We are planning a trip to Charleston as part of our summer vacation. Traveling in July or Aug. We are a family of 4 to include a 16 year old and 11 year old. Can anyone recommend a nice, but moderately priced hotel, on the outskirts of Charleston? We don't mind driving into Charleston, and believe we could save a few bucks staying outside of the city. Also, would like to spend a day or two at the beach. How far is the beach from Charleston? I will rely on the advice of all of my Tripadvisor buddies! Thanks so much for your time.
