The first thing we saw when we got to Charleston this morning was the weekly Farmers Market. In addition to farmer’s produce there was also arts and crafts, live music and entertainment, games for the kids, and food vendors.
Just a block away is the Charleston Visitor Center. There are free trolley routes that will take you to various parts of the city. We took one to Waterfront Park.
After enjoying a walk around the park we walked up the street a few blocks to the Old City Market. Built in 1841 to sell produce and meats, it now has over 100 small shops, restaurants and a flea market. It’s a long narrow building about three blocks long. The tall building houses the Daughters of the Confederacy Museum above the market.
Rather than wait for the next free trolley we just walked back to the Visitor Center. And just a block up from there is the Historic King Street. This is full of restaurants, fashion shops, and antique shops. We were pretty tired after all the walking we did today, so back to the RV for the rest of the day.
