The winter is a great time to visit Charleston, South Carolina because the weather is mild (read better than most of the country) and you can save a lot of money with off-season rates. These off-season rates apply across the board, including on flights, lodging, golf and even on a Charleston party bus.
Also some of Charleston’s best festivals are put on during the winter months, these include the Lowcountry Oyster Festival, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and the Wine + Food Festival. There are also some great upcoming concerts and other activities that are perfect for a party bus rental in Charleston, SC. Let’s begin!
The Forte Jazz Lounge is hosting The Temptations & Smokey Robinson on Saturday, January 28th this winter. Take a trip through time as the iconic trio performs their greatest hits. Tickets start at $25 which is beyond a steal for any fan of the era/genre. It also only goes from 7 – 9 pm, making it a great pregame to a night out on the town. Follow it up with a trip down King Street for some lively action!
Charleston is home to one of the best food scenes in the country and Restaurant Week allows diners to try premier restaurants at a discount from January 13th – 23rd. Dozens of restaurants offer prix fixe lunch and dinner menus that exemplify lowcountry cuisine.
We recommend having a Charleston party bus take you to dinner and then to one of Charleston’s many rooftop bars for an after dinner cocktail. From there, your chauffeur can take you to Trio nightclub so you can really get the party started!

Seize the opportunity to see them at Charleston Music Hall, one of the Lowcountry’s best venues, on Tuesday, February 21st. Tickets start at a reasonable $39.50 and you can take advantage of Double Black’s shockingly low weekday discounts!
Take advantage of great off-season green fees this winter in Charleston! Average daytime high temperatures range from 59 – 62, making winter golf very feasible in the Lowcountry. But why just hit the links when you can organize a friendly golf tournament with all of your friends. Whether you’re visiting for a Charleston bachelor party or are a Lowcountry local, golf tournaments are always a blast. They’re even more fun when you book a party bus for your group’s golf transportation.
Southeastern Wildlife Exposition

This bluegrass singer is known for his wild concerts and insane guitar playing. It’s also a great opportunity to see the biggest music venue in the Lowcountry area. However, everyone who’s been to the Coliseum knows how difficult it is to leave after a big concert. That’s why your best option is to book a party bus in Charleston, SC and head over there in style!
