Only about 20 minutes away, the old historic shopping district is a shopper's heaven with lots of food & libation establishments to recuperate in. The restaurants are the finest & abundant as is the nightlife.

This is the main shopping area for Charleston. Old downtown setting with lots of retailers. Everything from an Oops Outlet to Victoria's Secret to Lucky to Savannah Bee to high end such as Coach and Louis Vitton.

A short walk down Cannon Street to King Street. Once on King, turn right. King street offers a wide variety of boutique stores and major retail clothiers. Some of our favorites include West Elm, Hampden Clothing, and Christian Michi.

There is so much fun, shopping, food to be had! Try going to upper king street to find spots where the locals go! There are great restuarants, roof top bars, nightlife, shops, and more! Callie's Biscuits is a great breakfast spot. Ask for Carrie the owner. She is great!

Lower King has great antiquing as well!

You have to see downtown Charleston! King Street has our finest shopping. Everything from the Forever 21 to Gucci and many private stores.

Also, walk or take a rickshaw down Rainbow Row and the Battery. Enjoy!

Great history here, cool buildings, good places to eat and shop. Knocking off a couple of stars because of the people... Southern hospitality skipped this pocket of South Carolina! :-/

If you are in the mood to shop, this is the street! Many national retailers along with local art galleries and antique shops are located on King Street.

Do you like upscale? If not to shop, then just to look? A walk along King Street in Charleston takes you by unique and handmade jewelry shops, galleries of fantastic local artists and artisans, gift shops, shoes, and find clothiers. How about Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Benetton, Bebe, LaCoste, and on and on? There are also just cool little coffee and dessert shops to stop and take a break. See if you can find Gullah Gourmet! Don't know what Gullah is? You have to come to Charleston to find out (do NOT Google it, well, you can, but that defeats the discovery part for you). Oh, on King Street there are many stores that still "dress" their window displays. You'll find something that you like.
