Much like other parts of the deep South, the best time to visit Forbes Travel Guide Recommended French Quarter Inn is probably somewhere between April and June. The weather is a comfortable 75 degrees most of the time, and the world-renowned Spoleto Festival spreads its cultural wings in late May/early June. But if all of that excitement (and Market Street traffic) proves too much for you, try stopping by the charming city in October. Though the young men and women will be back in school at nearby College of Charleston, the usual glut of people in the shops and at the restaurants will be nonexistent. Plus, the autumn events calendar is actually quite robust, what with happenings such as the Preservation Society of Charleston’s Fall Tours going on.
