Charleston has several options for you to make a carefree special event the highlight of the season. Get into the Christmas spirit with these events that you can find only in Charleston.
The Holiday Festival of Lights Tour
The Holiday Festival of Lights has been a Charleston Christmas tradition for the past 26 years, and each year it gets better and better! Be mesmerized by more than two million lights in over 750 Christmas displays scattered across a 3 mile drive on James Island. This is a great family activity. Your children will absolutely love the dancing light displays and attractions like the Enchanted Walking Trail, festival train rides, the old-fashioned carousel and Santa’s sweet shop.
Make the most of this night with your family by hiring a driver – that way you can give your full, undivided attention to your children. You’ll be able to take part in the excitement and listen to all their oohs and aaahs. No worries about parking or looking out for pedestrians at night. You could hire a sedan, SUV or limo van, but if you want to make things extra fun, why not get a bigger group together and hire a party bus? It’s exciting for the children, and you can enjoy spiked apple cider and a s’mores pack. Crafted Travel put this all into one convenient package for you.
