    Downtown Charleston is where it's at. I highly recommend to stay here since there's not much else happening outside of the city. Filled with old-school architecture, bars, and shops, everything is within walking distance.

    Park your car and then just plan to walk. If its day time, then visit the market area. Start at the market, and please wander off way from this area to see the beautiful architecture. Many restaurants, live music, stores, show rooms, etc. to entertain you. Do walk down King Street with all the major stores: Saks Fifth Avenue, Banana Republic, and more....

    Nighttime, is great for having so many places with great food, live music, and many places to dance....

    Charleston is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in America. It has been named a top destination by Conde Nast's Traveler magazine for several years in a row.
    Stroll the narrow streets and enjoy house museums, art galleries, pretty parks, and glimpses of stunning gardens. The shopping is superb.

    Indaco Italian Food & Wine is located at
    526 King St and serves
    Rustic Italian Fare. It is
    an Indigo Road Restaurant boasting
    Executive Chef Robert Berry. This spot has a lively,
    warm atmosphere, hip Upper King St location, and the best Pizzas this side of Italy!

    Lots to do in downtown Charleston - we like to just wander and look at the old houses, go out to the battery, and enjoy the shops at the old slave market.

    Beautiful, friendly, historic, easy to walk, with plenty of places to stop and sit or shops to go into a browse. Of course, go to Hyman's Seafood for dinner - you can't afford to miss out on it!! There is a little salt shop in the historic district that is just fascinating as well. I made some incredibly tasty purchases there.
