Everyone knows that people sell their wares in and around the City Market. While a great opportunity and experience, that is not the only location! Charleston has a great local heritage, and that is seen in the myriad farmers markets in the area. No matter your corner of the tri-county, there is a market near, with all sorts of good things for sale.

Being a coastal town, much of Charleston's culture sprang up around water. Even today, people come from miles away (or just down the road) to tan and spend time with their families on Charleston's white sandy beaches. But not every beach is a good fit for every person. Like people, the beaches all have different personalities and things to offer. So before you dive in, check out these descriptions of Charleston's different area beaches!

Whether a college student, young club hopper, or a curious tourist, there are plenty of reasons to be on the Peninsula after sundown. While there, it is easy to build up an appetite. But after all the quaint diners and swanky restaurants are closed, where is there to turn? Plenty of places! Compiled here is a list of five restaurants downtown that are open even after most people have gone to bed. They are listed in order of closing times, from earliest to latest, for easy browsing. So grab a map or your bicycle and head on in to these tasty late-night eats!

It seems that going 'thrifting'--a word for shopping at secondhand stores such as Goodwill--has become a cool thing to do, particularly among the younger generations. But those people are not the only ones that shop at thrift stores. Many people frequent these locales for various reasons, and Community Thrift in North Charleston is a good store to consider!

Charleston is well known for its cuisine, particularly seafood and old-fashioned Southern home cooking. While these styles of food are good, they are not all that Charleston has to offer: far from it. Tucked less than a block south of Marion Square is Eat-A-Pita, a Mediterranean street food hotspot.
