Things to Do in Charleston over Thanksgiving

As the holidays quickly approach,we know it can be overwhelming time as family and friends come in town to visit. But we also know how exciting and special this time of the year is. Celebrating with your loved ones and making countless memories is priceless, so what you do with them should be anything but ordinary. Here are a few fun ideas of things to do in Charleston over Thanksgiving that everyone will enjoy…

  1. Go for a festive run: This year the 41st annual Turkey Day Run & Gobble Wobble will be taking place at 9am on Thanksgiving morning. Walk or run this festive 5k with your family to start off the day and then enjoy music, food, and drinks afterwards. It’s a fun active alternative that will get your whole family out and moving together. Oh and feel free to dress for the occasion because plenty of others will be in their very own handmade turkey day costumes.

  2. Black Friday shop on King Street: Okay, or pretty much anywhere in Charleston. Our lovely city is known for many things, one of which is its shopping. While we all love a good deal, make sure to also take some time to walk around Downtown during the day. King Street is a beautiful walk away from several iconic sites like Rainbow Row, the Battery, and the Pineapple Fountain, which would be sure hits for your family and friends that aren’t from Charleston.

  3. Get active on Shem Creek: Lucky for us the weather here in Charleston is absolutely perfect year round. But while the weather is a little cooler than the blazing summer temperatures, take advantage of all of the activities offered on Shem Creek. Whether you want to kayak, paddleboard, or go boating, there’s always something to do on the water. Plus, with plenty of good restaurants offering good music and beautiful views of the water, it can become an all day event.

  4. Enjoy Charleston’s local cuisine: Not all of us are the cooking type, but many Charleston local business owners are!! If you’re out at CZLA looking for fried seafood and Southern cuisine, then we always recommend Sewee restaurant. However, even if you’re staying Downtown, there’s plenty of amazing restaurants that offer anything from Southern to Asian to steakhouse food. Many restaurants offer fine dining for Thanksgiving night, but make sure to book ahead because spots are extremely limited at many restaurants.

  5. Visit the Holiday Festival of Lights: This is a perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. Drive through James Island County Park to view an extensive collection of assorted holiday lights. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, New Year’s, and Charleston themed lights are sponsored by local businesses as well as themed sections such as under the sea that depict moving lights of all types. It’s a beautiful display that is sure to put those of all ages in the holiday spirit!

  6. Zipline at Charleston Zipline Adventures: As a family owned and operated business, we understand the importance of family and spending time with the ones you love most. That’s why we work to make every visit with us that much more memorable than the last. We want to ensure not only an exhilarating experience but also an unforgettable adventure with your loved ones. This is a way to get your family out into the beautiful outdoors in a unique way that all are sure to enjoy!!

  7. Enjoy your time together: No matter what you and your loved ones chose to do this Thanksgiving, take advantage of all of your time together. There is truly nothing like having all of your loved ones together, so don’t forget to relax and spend as much time enjoying each other’s company as possible.
