Where to Live
Housing around King Street mainly consists of condominium buildings and townhomes, but on occasion a classic Chucktown standalone stunner will hit the market. This historic district offers amenities aplenty, and some buildings include impressive courtyards accessible only to homeowners. With so much happening within this highly walkable corridor, any location along King Street is a good one.
Where to Eat
King Street recently underwent some major renovations and is now home to some of the most exclusive restaurants, cocktail bars, and cafes. The trendy food and great drinks flow freely on King Street, and the historic district is home perhaps most notably to the storied atmospheres and well-crafted menus of Prohibition, The Ordinary, Callie's Hot Little Biscuit, and Hall's Chophouse.
What You'll See
Colorful facades and brick crosswalks outline bustling shopping districts and social hotspots. Cultural gems like the Charleston Library Society building and Riviera Theater make clear the street's historic significance, attracting both Charleston residents and tourists. Some of the area's permanent residents enjoy fantastic views of it all from second-story lofts while others appreciate the luxury of a single-family home tucked away just outside of the main drag.
Friday Night Fun
For a fun Friday night out, there's no shortage of things to do on King Street. With art galleries, fine dining establishments, cocktail bars, and more, you might only leave the neighborhood to go to work. If you're after some early evening activities for a reprieve from the heat, consider having a cup of coffee and meandering through the endless antique stores in the area. After dark, sample a new craft beer at Closed for Business (they're open more often than not).
The Perfect Sunday
King Street is well-known for its Second Sundays, where you can enjoy local vendors, great food, and wine on a gorgeously carefree afternoon in Charleston. When you get the urge to commune with nature, there are several parks in the area. Washington Square contains some towering oak trees as well as a model of the Washington monument, while Marion Square hosts farmers markets and other events on its expansive lawn.
Homes around this popular street typically have a high asking price, but their unique designs and fantastic location are well worth it. Many of the newer condos and townhomes are manageable for a young professional's or family's budget, but the history and style of the neighborhood puts many houses and condominiums in an upscale buyer's price range.
King Street is very walkable and fairly easy to traverse by bike as well. CARTA (Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority) operates bus lines in the area for inexpensive rides around town. Buses shuttle residents from Charleston Visitor Center to Charleston International Airport and elsewhere in town. I-26 is the main road leading out of the peninsula.
