School’s back in session, pumpkin spice flavored foods and beverages are everywhere, and the NFL has finally returned to TV screens across the country.
You know what that means…
Fall is just around the corner!
Sure, it’s only the second week in September, but a bunch of fun fall activities are starting to pop up again. And things like pumpkin patches and corn mazes are only around for a limited time, so it’s best to get them on your calendar now so you don’t miss them!
To ensure you don’t miss out on all the fall fun, we’re sharing some of our favorite fall activities in Charleston, SC. If you live here or are planning a visit, we hope you’ll check some of these events out!
Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch
The Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch is located in Mount Pleasant—a 20-minute drive from downtown Charleston depending on traffic–but it’s definitely worth a visit.
It’s slightly early to get your pumpkins for Halloween, but this venue has an amazing corn maze that you won’t want to miss. It’s only $10 per person (ages 3 and up), which makes this activity affordable for the whole family.
This year, they will feature two mazes. The first maze is 8 acres and is perfect for older kids and adults. The second maze is much smaller and is great for smaller children.
If you have a fun time at the corn maze, make sure you mark your calendar to go back in October to grab yourself a pumpkin!
Charleston Farmer’s Market
The Charleston Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday in September. It’s a great place to stock up on fresh produce, grab a locally grown pumpkin for pumpkin carving, or purchase a fall craft from a craft vendor.
This market is held in Marion Square right outside the College of Charleston.
The best part…visiting the farmer’s market is 100% FREE and is fun for the whole family. Come enjoy the fall atmosphere and fun street music without spending a penny!
Charleston Fall Homes and Gardens Tour
The Charleston Fall Homes and Gardens Tours don’t officially begin until October 5. However, these tours tend to sell out fast, so we want to make sure that, if you’re interested in doing a fall tour, you have plenty of time to get your tickets!
During these tours, a guide will walk you through the town of Charleston and bring you to select historic homes and gardens for your viewing pleasure. All the homes are well kept and beautifully decorated. You may even learn a thing or two about Charleston history during your tour!
Tickets start at $40. However, there are several tour packages available, so you can pick and choose what you want to spend and what you want to see.
