Location

Charleston, SC, located roughly at the midpoint of the South Carolina coastline, is a city known for its hospitality. It's easily accessible with mild winter weather and an average high in January is 59°F. (Not to mention a near-zero risk of being snowed out of the airport.)

Getting there

The city is easily reached by plane through the Charleston International Airport, or by car via I-26, which connects to the much larger I-95 that stretches north-south along the east coast.

The airport is 12 miles from downtown, a $14 shuttle ride or $25 taxi ride. The Amtrak station is 10 miles from downtown.
