Charleston is known for its fantastic climate… warm, balmy temps in the summer. Spring is fabulous, and fall is, too - warm, but without as much humidity. So when word gets out that there’s snow falling in Charleston, it’s BIG NEWS. Seeing the white stuff is pretty darn exciting for us locals, and it sure is a wonderful way to get in the holiday spirit.

There are so many great options for taking in the holiday lights around the Isle of Palms and Charleston. Some are professional installations - world-class ones, even - that draw locals and tourists alike, some from many states away. I’ll share a couple of the absolute best in the Lowcountry.

Get ready for a festive, bright, and magical time when packing for your vacation to Isle of Palms, SC this Holiday season!
