Considered the cultural capital of the South, downtown Charleston
contains the French Quarter
on the east, sporting cobblestone streets and gaslight lamps, and Market Street on the west, where the famous Charleston City Market operates. Because the downtown area sits between the Ashley River and the Cooper River, residents can walk from their apartments to Waterfront Park, a few blocks south, for a little rest and relaxation or wander along the narrow streets, where historic homes
and buildings proudly sit.
Locals enjoy spending time at the Charleston Crab House for both the fresh seafood and the homey atmosphere. They can people-watch on the outside terrace while enjoying good food and cold drinks.
