tours that go out on the water where it’s cooler.

Go to the Beach

Charleston has 3 main or public beaches in the area that are convenient from downtown. They are all great beaches and you can’t go wrong visiting any of them. To get parking, we recommend heading out by 10 am.

  • Folly Beach: Located 20 minutes from downtown. Has a great pier, restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere.
  • Sullivans Island: Located 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. More of a locals beach with very limited parking.
  • Isle of Palms: Located 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. Has some restaurants and limited shopping.

Morning or Late Evening Walking Tours

We recommend some early morning or evening walking tours such as:

Historic Home & Plantation Tours

There are some amazing Plantation and historic home museums in the Charleston area such as:

Air-Conditioned Mini-Bus Tours

This is a great way to get an overview of the historic sites of Charleston without having to sweat it out in the July heat. Here are our recommendations:

Morning Carriage Ride

We would definitely do this in the morning or later in the evening if possible:

Fireworks Shows

When the sun sets and it’s time for some fireworks there are typically shows all over the area. Since it’s 2021 there are some shows still happening, however some are not. Below is a list of area cities and locales where the fireworks will be popping off!
