Where to Live

Bogard and King streets will provide the traditional Charleston style you seek, and some of the lesser-known roads and avenues like Rutledge offer the same style and charm as well. While their vintage exteriors have been maintained, many of the Cannonborough-Elliotborough digs have been renovated inside with modern designs and appliances.

Where to Eat

You're going to want to go to Xiao Bao Biscuit, where a variety of creative, Asian-fusion dishes are served in a converted gas station. The Bo Bo Ji is a cold dish that answers your prayers for reprieve from the heat, but there are tons of options (and heat levels) to choose from. For the more traditionally American taste buds, walk a few paces down the street to visit Hominy Grill. The She Crab Soup and Charleston Nasty Biscuit are the stuff of legends.

What You'll See

Much like the other boroughs, you'll note an eclectic mix of students, tourists, and locals alike. It's hard to share when you've got a good thing going, but the great news is that there's enough of this borough to go around for everyone. New restaurants and shops have popped up over the last few years, changing along with the culture of Charleston to meet the wants and needs of all who choose the Holy City to call home.

Friday Night Fun

This neighborhood is not a quiet one on the weekends, as the college students and tourists know how to have a rip-roaring good time. Many of the residents of Cannonborough-Elliotborough are associated with the colleges in the area, and they blow off steam from a stressful week at any of the great bars here. From Warehouse to Pour Taproom to Prohibition, there's a good time to be had by all. If a quieter atmosphere is what you seek, have an early evening treat at Sugar Bakeshop on Cannon or Five Loaves Cafe on the same street.

The Perfect Sunday

Take a stroll around the Medical University of South Carolina campus then stop by one of the area's shops. When you're hungry, hit up Tapio for Taiwanese street food and great boba tea.

Price Vibes

This is one of the more affordable boroughs if you seek downtown living amongst all the best Charleston has to offer. Cannonborough-Elliotborough contains both midrange and upscale condos and homes for sale, making the dream of putting down roots here an attainable one.

Transportation Options

Cannonborough-Elliotborough is very walkable and fairly easy to traverse by bike as well. The neighborhood's public transportation options are a bit limited, but there are bus lines. CARTA (Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority) operates buses in the area for inexpensive rides around town. I-26 is the main road leading out of the peninsula toward Charleston International Airport.
