Customer Travel Tip: Have money because you will fall in love with the boutiques and want to buy everything!

Liked: Its a very beautiful town with darling boutiques and cafes. There are a lot of cultural things to do in the middle of Charleston and a market. If you want to go to the beach then you need a car or have to be prepared to spend A LOT of money on a taxi as there is no public transport that goes to the beach unfortunately. Great night out at Wet Willies and reasonably priced drinks and food around the town. The film "The Notebook" was filmed here so for any girl it is very exciting to come here as there is a trail you can follow. I loved Charleston and I hope anyone that visits it will love it to!

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the visiter's centre to help you plan your days, especially if your stay is not that long. The staff are very good.

Liked: Restaurants, tours, architecture, the people, and the beautiful buildings.

Disliked: Not easy to get to the beaches, or tourist attractions further away from downtown if you don't have a car.

Trip Type:

Customer Travel Tip: Plan ahead on how your getting to your accommodation if you don't have a car. If not, kick back and relax!

Liked: I loved Charleston. It has such a great atmosphere and fantastic weather durning my visit there. There was so much to do and see in and around Charleston. Lots of yummy places to eat at.

Disliked: If you didn't have a car it was extremely difficult to get out to the plantations etc without going through a tour company. Also, the greyhound and Amtrak stations are out of the way and are difficult to get to with public transport again.
