My (pregnant) wife and I are looking to head down Memorial Day weekend. Don't know much about the city except it's a great food town and is by the water. A couple questions- - is it better to stay on the water like folly beach or should we stay downtown Charleston? - should we rent a car? We are an active couple that enjoy doing things rather than just lay on the beach (although enjoy that as well). Can someone give me the 40,000 foot view of Charleston? Thanks in advance!
