Charleston South Carolina June 2012 Events

Happy June Everyone! Charleston, South Carolina is looking forward to a month full of exciting cruises, dances, concerts, theatrical performances and more. As you make plans with family and friends, we encourage you to check out these exciting Charleston events. If you are visiting Charleston from out of town, please visit our website to find special hotel deals. We look forward to seeing you at these Charleston SC Events! 

Charleston Cruises
Charleston Harbor Tours will be hosting several exciting themed cruises during the month of June 2012. If you are interested in mysteries, join them for their Murder Mystery Cruise aboard the Carolina Queen. The year is 1920 and you are one of the honored few, hand-selected by Andrew Wheeler himself, to attend the grand re-opening of your favorite speakeasy, Old Hickory. That pesky 18th amendment may have closed the doors to the onshore location, but it has not outplayed your host. Join Charleston Harbor Tours on June 6, 13, 20, and 27, 2012 for this exciting Charleston event. Charleston Harbor Tours is also offering a Blues & BBQ Harbor Cruise this month. Enjoy a delicious Home Team BBQ buffet and live blues music by Shrimp city Slim. These cruises will be held June 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2012.
