Downtown Charleston

Downtown Charleston

Charleston, the official seat of the county that bears its name, is the oldest and second most populated city in South Carolina. Many of its proud 135,000 residents like to explain that it is located where “where the Cooper and Ashley Rivers come together to form the Atlantic Ocean.” Charleston is recognized throughout the world for its charm that directly results from preserved history, its natural beauty, its friendly and welcoming people, its awe-inspiring restaurants and more.

When many speak of Charleston, they are referencing its Downtown, otherwise known as The Peninsula. However, it officially includes areas that are outline on their own throughout the website: West Ashley, James Island, Johns Island and Daniel Island as well as the Cainhoy Peninsula. One of the true jewels of the Lowcountry, Charleston’s Downtown, is easily accessed from Mt. Pleasant via the Ravenel Bridge, from North Charleston and beyond via Interstate 26 and from West of the Ashley by Rte. 17. The Peninsula is literally just feet above sea level. The results are breathtaking buildings that appear to rise from the sea.

Charleston’s Downtown, 4 to 5 square miles in area, continues to attract a diverse array of visitors from throughout America and the world. Demand for housing, priced among the highest in the Lowcountry because of its limited availability, continues to increase for all the right reasons. Living in Downtown Charleston has remarkable appeal to people of all ages.
