As autumn falls over the Mountain State, our rolling hills and communities begin a magnificent transformation. The season colors our hills and valleys with a coat of reds, oranges and yellows, and Charleston becomes a reflection of all things fall.
The city welcomes a cornucopia of festivities. Local shops and markets fill their store fronts with autumn decorations of scarlet and gold, and restaurants and coffee shops welcome warm pumpkin flavors and spices that ease the chill of the waning days. But with these waning days comes a bounty of events and activities to explore in the capital city.
The Capitol Market
is the first to embrace the essence of fall. You’ll find children winding through rows of vibrant peppers, squash and giant stalks of corn in search of the perfect pumpkin.
And as the fall foliage begins to peak, Charleston main streets will celebrate local foods, craft brews and live tunes. From the West Side to the East End you will find music, theater, dance and visual arts events that highlight the culture and history of our wild and wonderful state.
Whether you embrace the cool days and changing leaves with a drive down a country road, or at one of the numerous festivals in town, you will experience the charming metropolitan area as it revels in the beautiful explosion of colors. Get out and jump in the leaves, enjoy the crisp breeze and discover Hip, Historic … Almost Heaven Charleston!
