How To Get Around :: Charleston, SC

Walking around Charleston is probably the best way to get to know the city. It has this wonderful small town feel to it, despite being a largely populated city. Bring a good pair of walking shoes, because that's pretty much the only way I got around. I brought up in my previous posts about Charleston that most of the things I discovered (Monza, the French cafe, etc) were discovered just by walking around. Most of the locals walk, as well, so sometimes the streets can be a little crowded. They haven't redone them since the 17th century, but that's one of the quirky things about Charleston that you just kind of have to love. If you walk, you can go Geocaching, stop in little shops and take in the scenery, all without having to find a place to park. Most of my pictures that I took were from when I was just walking around, as well. It's great. Good exercise, too.

There are two major pedi-cab companies in Charleston, but both are all over the downtown area. These young men work day and night to lug people around. There are hardly any regular taxi's in Charleston; it's just so small that it's kind of hard to have so many. But pedi-cabs are great. The drivers are the ones who will charge you, so it just kind of depends on how much it is going to be. They're all really friendly, so don't be afraid to talk to them!
