Charleston is an amazing city, the secret is out. In just the last year alone, Charleston was named the #1 Top City in America, our own Wentworth Mansion was named the #12 Best Hotel in the World and our culinary scene officially exploded, with local chefs and restaurants gracing the pages of national magazines and appearing on the Travel Channel and Food Network.
Life here really as good as it gets. The whole getting here part, that’s sometimes been a challenge – until last week. Skies over Charleston got even more “blue.” The amazing JetBlue Airways announced a late winter move-in date into the Charleston International Airport. We are jumping for joy here in the Holy City, but who is really in for a treat? Our friends from the Northeast. Those travelers accustomed to expensive, multiple-city itineraries or the dreaded 15-hour drive down 95 South. Beginning February 28th, JetBlue will offer nonstop flights from New York City and Boston to Charleston! Woo hoo! Get the full scoop from the Charleston Visitors Bureau.
What better place to use up those vacation days than Charleston in the winter? It’s not really winter here. Even in February and March, flowers and trees are already blooming. You can dine al fresco. Dazzling red sunsets slink into the water. Beach excursions are quick and easy. Oh, and did we mention there’s no snow? There are amazing hotels to choose from, and we have a few suggestions for you.
Looking for a bit of luxury and opulence, check out our Wentworth Mansion, tucked away from the bustle of downtown in a residential neighborhood. There’s also the Kings Courtyard Inn, a unique and historic downtown property and the Fulton Lane Inn, a serene “beachy” hotel, both centrally located on the famous King Street. For history buffs and bed&breakfast travelers, check into our John Rutledge House Inn, steps from historic homes and Charleston’s famous waterfront. There’s so many ways to stay and play here in Charleston.
JetBlue has the potential to bring 100,000 new visitors to Charleston each year and we can’t wait to play host. Discover our full range of accommodations and start planning your trip to downtown Charleston here.
