    I lived in Charleston for three and a half years — I’m not sure if you’d be going to the Lowcountry to have your beach vacation (you should! Sullivan’s Island, Folly Beach, and the Isle of Palms are gorgeous), but I’d say it starts getting a little breezier at the end of October or the beginning of November. You’d still be fine to wear a t-shirt, of course, but I don’t really think November would be OPTIMAL lying-out-on-the-beach weather; you’d probably still be comfortable if you were walking around, but you wouldn’t really want to be sunbathing or anything. That said, the weather is pretty surprising sometimes — I remember playing on the beach a few days before Thanksgiving, so you can’t really accurately predict!
    You really can’t go wrong anywhere between April and early November, so I’d aim for that. September is still pretty rainy but October is usually the best month — the humidity has died down a little, the bugs are just a little less annoying, it’s still warm and lovely, it’s still light, and there’s just the nicest breeze in the evenings. Once you’re into November and December, it usually cools down a little (we’re talking maybe a light jacket — nothing huge.) I do remember it SNOWING lightly once a few years ago in January, and February is usually pretty chilly too. But then it all gets fairly nice again in March!
    Hope this helps — have a wonderful time!

    It depends on where you are from. I’m from the NE and I find most states south of VA to be warm.

    A better way of putting it is that it is never cold, though a rare frost will hit. Winters are definitely present, but not at all like the northern states. You need a jacket but not layers of gloves/hats/scarves/.
