Downtown Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Downtown Charleston, South Carolina is a historic neighborhood, blending Charleston’s rich history and its beauty with modern charm and style. Downtown Charleston’s boundaries start at Calhoun Street to follow Concord Street along the waterway. At Broad Street, a short trip over to King Street and up to Beaufain includes the French Quarter within the Downtown boundaries. Following Beaufain to Saint Philip Street closes these boundaries, again at Cahoun Street.
A bountiful array of things to do and to see in Downtown Charleston includes a trip to the corner of Meeting Street and Market Street. Here, the historic City Market makes its home. Spanning an area of several city blocks, the land for this market was originally acquired from Charles Cotesworth Pinckney. He stipulated that the land must be used for this market. So it is, the buildings comprising City Market were built in the early 1800s and still serve their original purpose yet today. The Daughters of the Confederacy Museum is here, too, located in Market Hall.
Just a few blocks away, culinary delights take the stage with Charleston Culinary Tours. These 2 ½ hour walking tours give a taste of the local cuisine and of its history. Tips, tricks and an insiders look offer a unique perspective.
The French Quarter is an area of elegance, luxury, and romance, abundant with arts and culture. In this area of Downtown Charleston, the Charleston Waterfront Park is also a popular place to relax and enjoy the waterfront.
A number of the homes in Downtown Charleston are of historic and family value, passed down from generation to generation for over 200 years. Modern developments have often reinvented this history, transforming some of the historic and other buildings into apartments and condos.
