i'm from Brooklyn, and my wife and i are driving down to Charleston for a week in mid-March. we've never been, but we love the beach off-season; and we really enjoy discovering new places, especially the local spots. problem is, all i can find online is a bunch of cheesy travel-sites with thumbnail pics of hampton inns and golf courses... can anyone out there lead us toward a couple great spots to start with? maybe an off-the-beaten-path place to stay that's not crazy expensive? or a great bar with no sign, tucked away at the end of an alley somewhere? or a seafood restaurant on a crooked dock with a guy playing lounge piano? i will be happy to return the favor (vis a vis New York City) anytime! cheers and many thanks.
I'm going to be in Charleston for one day. We are staying in Myrtle Beach and taking about a 1/2 day trip to Charleston. We're probably just looking to grab dinner and maybe see the sights for a couple hours. It's just my retired parents and I so we're not looking for the wildest bar or anything like that. Here are a couple questions: Do you recommend a place to eat: Nothing too fancy. Maybe sandwiches and burgers or possibly seafood. A nice atmosphere in a good location would be ideal (maybe on a boardwalk, near downtown, beach, etc.) What would you recommend if we only have a couple hours? We're not big musuem goers or anything like that. Maybe if there is a nice downtown area, boardwalk type area, etc. If it were close to a good restaurant that would be ideal. Thanks in advance for your suggestions, Mike
I'd like to know if the open air markets at Meetings St. is open during the weekdays.
What is the best transportation from Charleston to Savannah? Car, train, bus, etc? We are on tight time constraints and want to spend as much time in each city. Thanks
Over 15 years ago, we visited Charleston. We fell in love with the city and enjoyed our visit to the Market. I purchased beautiful hand painted shell ornaments (Santa) for my two sons and every year enjoy hanging them on our tree. Several years after our visit, our third son was born. Recently, when I was putting away the ornaments, I discovered a business card for the person who painted the ornaments and wondered if they were still in the market after all these years. I would love to purchase one for him. The card reads Mary Lou's Ltd. Is this person still there? I know it has been a while. Thanks!
Any thoughts? (Please keep them encouraging as we've already booked the trip.) We'll be there for 4 nights, midweek and while it'll be warmer than here in Jersey, we're not expecting balmy tropical breezes. Thanks in advance.
We are going to be in Charleston in early October and wanted to make sure we did the MUSTS...while there. Any specific MUST recommendations re: tours, shopping, eating, etc? Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated and welcome. Thank you in advance.
The French Quarter Inn....good choice?
If I am staying downtown, how far are the beaches? can I walk? or bus? any other suggestions will be very appreciated, because I haven't booked the hotel yet, so I can flexible as far as location Thanks
We are 4 adults looking at visiting Charleston over Xmas. Interested in a house or apartment/condo rental in the Historic district. Any suggestions?
Well, it looks like I'm headed back to Charleston this fall for another conference. This year I'm being given the option of reserving the Embassy Suites in North Charleston and the Hampton Inn - Historic District in Charleston. Last year I had a bit of a disappointing stay at the Embassy Suites, and since the conference will be providing transportation to and from the sessions at the convention center...I was considering going with the Hampton Inn. But I'm reading mixed reviews about the hotels, so maybe I should look at it from a location stand point. Which one would you pick for five days in Charleston? Thanks in advance, Sage
Anyone know if there are internet cafes, or something similar, in the historic district? I'm trying to decide whether or not to bring my laptop.
I recently bought some Oatmeal Honey homemade soap from a homemade soap vendor in the Market in Charleston. I only bought 1 bar because I didn't know if I'd like it and I LOVE it and want to purchase some more. I lost the card she put into my bag when I purchased it. If anyone can give me her information so I can order some more that would be great. I don't remember her name, but she was from the 'north' as she had a northern accent. I think she was originally from NY. Or, if there is a list of all vendors in the market, that would be good too.
Hello! I'm arriving June 2nd by plane, and not renting a car. I'm staying in the historic district and wondering what the best way to get to/from the airport is? I did see mention of a shuttle on the airport site, but no other information on it.

I will be arriving by cruise ship in early May 2008. I will have only about 7 hrs in port. I would like to visit the historic section of town. Is it walkable from the cruise ship pier? In addition to this I would like to visit a Civil War period plantation. There are organized shore excursions to do these things, but they are pricey and many on Cruise Critic forums suggest doing Charleston on one's own. Any advice appreciated. Thanks ....barrackman2....Montreal
Me and my fiance want to get married in front of the pineapple at the charleston waterpark. How do we do this? Do we need some sort of permit? How do we book a date? With whom do we get this help?
What are the boundaries of the City of North Charleston and whats to see or do there?
We are thinking of relocating to the Charleston area from Baltimore, Md. We are a little familiar with the area as we vacation there for 2 weeks every year. My husband will be working in Charleston but we would like to live somewhere a little farther from the city maybe a 10-15 minute commute. We are a progressive family with 2 kids under5 looking for a community of like minded people. Where do all the the city folk move when they have children and want a yard and a decent school? Any info from a local would be great. Thanks.
