After-Christmas Shopping and a Downtown Charleston Hotel
The holidays are stressful for everyone, all the planning, running around, baking, and general craziness of Christmas can take a toll on stress levels. If you are looking to unwind after the holidays, then take a weekend vacation to Charleston and stay at our boutique Charleston hotel. The French Quarter Inn’s luxurious accommodations were picked as one of the best hotel in South Carolina by Condé Nast traveler. If you want to do some after-Christmas shopping to help unwind, then check out the Charleston City Market in historic downtown Charleston.
The Charleston City Market has been the central hub of Charleston for over 200 years. The building was originally completed in 1841, just before the civil war. The Greek Revival-style Market Hall building now houses the Daughters of the Confederacy Museum. Located under the museum and behind it, are over 100 vendor booths that are ready to sell you some authentic Charleston merchandise. You can get one of the hand-made sweetgrass baskets that Charleston is known for. If baskets aren’t your thing there are loads of other options to choose from including jewelry, paintings, wood carvings, and even shark teeth. There are also several food options to try inside the market place including some exotic offerings. If you are looking for more of a sit-down option after a long day of shopping inside the market, there are dozens of restaurants within walking distance of the market including Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, The Peninsula Grill and Hank’s seafood restaurant.
