From March 1–5, Charleston hosts its annual wine and food festival to show off just why it gained such a reputation. The main area of the festival is held in Marion Square, a park downtown, while events take place around the city and its surrounding areas.
Each event is hosted by an acclaimed expert in the field, be it farming, wine, cocktails or food. Local chefs such as Amalia Scatena and Anthony Dibernardo are involved, and the festival looks set to satisfy even the most intense cravings.
If you work in the industry or are simply interested in tasting some of the finest produce South Carolina has to offer, the Charleston Wine and Food Festival is the place to be. You’ll come away with a fully belly and a head full of inspiration for the next time you cook at home or impress your friends with an exquisite dinner party.
In March, the weather starts to warm up, with daytime temperatures that can reach 68 degrees Fahrenheit. It might not be warm enough to hit the beach, but there is plenty more to see in Charleston. Take in the historic center of town, stroll around some of the renowned art galleries and maybe even rent a bike to explore further afield. It will also help to burn off some of the calories you’ve been stuffing yourself with too!
It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations.

Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.
