re: Charleston
The Travel Board has tons of good threads about Charleston, but I am sure we can help just as well.

How old are you? And are you just looking for nightlife, restaurants, etc?

re: Charleston
The Battery where we fired the first the shots of the Civil War.

Rainbow Row which is next to the battery. (Houses that have been there since and before the Civil War)

What used to be called the "Slave Market" which is on Market St in downtown Chucktown. Some Geechee/Gullah women sell straw baskets there. There's also some history of the massive earthquake that happened in Charleston down there.

Charlestown Landing is nice for out of state tourists especially.

Old Sheldon Church is a must see. It's near Beaufort but is a very, very short drive from Chucktown.

re: Charleston
Kickin Chicken was my favorite when I was in undergrad at CofC.

I’d also recommend Taco Boy in Folly Beach. Great frozen screwdrivers.

Poogan’s Porch is a great dinner place. As is Husk.

This includes the outlet mall!

I spent a year of my life one evening at the Walmart near there. I’ve never seen anything like it before. I’m amazed I’m here to tell about it.

Another big thing, Uber is pricey so if you go out be prepared for it

If you choose the ride share option it actually isn't that bad.

I did this when I first moved to DC, but picking up like dropping off 2-3 other people on my single trip could add up to like 40 minutes on my trip. The few extra bucks became worth it to get a direct ride.

re: Charleston
That's what I did when I was in DC. Lyft's ride share is much better. They pick you up at your location and don't have you walking all over the place to find where they're gonna pick you up at like Uber.

I had Uber drivers saying they were a minute away and then cancel. Happened a lot. Never had that issue with Lyft.

I'll be back in DC in a couple of months. You're still gonna be there?

re: Charleston
UberPOOL and Lyft shares aren’t available anywhere in SC.
Because I do drive for Uber/Lyft currently full time (lay offs a week before Christmas SUCK, especially with a newborn coming next month) I can tell y’all a little bit of a secret when it comes to drivers. We can’t see where y’all are going, people will get a minute away and since they’ve been driving more than 2 mins, they’ll cancel saying That the passenger requested cancel and get the cancellation fee (5 on Lyft, 75% of the fee on Uber) and basically make money with no work.

This is incorrect. Slaves were not sold there. It has always been a City market for fresh produce and now for souvenirs

re: Charleston
I never said slaves were actually sold there.

It has been called the slave market for as long as I've been alive and long before I ever graced this earth.

re: Charleston
It was called the Slaves' Market. Note the apostrophe. The city market (Slaves' Market) was where slaves were allowed to go and sell things they cooked, made, created.

Slaves were sold elsewhere.

But tbh for someone asking about the sights of Charleston, there didnt need to be a Slave reference.
