Marina or Anchorage Recommend in Charleston, SC

We're heading down the ICW, are in North Myrtle Beach now, but intend to spend longer time in Charleston, SC to relax and sightsee. Can anyone recommend a marina and/or anchorage that you really like and tell why? If at a marina, a shower and laundry etc. are required. If an anchorage, a spot enough for a dingy ride to a dock. Thanks!

Anchor off the city marina. Dink in but not to the dinghy dock, it dries out at low tide. Be sneaky and dink into one of the floating docks. If you want to go into a marina city marina is great, watch the currents. They have a shuttle into town.

Anchoring off the City Marina is a bit dicey with the strong current and wakes and is rather open if it is blowing. It used to be a lot safer when the city ran and maintained moorings.
The City Marina is pricey but pus you right in the heart of everything.
Last time in...we used Patriots Point Marina near the Yorktown Battleship. It was reasonable, modern and with very friendly people. It is no in town but they have free shuttle to town and to the gorcery stores and west marine and we stayed for a month quite comfortably.
So...for a quick in and out I would say City Marina...but for a few days or more, Patriots point...(charleston harbor marina)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I spent a couple of nights at the City Marina, on the MegaDock (as they call it) and there were plenty of boats anchored out as well. I'd use cam's recommendation.

Thanks for your advice on marinas in Charleston. We booked a spot here at the City Marina and so far so good. Was a long walk to the old town but the kids enjoyed getting out and gave us a chance to get the lay of the land this afternoon Thanks again!

If you leave the boat in the state for more than 60 days, you have to pay taxes on it... 6% IIRC.
