Visited a popular city, Charleston, SC. Spent a day there.
Unfortunately, there is no easy access to most amenities from the anchorage and city marina. Walked quite a bit to take two free trolleys to downtown / tourist area. Walked around there, had a restaurant meal, visited old local marketplace, picked up groceries on the way back. Nice touristy place.

Nice small town, with pretty waterside. Tourist oriented, but useful services (marine supplies, repairs, groceries, hardware stores, fast-food, etc.) are not in walking distance.
Anchored one night, dinghied to shore to walk around, eat icecream and do some laundry.
In the morning, filled up diesel, toped up water tanks and left, following ICW further South.
