We’ve been talking about Christmas in Charleston for weeks. There are so many events, great places to shop and amazing local gift ideas. So it was no surprise to us when Travel + Leisure put Charleston on its “Best Places to Spend Christmas” list.

The travel magazine had this to say about the Holy City: “Charleston puts its own spin on the holidays—pecans roasting instead of chestnuts, eggnog spiked with bourbon, and choirs singing spirituals at Drayton Hall plantation.”

The piece gives special mention to the Wentworth Mansion as the best place to stay and to Peninsula Grill as the spot for your holiday meal.
