If you’re already starting to think about your next winter getaway, consider Charleston. While the temperatures may not reach Caribbean levels of warmth, the charming Southern city makes up for it with a full calendar of music and food festivals throughout the entire season. Between that and some exciting new restaurant and hotel openings, you’ll want to book a flight right now.

The largest photography exhibit about the U.S. South in the 21st century, Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South, showcases work from 56 photographers across two contemporary art spaces, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. The photographs vary immensely in subject matter and offer a provocative look at what life in the South (in Charleston and well beyond) is like in the first two decades of this century. Through March 2, 2019; 161 Calhoun Street and 34 Prioleau Street, free, southboundproject.org
