we were stabbing in Myrtle Beach for a golfing vacation and decided to take the day off and drive down to Charleston. It is a pleasant 2 hours drive. On the way you can see all the sweet grass basket stands in Mt. Pleasant along the highway. They still sell them that way. We found an easy and adequate parking garage nearby the City Market. We walked over there and wandered through about 3 blocks of vendors, many of them sweet grass basket weavers. The baskets are not inexpensive but beautiful. We also wandered over to the Belmont Charleston Place Hotel and saw the really neat miniature train set up in their lobby PLUS they have real Christmas set up throughout. Quite amazing in this day and age regarding fire safety.
All in all, it was a pleasant day. The City Market was ok nothing spectacular as it seems to cater to the cruise ships that come into port.
One visit was all I needed.
