The Sights and Sounds of Downtown Charleston South Carolina


After the conclusion of the Sunday Historic Walking Tour, Jeff (Indulge the Wanderlust) and I wanted to see more of downtown Charleston, South Carolina. There’s so much history and culture that Charleston has to offer including beautiful waterfronts and parks.

In almost every street corner, you can find hand weaved baskets for sale. Be aware that they are very pricey in historic downtown Charleston.


There is a huge indoor flea market on Market Street that sells handmade wares, trinkets, and leather goods.
