This was a beautiful and well stocked visitor's center. There were books there that were unique to Charleston. It was well located to the major attractions in the city. I found a great book that I purchased.

We were pleased with the information and the pamphlets we were able to pick up. One great benefit is that the visitor's center is located on the route of the free transportation provided by the City of Charleston. That is a big bonus!

Clean, large, well staffed, easy to find. Film to introduce city was well worth it. You can also buy tickets for various attractions. We bought tickets for a horse-drawn carriage tour, which was quite informative.
