Parking in Historic District

Hi Everybody,

would someone know what would be the most convenient parking lot in the historic district ?

Our hotel is not in the historic district at all; We would like to park close to the historic district, so we could then discover it "by foot". If you know the location of parking lots that would fit this purpose, thanks to share ! if you know how much it costs, it would be perfect, if not, do not mind.

Thanks to everybody who can have valuable information !

Most of the time there are spots available for free on Murray Boulevard. (click on "Map") Our historic district is very very small and you can park there and walk anywhere you need to with little effort.

When will you be visiting?

Welcome!

Not sure how long you are staying, but if you plan on doing a carriage ride one day use Palmetto carriage. They have a coupon on their website for free parking in their parking lot. Historically they have let folks keep their car parked in the lot as long as they want after the carriage tour. Other than that use the link previously posted to find lots/garages. Here is a link to the coupon page for Palmetto Carriage. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for the tips, it will be very useful.

We will come to Charleston in the summer. In fact, we are preparing a 3 weeks tour in the USA, from New-York, to Miami. We'll arrive to Charleston after Shenandoah. We'll have one day in Charleston, so we intended indeed to try a carriage tour in the historic district, then discover it by foot. In the afternoon, we'll head out to a plantation, I thought about Boone Hall maybe. We have not booked our hotel yet, but according to what we saw regarding the prices, we'll probably book one either in Mount Pleasant, or not far from the airport.

If someone has other suggestions, do not hesitate !

After Charleston, we'll go to Savannah !

Stay in Mt Pleasant. You'll take Hwy 17 out pf Charleston to go to Savannah and Mt. P. is closer to your route. Any of the Patriot's Point places would be nice. You may also want to check with hotels downtown to see if they have any special deals. It's really nice to stay down there on your first visit.

Since you only have one day in Charleston, I would suggest maybe the King Charles Inn downtown (about the same price as those in Mt P and a much better location for touring) and to plan to stay downtown for all your touring. There is so much to do one day in the historic district, you will not be enough time to even see it, much less all the things around Charleston. Sometimes, you can get good hotel rates on Priceline.

I agree. If you are going to Charleston for just one night, stay in the downtown area. It's worth it, to get the most out of your visit, even if it costs a bit more.
