What to do when it's raining

Will arrive on Sunday night (13th) and stay for entire week. Lots of rain in the forecast so I need suggestions for places to go that are indoors. We want to see historic houses, do they let people in during thunderstorms?!

Fun note: We had reservations for last year in late Aug.,but canceled on day before scheduled departure due to hurricane that was supposed to arrive same day as us!!

I wouldn't worry too much, thunderstorms usually don't last long ~ not a rain all day type of event. Often when they forecast "scattered thunderstorms" we end up with nothing. Everything will still be open (houses, etc) you can also go to the aquarium, museum, Gibbs art museum.

We have been in a terrible drought, so we need the rain badly. However, I would be shocked if we get anything near as much as what they are showing.

It can be pouring on one side of the street and dry on the other.

The historical houses will be open and will probably have a special place for your umbrellas. I would suggest either the Edmonston-Alston House or the Nathaniel-Russell House. You can always pop into one of the art galleries or stores along the way.

Like the above posters said, the predicted rain is not an all day thing. But other indoor activities you can try:

South Carolina Aquarium

Charleston Museum

Gibbes Art Gallery

The City Market

Just a few suggestions.

Thank you for the quick reply! I appreciate hearing about the weather from someone "over there" instead of going by the weather.com info.
