My wife is running a bus trip to North and South Carolina (from Pennsylvania) for a local gardening group (Hardy Plant Society). The ladies on the trip (and the odd man or two) enjoy good food at night. They are not particularly price-sensitive and they like to be able to walk from their hotel if possible. Average age north of 70. This will be at the end of March.
In Columbia, they are staying at the Hampton Inn on Gervais St.
In Charleston, at the Best Western King Charles Inn, Meeting St.
Any advice from local experts would be much appreciated.
