Hi we are planning a small family vacation to Charleston, SC. Our son is 14 and we will be arriving 8/4 thru 8/9 via Amtrack from VA. We are looking for some suggestion on what to do, where to stay, taxi service or public transit, night life & dining.
Ive done a little research on Charleston and it seems there is more to do in South Charleston then in lieu of North Charleston? meaning most of the action is more towards the Atlantic ocean.
We're thinking around $100-120/night for room. We like shopping, sightseeing, museums, walking/bus/cruise tours, beach, Aquarium, & zoos. We are always open to try something new though. Dining we like seafood, & basically American cuisine & of course sweets :) but again will venture out of our comfort zone for something new.
The hardest part for me when planning a trip is finding a good, clean hotel/room which is near most of the action and then grasping an understanding of the distance we would need to travel from there to each destination. I would appreciate your comments &/or suggestion and thank you in advance.
