Lots of cultural stuff to check out. Not great in August because of the heat. Lots of history. Fun restaurants in the area.

This market is a good place to stroll and see some of the local vendors and artisans. The market is a straight line made up of multiple buildings (some air conditioned and some not).

I am Not sure about that... didn't see any dogs on leashes in the market area. We live here in Charleston but I've never brought our dogs into the market.
