Charleston, South Carolina
TOP 10 STAYS
Charleston is one of the hottest tourist destinations in the U.S. right now, so staying here is going to come at a price; but from chain hotels to luxury boutiques, there’s something for everyone. Your best budget bets will be outside of the city in nearby Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley, and North Charleston. Be sure to ask about package deals with area attractions like the aquarium or carriage tours, when booking. Summer is peak tourist season, which means high prices and even higher temperatures and humidity.
