City of North Charleston

by broadband2341

What are the boundaries of the City of North Charleston and whats to see or do there?

Re: City of North Charleston

by karraokey

The cone shaped boundary lines can be found at http://72.159.158.73/CityMap/ on the City of North Charleston website. A nice mall and Wal Mart and plenty of restaurants can be found at Ashley Phosphate Rd. East exit 209 off I-26 just west of the airport. Exit 211 leads you to Remount Road which is now known as "Little Mexico" because of illegals and the welfare crowd. Stall Road and Ashley Heights off Ashley Phosphate Rd. West are well known for illegals. The 213 West Exit will lead you to the "Center Pointe" area beside the 18,000 seat coliseum. Another Wal Mart and Sam's Club, hotels, Tanger Outlet, IHOP and other chain restaurants are at Center Pointe. Once a strong, proud middle class military town we have digressed with the closing of the Naval Base and Shipyard in 1995, and the institution of political correctness, integration and welfare programs. Instead of crime happening only in the projects like before, it happens everywhere. Bank robberies occur weekly. There is a movie theater at the 213 East exit and stores and car repair shops along Rivers Avenue/Highway 52. North Charleston becomes a traffic nightmare from 4 until at least 6:30 pm. A fender bender on Westbound I-26 sends thousands of cars off the interstate and bottlenecks Dorchester, Rivers, and North Rhett. The 526 Mark Clark Expressway clogs from the South and North as traffic tries to get on I-26. Rubbernecking is a horrible problem as gawkers slow opposite direction traffic. Smoking is allowed in businesses as of Nov. '07. A 2 a.m. bar closing ordinance is being considered. City of Charleston has no smoking and 2 a.m. bar closing in effect. So come to North Charleston and smoke and enjoy it.

Travel Tips for Charleston

Charleston's Candy Kitchen

by tpangelinan

The Charleston's Candy Kitchen is a fun place to duck into for a few reasons, 1 the candy, you can sit and watch them make taffy or fudge. The ice cream is really good and popular. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the place is very clean. Just a side note that they have public restrooms that are also clean.

Beloved artist

by ZanieOR

Elizabeth O'Neil Verner, whom I admit I'd barely heard that I can remember before my trip to Charleston, is a beloved and famous American artist from Charleston, noted especially for her etchings. There was one hanging in our B & B.
Permanent collections of her work can be found in such places as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Boston Art Museum.
She wrote a book that I picked up in Charleston titled "Mellowed by Time: A Charleston Notebook", illustrated with her pencil drawings, that is absolutely charming and probably the favorite "souvenir" from my trip.
So if you're going to visit Charleston, learn a little about her. And the book is highly recommended (see Shopping Tip).
From the jacket cover: "Mellowed by Time" is the confession of faith of a Charlestonian. Others have often wondered what makes Charlestonians so fiercely loyal to their city: Mrs. Verner has the answer. ...."

Charleston Riverdogs Baseball

by TheTravelingNerd

The Riverdogs are our minor league baseball team. They're owned or co-owned by Bill Murray so you might be lucky enought to see him. They have alot of theme nights and usually get a big turn out. Great place to take the kids. They have concession food and beer, all the usual basebal stadium stuff. A plus is the parking is close and usually easy to find. Also, the main police station is across the street so it's very safe. Anything to be comfortable and stay cool.

Fort Sumter

by tatyanap

Fort Sumter... What can I say? You can feel history there!

America's most tragic conflict ignited at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, when a chain reaction of social, economic and political events exploded into civil war. At the heart of these events was the issue of states rights versus federal authority flowing over the underlying issue of slavery.

Chandlery

by grandmaR about J. J. W. Luden's

Luden's is an old time ships provisioner in Charleston. Established in 1867 as a ship’s chandler, J.J.W. Luden’s is the oldest retail establishment in Charleston.

Luden’s got its start supplying paint, groceries, hardware --even rum-- to sailors calling on Charleston’s busy seaport. With the advent of steam and diesel engines, Luden’s shifted its product assortment to meet the needs of the local mariners. In 1964, Luden’s was sold to the Butler family, who has carried on the tradition of providing the finest provisions available for the active Lowcountry lifestyle. Bob went there and bought something for $16.95, but I don't have a clue what he bought. All I have is the receipt for his purchase.

I know he would not have bought the 'sailor bags' because, as useful as those are, he can make them himself more cheaply. According to the website, they also have an array of marine supplies, clothing, maps, fishing tackle, canoes and foul weather gear, plus gifts - things like dog collars. But we don't fish, we don't have a dog, and we don't have a canoe. So I don't know.
