Things to Do in Charleston (September 2020)

Welcome to September! We’ve got lots of events and resource guides to keep you and the kiddos entertained and busy this month!

*Please note that with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are urging you to follow all federal, state, and local guidelines.

Here are some other guides you may find handy!

*Please note – While we make every effort to crosscheck current links and event details on our guides, we always encourage you to do the same before making final plans. If details are missing or incorrect, please let us know so that we can correct them. 

Looking to add some adventure to your month? If your kids are ready for a break from homeschooling and virtual everything, then plan a family day or date night at Summit Adventure Park. The area’s all-new trampoline park packs 12 attractions and tons of fun into each visit. Test gravity on the Olympic-sized trampoline court, become the ultimate athlete, ninja or gladiator, take flight on the airbags…even toddlers can get in on the fun in their very own Kid’s Court. Check site for hours and rates. Follow them for special events and promotions. Summit Adventure Park is passionate about fun and serious about safety. Click here to learn more about the added measures they’ve taken so you can have fun worry-free.
