Stately row houses, ornate Greek and colonial styles, and charmingly southern estates are the norm in South of Broad. Homeowners further northeast will be within walking distance of the restaurants and bars in the nearby French Quarter, while those in the southwest enjoy more peace and quiet. Ornate mansions and picturesque streetscapes can be found throughout South of Broad.
Where to Eat
Charleston is a foodie's paradise, and homeowners in South of Broad are near some of the city's best neighborhoods for good eating. While South of Broad is mostly residential, the French Quarter and Ansonborough to the north contain excellent options for seafood, Lowcountry cuisine, and European fare. Just north of Broad Street is Husk, an upscale destination where locally sourced dishes with a Southern flavor are served in a lovely Victorian home.
What You'll See
Local landmarks are part of the daily routine in South of Broad. Near the southeast corner of the neighborhood, a group of historic homes sit near the water. The Calhoun Mansion, a 35-room Italianate mansion built in 1876, is frequently visited by tourists and locals alike, as is the William Washington House, the Roper House, and the Edmondston-Alston House. Many of the neighborhoods finest homes are privately owned, but their facades can still be appreciated on leisurely drives through South of Broad.
Friday Night Fun
Spend some time on a summer afternoon touring Heyward-Washington House, the Calhoun Mansion, or, for a spooky experience, go on a ghost tour in The Old Exchange Building and Provost Dungeon. Head to the French Quarter when you're craving a craft beer or cocktail. Blind Tiger Pub is one popular stop with an aesthetic that recalls the Prohibition-era speakeasies in the area that once operated in secrecy.
The Perfect Sunday
Take a stroll through Rainbow Row before having brunch at a cafe in the French Quarter. Take a horse-drawn carriage back toward White Point Garden to read a book in the shade or tour a historic home. Just northwest of the neighborhood, residents sail toy boats and cast out fishing lines at Colonial Lake, which is also adjacent to a playground area and tennis courts.
This highly coveted neighborhood contains high-priced homes to match. Multimillion-dollar mansions in South of Broad cater to a luxury market, and even the area's condominiums are on the higher end.
This area is fairly walkable and bike-friendly, though you probably can't complete all of your errands within the neighborhood's boundaries. CARTA (Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority) operates bus lines in the area for inexpensive rides around town. I-26 is the main road leading out of the peninsula toward Charleston International Airport. Parking can be a bit tricky in town, and its best to find a garage or metered spot if you can.
