"King Street is just so beautiful with the windows and decorations. And the shopping is just the best," said Lucas. "And there is plenty of parking especially with the 2-hour free parking vouchers provided by the City, available at all of the merchants. After parking buy a CARTA pass and jump on and off of the great Dash Buses to ride up and down King Street."
These merchants participate in the Parking with Purchase Program. They want to treat you like the VIP you are, and will validate an hour or more of parking at any City of Charleston parking garage when you shop or dine with them.
