“Very helpful and beautiful ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the best visitors centers we have been in. Charleston has a lot to offer and can be overwhelming but they have a lot of people to help, maps and booklets. The parking is cheap and the free trollies pick up directly out front so it's a great place to start your day. You can also book tours there.

“Charleston Visitors Center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

The Visitors Center in the Charleston Historic District was an attractive building and a good place to gather literature. It is also a good place to hop on the free shuttle that runs thru the historic district. Overall, however, its just your typical visitor center -- intent on selling tours, booking reservations, stc. There was not much opportunity to just get general information on touring Charleston. I think I'm somewhat spoiled by the Visitor Centers in the National Parks.

“thank you to Charleston Visitor's Center for keeping us grounded!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

we were frustrated and somewhat lost, and we found the visitors center, where we met the nicest girl, who was a WEALTH of knowledge(I can't remember her name...) and just so helpful. She told us about the bus system, and gave us contact info on the tour we had missed because we were lost, and gave great suggestions. They seem to ALWAYS be open, which was wonderful.
