Charleston, SC Master Thread
« on: April 07, 2015, 01:58:37 AM »
I hope to visit after Pesach. Has anyone been to Charleston? Any recommendations?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

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?

I'm going to Charleston in late April. Anyone have any suggestions about what to do?

I've already got:
  • Fort Sumter
  • Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum
  • Charleston Museum
  • Aiken-Rhett House
  • Nathaniel Russell House
  • Old Slave Mart Museum
  • Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon
  • Rainbow Row
  • Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Tour
  • Historic Charleston Tours - Horse Drawn Carriage Tour
  • Old City Jail
  • Either Magnolia Plantation & Gardens or McLeod Plantation Historic Site

Anything else I should check out?

How was your trip? Am thinking about spending a day or so here on my road trip to the southern USA.

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.
