With average temperatures at 50 degrees, it’s difficult
to actually call it winter here in the Lowcountry, so it's
always a great time to experience Summerville and Dorchester
County both indoors and outdoors!
Retreat to nature at the Inn at Middleton Place,
located high on a bluff above the Ashley River. Each room
has fabulous views of the area woodlands and the river, and
the rooms have real working fireplaces!
On December 13, adjacent Middleton Place
plantation celebrates Christmas Yuletide.
A Festive holiday celebration for the whole family with storytelling
around a warm fire, Christmas caroling, ornament and wreathmaking,
candle dipping and a live nativity scene of the Plantation's
animals and craftspeople working by candlelight. www.middletonplace.org
Or stay in one of the many cozy bed
and breakfasts located in the heart of Summerville’s
historic district. Go golfing or spend your days shopping for
the holidays in the downtown shops and you’ll find
the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. To keep that
festive mood after dinner, stroll around town square during
the month of December to enjoy thousands of lights adorning
the trees. It's magical!
