      We are a beach vacation family and normally spend summers on beaches in FL or AL. We want to travel to Hilton Head this summer. Can you recommend a condo/town home that is near the beach and not pricey? Which areas would be preferred for families that like to play games on beach or just read a book? Any restaurants to recommend and other things to do/see would be greatly appreciated! (We will travel with our 13 and 20 yr old girls.)

      Wondering about transportation

      by LeahJ Online Now Aug 1, 2012 at 10:22 AM

      Hello, I'm travelling from Michigan to Raleigh NC via airline and meeting my friend. From North Carolina we are then travelling via car to Charleston (Mount Pleasant) to stay with some relatives of mine. We want to sight see in downtown Charleston, and will have my friend's car, but I've heard that parking can be scarce in downtown Charleston. I'm wondering which mode of transportation is the most enjoyable/most affordable as far as tours of the city are concerned. My friend and I are both very interested in learning as much historically about the city as we can. We don't mind the heat, she's used to it and I love it anyway.

      Thanks in advance,
      Leah

      Recommendations for Charleston

      by Lillian90 Online Now Jun 30, 2012 at 5:47 AM

      Hi!

      I'm going to Charleston with my sister for a few days next week. We were suppose to meet up with a friend, but he got a job in another state, so now we are on our own. So do any of you have any suggestions to what to see and do? And does anyone know if there is a place where you might be able to hire bicycles and go for a ride? Neither of us have a car or license, so we would have to get from A to B by walking or buses.

      Thanks in advance :)

      Seek forum for discussion of misunderstandings, mistakes, misnomers, etc., related to Charleston SC

      by smeans2 Online Now May 1, 2012 at 7:32 AM

      I'm a native Charlestonian, now retired and living in NYC and Maine. I still visit Charleston and have taken a renewed interest in the city and its history, contributing to Wikipedia, etc. In the currently available information in travel guides and on sites such as VT, I have been surprised by the amount of historical and factual misinformation out there, not to mention myths that seem to have developed (or made up) since I lived there. I don't think this is the place for discussion of these matters, but can anyone suggest an appropriate forum? I can correct mistakes in Wikipedia, but I can't change widespread public misconceptions single-handedly. I'd also like to discuss current terms for places and things that have been newly coined, such as SOBs and SNOB, but I'm probably more concerned with historical and factual matters. Thanks, Spencer (smeans2)

      Have any of you all been deep sea fishing? That's what the guys want to do, so I suppose I'll go with them. Is it scary? Also, what type of boat would we would we want to rent?
      I think my brother is teasing me. He keeps showing me boats like this one: anglerschannel.com/content/2..., and saying that we're going to go very fast.
