Charleston in mid-end of October?

My husband and I are planning to fly into Atlanta in mid October, rent a car and drive to Savannah and Charleston, SC and back to Atlanta over a 10 day period. Will the fall colors be changing then and I need suggestions for the best things to do along the way and in Charleston. Thanks for your help.

The weather in Oct is usually quite nice. Warm, but not hot and low humidity. You are not going to see all that much leaf color in the coastal areas, some, but it's just not much to see here. For really good fall color you would need to go to the Blue Ridge Parkway, in the Asheville, NC area.

You might also see more color in the Atlanta area.

At the top right of this page is "Top Questions about Charleston" - read this and it will give you a wealth of info and suggestions, "must do" items, etc. Then if you have more questions, let us know. It is very difficult for us to answer "what should we do" when we don't know your interests, etc. That info will help you narrow it down and we can be more specific for you. :-)

Blue Ridge Pkway GA/Sc, then Charleston area, Savannah & back to ATL would make a really nice 10 day touring vacation.


Perhaps renting a cabin?
