As far as airports go, the US has some very, very large airports, and then some very small ones too.
Charleston is one such small airport. Or so it seemed - 1130 at night. Only one flight landing -ours - at that time of the day. No shops etc in the arrival hall. And no taxis. Taxis have to requested for, and they take about 10-15 minutes to come from the City.
But small towns also mean smaller expenses. Small distances mean lower cost of transportation. Hotel tariffs for the same type of Hotel are significantly lower. Those are the fringe benefits.
The weather on landing was a sharp contrast to that in Houston. I was caught unprepared a second time. This time no woollens or a jacket was handy. And it was chilly.
More of Charleston as one would experience it tomorrow.
