Charleston Airport Guide

Charleston is brimming with history and through luck and fate, many of its very early buildings from colonial days have survived. The historic quarter is found between the Ashley and Cooper Rivers and with one of the earliest preservation orders made in the US, it has some amazing buildings from throughout its history. There’s Fort Sumter where the Civil War began, the Battery and White Point Gardens where you’ll find the ruins of the English fort and the Charleston Museum which you need to visit to bring all the history together.

Charleston Airport Directions

Route 26 takes you southeast from the airport right down to Charleston’s waterfront. The whole journey need not take more than 30 minutes, even at peak times.

Charleston Airport Parking

Parking at Charleston Airport is immediately opposite the terminal building. There’s multi-storey parking immediately ahead of you and cheaper surface parking beyond that. If you’re in a hurry, you can use valet parking too.

Charleston Airport Flight Information

Charleston Airport is a big domestic airport only 11 miles from the city. Whilst there are no flights from abroad, you can easily get a flight into Chicago, New York or Atlanta from Europe and the UK and make the connection to Charleston from there.

There’s a wonderful boutique hotel called the Andrew Pinkney Inn, recently restored and with amazing facilities. It costs around $90 a night but it’s well worth it. As an alternative, the Hawthorn Suites are close to the city centre and only cost around $30 a night.

Charleston Info

For 150 years, Charleston was the fifth biggest city in the US and whilst it’s slipped substantially in the list today, it still is a fascinating place to visit. High on the list of America’s politest and friendliest cities, you’ll find a historic city that was one of the first settlements in the New World. The city’s port economy is bolstered by tourism and the presence of a US Base nearby. Badly damaged when Hurricane Hugo made landfall in the harbour, the city has now revived.
