Quality of Life

Sunny with a high of 75

Nestled alongside the Ashley and Cooper rivers as they flow into the Atlantic Ocean, Charleston enjoys a subtropical climate—with mild winters and warm, sunny summers. On average, July is our warmest month, January is our coldest, and August gets the most rainfall.


Living in Charleston County has numerous benefits

From grand, historic homes to sleek condominiums outfitted with the latest amenities, there’s a comfortable home for every taste.

Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be steeped in history and surrounded by carefully maintained beauty—because that’s Charleston: comfortable, beautiful, historic.
