I used to live in Charleston from 1996 through 2007. It has become so crowded and overgrown that it's not a pleasant visiting experience. Came to visit friends and had to plan my day trips around heavy traffic times. If you stay downtown, don't have a vehicle. Take shuttles because there is no place to park.

I shopped for hours at the City Market. The variety of items for sale was outstanding. Most of the "stores" sold local items and artwork, all at a VERY reasonable price. I loved it!

Many items are featured in the market, from foods to jewelry to clothing to hand made baskets. It is only open during the day time and then all the products are removed each night.

You walk down a few blocks of indoor mall. It breaks up at the street crossings. It's a neat concept and great people watching. It's in the center of the historic section so it's on the way with other things to see. The shops had a variety of tourist goods mostly cheap I thought. A few neat things.

4/12/2017 We enjoyed this area of Market Square! We stopped here for about 20 min. You can see a lot here. This place is a sure stop if you drop into Charleston, SC.
