Head here early Saturday morning to stock up on artisanal products. Afterwards, head to the Charleston Crab Shack to dine on fresh seafood dishes.

Searching for a picnic spot? Riley Waterfront Park is a grassy area that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Bring a blanket and some nibbles as you look out for leaping dolphins on the horizon.
