Did you end up going? I booked my JetBlue promo flight to Charleston. The complete lack of info on DDF is not encouraging. I guess I can still channel and switch to somewhere else if necessary.

I'm sorry I missed this thread earlier, but Charleston is amazing historic beach town to visit. It's home to second oldest Shul in the USA. Here is the Kosher food information: http://www.bsbisynagogue.com/about/kosher/ Let me know what info you're looking for and I'll try best to answer.

I'm booked for 2 days/1 night (arriving ~9am and departing ~6pm the next day). Hotel recommendations? Top attractions? Is it worth renting a car, or will I be able to fill that time with attractions in walking distance (or Uber I guess, as long as it doesn't end up costing more than a rental).

Just from googling it seems like the beach and the historic area aren't near each other. Which area would you recommend staying in?

Charleston airport has a kosher cookie and ice cream kiosk as of 6 months ago. All products are sourced from the main branch in Charleston.

Working on my itinerary and can't decide which plantation to visit. So far, I've ruled out Boone. Any advice?
