Cooler Weather In Coastal Carolinas

November and December bring forth cooler weather to the area. The cold will probably be a little too extreme for donning a swimsuit as one can do further down south in warmer tropical places such as Florida. The weather in the low country though remains unpredictable in the late fall and winter with moderately cool temperatures with occasional teaser days in the seventies. This early week of November is a perfect example of low seventies.
While the temps mostly remain in the fifties or sixties into the winter, there is no stopping the fun activities going down in the low country. The late fall and winter months usually bring a slower amount of tourist traffic to Kiawah and even the Charleston area which makes tee times and dinner reservations a little easier to come by.
If the cold November rain or chilly December morning has you scrambling for ideas, consider a trip to the Charleston Aquarium, or a day trip to Savannah or Georgetown. Take in the sights and sounds of downtown Charleston by going on a ghost tour, carriage ride, or a pub tour.
I have never made a pilgrimage down to Kiawah during the late part of the year as a result of my limited vacation slot with my job. Every year I have three weeks to burn on travel for which two weeks are dedicated to “home” projects. The remaining week is usually consumed by a Spring trip to Kiawah to accommodate my children’s school spring vacation schedule. That being said, I would love to burn a Thanksgiving week or New Years day celebrating in the low country with the family, golf clubs, and a cold palmetto ale. Perhaps, maybe next year.
