The backdrop of most selfies taken in Charleston, this historic district offers quirky cobblestone alleys, grand harborfront homes, and a reasonably quiet place to live - except when the horse-drawn carriage sweeps down your street with camera-toting tourists! Not for the faint of heart - prices reach to $10 million - but can start around $500,000. Make your in-laws proud.
While walking distance to many restaurants, art galleries, and the King Street shopping district, there is no need to cross Broad Street for you favorite stinky cheese, specialty daily sandwich or bottle of wine with Goat.Sheep.Cow on Church Street. After you walk through the narrow alleys and streets South of Broad, stop by Burbage's Grocery on Savage and Broad for a slice of tomato pie or the handmade lemon pound cake.
