Where to Live
Historic architecture meets modern design in Harleston Village. A variety of housing options live in Harleston Village, where you can find a condo to suit a lower budget or an ornate mansion tailored to your exact tastes.

Where to Eat
While many of the area's restaurants are located outside of the neighborhood's bounds, Harleston Village residents do have a few favorite eateries close to home. Circa 1886 has a menu as varied as the real estate in Harleston Village and features such delicacies as antelope, foie gras, and pork cheek. For something a little more casual, consider 60 Bull Cafe, a soul food restaurant with tacos, burritos, and some of the best fried chicken biscuits you could ask for. Just east of the neighborhood, the French Quarter offers some of the city's best eateries for seafood, Lowcountry cuisine, and European fare.
What You'll See
With the College of Charleston based in Harleston Village, you can count on seeing a lot of students and faculty around as well as professionals who desire the amenities of downtown Charleston at a lower price point. The historic character of Harleston Village has been preserved in its beautiful homes and buildings. Waterside amenities at Colonial Lake and Ashley River are popular places to gather.
Friday Night Fun
Close proximity to downtown means no shortage of good bars and live music. Dozens of cafes, eateries, and pubs are within walking distance of the neighborhood. While Harleston Village doesn't have many bars within its boundaries, you can always find a good drink at Circa 1886. Try the "Mississippi Violet" on a warm summer evening.
The Perfect Sunday
Colonial Lake is a great spot to spend a Sunday. Adjacent to the water, a park offers tennis courts, a baseball field, and a playground. Afterwards, pop into Queen Street Grocery to grab a crepe before grabbing a few necessities for the week. If you're into boating or hoping to learn, Charleston City Marina is just east of the neighborhood, and Charleston Sailing School offers lessons and certification programs.
Like other downtown neighborhoods in Charleston, Harleston Village has its fair share of multimillion-dollar estates, but its condominium options can be a bit more affordable than other areas. Buyers who find themselves priced out of the French Quarter or South of Broad may have better luck in Harleston Village.
Harleston Village 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.
