Charleston, South Carolina is a destination with diverse attractions suited to all types of visitors, from couples in search of a romantic venture, to group getaways and family gatherings. Luckily, Charleston is flush with restaurants, museums, and accommodations fit to welcome any guest. When it comes to choosing the ideal Charleston hotel for your family, there are often many factors to consider: Should we stay on the peninsula? Are we within walking distance of the attractions we want to see? What kid-friendly amenities do Charleston hotels typically offer? Will we have access to transportation from our hotel?
Charleston is a small, historical city, with narrow, one-way streets, and many residential areas tucked in between shopping and dining districts. For this reason, driving and parking can be difficult at times. Thankfully, Charleston is one of the most walkable cities in the country! Ditch the rental car, and choose a hotel within walking distance of your favorite Charleston attractions, or one that offers shuttle services or tours, such as Belmond Charleston Place or King Charles Inn.
Lowcountry Charleston is home to breathtaking scenery, both on the peninsula and beyond. When deciding which hotel to book for your family's next Charleston vacation, consider staying at a hotel on the beach, such as the all-inclusive Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, or the Tides beachfront hotel on Folly Beach. For a private beach and marina minutes from downtown by car or water taxi, book your rooms at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina.
