Fall is my favorite season! It also happens to be one of the best times of year to travel- and there's no better place to travel to than Charleston! Here's why you should visit Charleston this fall.
Charleston may not be the first place you think of when you want to see leaves changing, but you can actually see gorgeous fall foliage here if you know where to look! Immerse yourself in the beauty by exploring some of the best local leaf peeping spots. Magnolia Plantation & Gardens is an easy choice for beautiful fall color. You'll also find some color a bit north of the city in Francis Marion National Forest.
