The Downtown Charleston Neighborhoods: Cannonborough – Elliotborough
Downtown Charleston SC Real Estate captures everything this picturesque waterfront city has to offer: the downtown southern restaurants, charming hotels, cruise ships, Victorian-style homes, arts and crafts homes, historic bungalows, nearby beaches, markets, and shops; not to mention the Charleston Waterfront Park and the Charleston South Carolina Aquarium.
Parking is often a challenge in downtown Charleston, but your best bet is to find a parking garage off King or Meeting Street and spend some time walking around the bustling area. Staying in one of the many downtown Charleston hotels or bed and breakfasts is a romantic experience to be had by all and they are located close to all of Charleston's restaurants and attractions.
If you walk around long enough, you're sure to find some of your favorite cuisine. With Charleston’s location on the water, there are seafood restaurants serving up the daily catch on nearly every block. If seafood isn’t your fare, there are many Italian and American restaurants to choose from in downtown Charleston.
The Charleston Market is downtown's hub on the weekends. Vendors set up tables along the open-air market and sell a variety of clothes, apparel, and art. The market's location is just a couple blocks from the ocean and Charleston Waterfront Park.
