Fun Fall Events in Charleston: From Haunted Mazes to Historic Homes

Summer officially comes to a close September 21 and ushers in a fall season filled with sunny Charleston skies, mild weather and lots of fun things to do. Here are Sabal Homes’ picks for top autumn activities in the Lowcountry:

Charleston Restaurant Week
September 4-15
There’s no doubt that Charleston is known for its dining, and Charleston Restaurant Week lets you enjoy some of our local restaurants’ finest cuisine at discounted prices. Choose from prix fixe (price fixed) menus of three items for either $20, $30 or $40, depending on the restaurant. This is the perfect chance to get out and try a new restaurant or enjoy a perpetual favorite. Here is a complete list of participating restaurants.

Taste of Charleston, Boone Hall
September 29, 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
In case you didn’t indulge enough during Restaurant Week, at this event you’ve got a bunch of Charleston-area restaurants all in one place! At the Taste of Charleston, 50 local restaurants will serve sample size portions, along with beer and wine. Enjoy traditions like the Waiters’ Race, live music and a play area for kids.

Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens
October 3-27
Every autumn, the Preservation Society of Charleston opens the doors to some of Charleston’s most historic and beautiful homes and gardens. Held across various neighborhoods downtown, the Fall Tours let you enjoy an evening walk and peek inside these houses for a taste of times gone by and for decorating inspiration for your own home. Dates and Times.

Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch & Fright Nights
October 1-November 2
A family-friendly event, the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch is a Lowcountry fall tradition. Not only can you pick the perfect pumpkin out of their patch, you can enjoy all kinds of activities like a giant slide tower, huge “jump pillow,” spider web, hay ride, rock climbing wall and more. Plus, this year’s corn maze will display a tribute to the 20th anniversary of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The Fright Nights event is for older kids and adults who enjoy a real scare. Walk through one of several “frightening” experiences, including Zombie Town and the Wicked Woods Hayride.
