One Of The Best Deals In Charleston, The Francis Marion Is A Historic South Carolina Hotel

History abounds throughout the country but in the South, Charleston is perhaps the most historic place you’ll find. Founded in 1670 as Charles Town, the city was the first capital of South Carolina and still reigns as the tourism capital of the state. This past year has taken a bit of a toll on the city as long-standing restaurants have shuttered due to the pandemic, and tourism, in general, is down statewide. All this is to say that if you love Charleston or want to explore the Holy City, there’s never been a better time to hit the streets in downtown Charleston.

I just spent the day in downtown Charleston and can attest that locals and visitors alike are masking up in the streets (not just indoors), and the sidewalks are not as crowded as in pre-COVID-19 times. It’s a good time to visit Charleston, and the Francis Marion Hotel just might be the best deal in town. Learn more and book a room at the Francis Marion Hotel right over here.

While in Charleston, head to Poogan’s Porch for lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch, and take yourself on a free, self-guided walking tour to discover this secret pirate’s courtyard that’s open to the public!
