Charleston, SC: 10 Things To Do This Fall

Charleston, SC: 10 Things To Do This Fall

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 12, 2017

Abberly at West Ashley Apartments, Charleston, SCIf you live in an apartment in Charleston, SC, here are some must-adds for your fall to-do list.

October has arrived! Besides the great weather that fall brings, the season also brings a lot of fun fall activities along with it. Here are 10 things to do in Charleston this October.

1. Boone Hall Fright Nights

In the spirit of Halloween, a visit to Boone Hall is a must. That is, if you love haunted houses and being scared out of your mind! During October Boone Hall is transformed into a spooky haunted mansion. They have four different attractions, including a super creepy hayride. On top of the Fright Nights, they also have a killer maze and pumpkin patch open during the day.

2. Legare Farms Pumpkin Patch

This may be a little basic, but it is the epitome of a fall fun. Legare Farms is one of the oldest working farms in the nation, established in 1725. On top of having an extremely popular pumpkin patch, they also have a series of mazes that are super fun as well. What are you waiting for? Go pick some pumpkins, take them home to decorate and sip your pumpkin spice latte while watching "Halloweentown" on Disney. Fall perfection.

3. Fall Carriage Ride

Charleston is known for their horse-drawn carriage rides. Yes, it is a major tourist attraction, but sometimes it's nice to be a tourist in your own town. Taking a carriage ride this month is a nice and easy way to really enjoy the changes of the season -- the colors of the leaves and the nice fall breeze.

4. Ghost Tours

Ghost tours are also pretty popular among tourists visiting Charleston, but it's oh-so-Halloween and super informative! It's a great way to learn about the many legends haunting the Holy City. There are many different tours to choose from with different themes. One of the most popular ghost tours in Charleston is the Haunted Jail Tour. It was built in 1802, and it's amazing that most of its structures remain the same! It is known to be one of the creepiest of the many ghost tours.

5. Boneyard Beach

Boneyard Beach, or Bull Island Ferry, is a cool place to visit in general. Not only that, but the atmosphere of this beach in the fall is quite enchanting. It's the perfect place for a fall stroll and you are guaranteed to take some great photos. It's one and a half miles of cedar and oak trees stuck in the shore of the beach, and bleached by the sun. There is also no sign of civilization from the shoreline, which makes for an eerie experience.

6. Camping at James Island County Park

Fall, in my opinion, is the best season for camping. James Island County Park is a fantastic place to camp if you aren't looking to drive outside of the low country. They have kayak, paddle boat and bike rentals, as well as several scenic trails for walking, running and biking. They also have a dog park and a disc golf course. Did I mention they have wall climbing? James Island County Park is home to South Carolina's tallest outdoor climbing wall.

7. Kudu Coffee Dates

Kudu Coffee on Vanderhorst Road in downtown Charleston is known for its quaint and cozy atmosphere. It's a great place to get a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate on a chilly or rainy fall day. They also host live music on the weekends, and the pastries are to die for. Plus, they have cute outdoor seating for the warmer days. It might be fall, but it is still Charleston.

8. Citadel Football Games

Fall wouldn't be fall without college football! The Citadel's Johnson Hagood football stadium is situated conveniently in downtown Charleston.

9. Greek Fall Festival

Festivals are always a must. The Greek festival is a tradition in Charleston that brings great food, music and culture to the city. There is always something for everyone at the Greek festival.

10. Murder Mystery Cruise

Who doesn't enjoy playing dress up every once in awhile? Departing from the City Marina, this unique cruise transforms into a 1920s themed speakeasy. It's very much like a big game of "Clue." Dinner is included. Food is always a plus!

Moving to Charleston, South Carolina

Moving to Charleston, South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Abberly at West Ashley, Charleston, SCCharleston, SC is an easy city to live in. With its historical architecture, mild temperatures, amazing restaurants and sophisticated culture, it's no surprise that people come from all over the world to enjoy a little slice of Southern charm and live the Charleston lifestyle.

Where to Live

Getting Away From Downtown. While Charleston is best known for the historic downtown area, there are plenty of areas just a few minutes away with homes more reasonably priced. James Island, Johns Island, West Ashley, North Charleston and Mount Pleasant are all within a 10-minute drive from downtown.

Finding Fun

Fishing. Charleston is surrounded by water, and you can spot sailboats out in the harbor on any day of the week. There’s a large sport-fishing community as well, where some do it for fun while others make their living on the water running charter boat fishing trips. There are still families of shrimpers and fishermen who provide their catch to markets and restaurants. Serving local seafood is a point of pride for Charleston restaurants, and they do their part to support the local economy. Besides, fresh seafood just tastes better.

Getting Active. Charleston is a great place to run or ride your bike with great views of the water — from the Battery to Waterfront Park. A new pedestrian and cycling lane was added to the new Cooper River Bridge and is now used every day by locals and tourists alike. The bridge connects the city of Charleston to the town of Mount Pleasant with a 2.7-mile route each way over Charleston Harbor.

A Golfer's Paradise. The mild climate in Charleston is perfect for playing golf and tennis all year, and there are many public and private golf courses and tennis courts. In 2010, Charleston was even named the USTA’s “Best Tennis Town,” beating larger cities such as Atlanta and Richmond.

In Charleston, there is always something going on. World-class festivals like the Southeastern Wildlife Expo, the Wine and Food festival, Charleston Fashion Week, the Family Circle Tennis Cup and the Spoleto Festival, USA, attract thousands from across the U.S. and other countries. In Charleston, there’s really no “off” season. Easy waterfront access makes fishing a way of life for many Charleston locals.

Cost of Living

Smart Spending. Charleston boasts great restaurants, beautiful nearby beaches and a wide array of outdoor activities. But taking part in all the city has to offer isn't cheap. Eating out and paying to park really adds up, so you can cut costs by living, shopping and eating in neighborhoods away from the peninsula.

Reasons to Move to South Carolina

Reasons to Move to South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 05, 2017

Abberly West Ashley, Charleston, SCFrom its rich culture and vibrant heritage to the natural beauty and acres upon acres of green space, South Carolina is one of those states you can’t help but love. It’s the 23rd most populous state—with almost 5 million people calling it home. And we've got eight reasons why you may want to do this, as well.

1. A slower pace of life

You truly have the best of both worlds in South Carolina. The major cities, like Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville, boast a myriad of entertainment, arts, and delicious culinary wonders, but still offer residents the opportunity to take a step back, unplug from the rat race, and enjoy the sweet, slow pace of southern life.

2. Affordability

Your wallet will be happier in South Carolina than most places in the country. The cost of living here is remarkably low—almost 13% lower than the national average. Here and you’ll have enough money to vacation wherever you want—whether that means crossing the ocean or hitting up a dreamy bed and breakfast to explore the rest of this beautiful state.

3. The beach

Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Hilton Head: The list goes on and on. With miles of seashore, luxurious resorts, and plenty of offshore recreation, South Carolina is every beach bum’s dream come true. You can have your pick of beaches: whether you’re looking for a vacation hub crawling with nightlife and amusement parks like Myrtle Beach, or a more remote and pristine getaway like Kiawah Island. Silky white sand awaits—all you have to do is pick your poison.

4. Southern hospitality at its finest

Rumor has it sweet tea was born in South Carolina. And hey, there’s even Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka for the grown-ups. The tea might be sweet, but the people are even sweeter. Conde Nast actually listed Charleston as the third friendliest city in America in its 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards, noting its laidback and sophisticated atmosphere.

5. Natural beauty

With century old oaks and silky white sand, South Carolina is home to an abundance of natural beauty. The water is clear and the sunsets here rival Hawaii. Take a stroll down historic lanes lined with ancient trees (like the famous Angel Oak, estimated to be more than 400 years old) draped with ethereal Spanish moss and you’ll find yourself wondering how you ever lived anywhere else.

6. Warm weather

Farewell, winter coats; hello, short sleeves. The average temperature in South Carolina is about 64 degrees, with annual lows in the 50s. The warm, sunny climate means you get to spend at least seven to eight months enjoying all the weather has to offer.

7. All the green space / parks

Lace up your hiking boots and grab a map—South Carolina is a great state to get in touch with your explorer side and connect with nature. Here you’ll find 47 state parks covering more than 80,000 acres of land. Named one of the top 25 beaches by TripAdvisor, Hunting Island State Park is a perfect destination for swimming or sunbathing—or even fishing in one of the island’s lagoons. If that doesn’t suit your fancy, consider taking a hike to Raven Cliff Falls in Caesars Head State Park, observing the wildlife at Swan Lake Iris Gardens, or canoeing down the waters of Congaree National Park.

8. History galore

The famous city of Charleston—with its antebellum architecture and charming cobblestone streets—isn’t South Carolina’s only nod to history. There are many sights to been seen in downtown Beaufort, which was founded in 1711 and is the second oldest city in South Carolina. The whole state is draped in a mesmerizing history, from the USS Yorktown and Fort Sumter, to the century old Sheldon Church Ruins (above) and Botany Bay Plantation Heritage.
