Charleston City Marina located on Lockwood Blvd in downtown Charleston, South Carolina is a outstanding facility that offers much more than just a place to keep a boat. In fact, this is a premier facility that covers 40 acres, 19,000 liner feet of dock space, the longest free-standing floating dock in the South East (the "Mega Dock"), a restaurant, an event facility, The Charleston Yacht Club, marine related shops and businesses, Charleston Community Sailing (center for 14 local high school sailing teams), and more. Many events occur here and the facilities are largely open to the public - making this a nice destination for a relaxed walk.

As you travel around the Peninsula area of Charleston you are sure to see horses and carriages as they make their way through the historic streets of this beautiful city. Taking a carriage ride in Charleston offers a unique perspective and one that is clearly narrated - and fully orchestrated - by well-trained drivers equipped with a rich depth of local knowledge.
The carriage ride in Charleston is slow and appropriate for anyone hoping to acquire a better understanding of local history and the role Charleston has played in shaping the history of this nation. As you move through the streets, you will hear tales and trivia that will remain floating in your consciousness for a lifetime. I encourage you to take the time to enjoy a carriage ride, whether you are a first-time visitor or you have lived in Charleston all along.
There are numerous carriage companies from which to select. The typical price for this unique experience is about $25 give or take. And don’t forget to bring a little extra to tip your carriage driver. To hop on your ride, head over to Market Street where you will see the primary staging point for the carriage business in Charleston.
In my opinion, the best time to enjoy carriage ride Charleston is when the temperature is below 80°. So for me, the carriage season starts sometime in October and usually concludes, at least as far as temperatures dictate, somewhere in April or May. There are 4 primary routes that drives take so speak with the company representative about which route may suite your interests best.
