Charleston: A Cool City When It’s Not Hot

Your visit will be infinitely more enjoyable if you keep your car parked and use the many available forms of public transportation: city buses and taxis, free hop-on/hop-off trolley buses, free Scoop Car electric taxis, horse-drawn carriages and human powered pedicabs.
