Charleston Travel Guide

Hours of Operation

Like most American cities, Charleston businesses generally operate on a 9-to-5 schedule. Shops downtown will often open at 10 am and close at 6 pm, with some conveniently staying open until 7; around the market area, clothing stores stay open as late as 9, and the fresh-made-candy shops and souvenir stores may stay open even later.
