Staying cool is not always the easiest in Charleston and the last week has been no exception. Charleston residents know how to deal with the heat in the best fashion, by enjoying the water or indoor, air-conditioned activities on hot summer days. Then, we head out after the sun goes down.

Museums & Education

Museums – Charleston’s rich history is on display through our many air-conditioned museums. A few of our favorites are:

Aquarium – Head to the South Carolina Aquarium for a family-friendly journey through 60 unique habitats from turkeys and otters to turtles and the 385,000-gallon great ocean tank.


The Sanctuary Spa at Kiawah – After a few days walking around museums or shopping you may need to unwind. Get pampered with spa services on gorgeous, private Kiawah Resort.


  • Cinebarre – Eat and drink (yes, there is alcohol) during your movie at Cinebarre!
  • Citadel Mall – IMAX, 3D, or regular movies
  • Terrace Theater – Fun, unique theater that shows a mix of independent and popular movies, with beer & wine available.
