Myself and wife were travelling down the east coast for a few weeks (on a budget) and wanted to visit Charleston so we booked into the economy inn based purely on the price.

I was in Charleston, South Carolina on May 31st through April 3ed for three nights during the 28th annual 10k Cooper River Bridge Run held on April 2, 2005.
