      Hotel / Things to Do for a Short Stay

      Charleston Feb 20, 2015 at 8:34 PM

      Hello! I'm driving to Boston from Fort Lauderdale and will be in Charleston for a day and a half, from about 6 PM on June 20 until I have to check out of whatever hotel I stay in on June 22. My first question is about hotels. I'll be travelling with two largish dogs and don't want to spend a ton of money, so my hotel choices are limited. I found an inexpensive La Quinta in North Charleston--is this a decent area? I don't know anything about Charleston, so I have no idea about neighborhoods, but the fact that this hotel is so many fewer points in my credit card rewards program than others makes me nervous. My second questions is, if I only have one night and one full day, what should I do? I love history, food, and running if that narrows things down at all.

      Thanks in advance, everyone!

    • What is the best way to see Magnolia Plantation and Gardens?

      Charleston Feb 5, 2015 at 5:22 AM

      My husband is reluctant to drive a car (renting of).
      Could you recommend an excellent Tour Company for Charleston to Magnolia Plantation?
      We will get accomodation in Historic Charleston.
      I do not want a BUS TOUR although a mini-van is o'k.
      I have researched these Companies: Charleston Tours, Charleston's Finest, Adventure Sightseeing.
      Pick-up at hotel would be coonvenient. We particularly like gardens with lingering time there. Charleston Ventures does not conduct Garden Tours.

      How much would a taxi cost there & back?

      Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance. N.Grace

      visiting friends in Greenville, SC

      by rkid21 Online Now Nov 29, 2007 at 9:19 AM

      Hello everyone!

      I am planning a trip to Greenville to visit some friends (who recently relocated there), and I am turning to Virtual Tourist for some advice...

      What is the best time to visit Greenville? I was thinking possibly visiting around Christmas-time. What is the weather like this time of the year? Are there any special activities or events around Christmas-time?

      Is there anything in particular that Greenville is known for, whether it be a food or authors or artists, ect.?

      Any great bakeries, pastry shops or sandwich shops you can recommend?


      Thanks for all the help! I greatly appreciate it!

    • Relocating

      by tamata58 Online Now Mar 17, 2006 at 7:20 PM

      Hi-

      I am certain that you have heard this question many times prior. I am married in my mid 40's with an 8 year old son. We would like some information on Greenville SC. We are thinking of relocating but it's such a big step. I have heard nothing but positive experiences with Greenville so I am putting these questions out to all of you. "What do you like best about Greenville"? "Is it a family town?" "Any flooding", What's the weather like? Humid?, Recommended Communities/towns, Builders, Schools, activities for children 8 and above. What sports do the children play?

      Thanks much in advance

      Cheers!

    • Relocating - Not Sure Where

      by WestbrookPaul Online Now Jun 12, 2005 at 12:06 PM

      I am from Maine just outside of Portland and would like to relocate to a place that is warmer but still provides access to outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and kayaking while being affordable. I have done some research on the Greenville, SC area and know that it has many of the qualities that I seek. It's proximity to the mountains and rivers/lakes is a big plus. My biggest concern is being welcome. I would be relocating alone, pretty much starting over. I have read some posts on the web that in parts of the South as a YANKEE I would be tolerated but never really welcome. Would I be better off considering Charlotte, Charleston, or Raleigh since they have populations that are more geographically diverse or is the Greenville area a good choice? Thanks for the advice!

      Paul
