The Post and Courier posted an article entitled, “Grand Strand, Lowcountry wrestle with beach visitor parking” written by Prentiss Findlay.
Here are some excerpts…
“From the booming Grand Strand to the bustling Lowcountry, the roadside turf for beach day-trippers is shrinking as cities impose new rules in response to resident complaints about traffic congestion, rowdy crowds and unsafe streets.”
This was said of Myrtle Beach, but surely applies to the Low Country as well: “Parking problems that used to happen only on holidays such as Easter or the Fourth of July have become an issue every weekend…”
“On peak days, Charleston County’s main beaches — Sullivan’s, Folly Beach and Isle of Palms — may suddenly swell from a few thousand residents to more than 10,000 visitors. Traffic can back up for miles…”
Beginning in Mid March the Charleston Water Taxi’s schedule expanded to daily from 9 am to 8 pm. Prior to that they were mostly open on Saturdays.
There are four departure points with different departing times. The four points are:
- Aquarium Wharf/MaritimeCenter
- Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum
- Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina
- Waterfront Park/Market St/Historic District
