Wappoo Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Wappoo Heights community is a mixture of older, well-kept, modest traditional homes and bungalow-style houses, along with local businesses set among a rural industrial area located near the river and canal. The neighborhood is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city of Charleston, South Carolina, in a more remote area.
The neighborhood has large open areas, an abundance of trees, and streets shaded by huge leafy canopies. The neighborhood depicts an old-fashioned and quaintly charming part of town.
Wappoo Heights is bordered by Folly Road to the east that connects to the major roadways of Savannah Highway and St. Andrew’s Boulevard. The neighborhood is bordered by the river to the south.
Accessing State Highway 171, residents can easily cross the river where additional businesses are available, including the James Island Shopping Center, Cross Creek Shopping Center, a movie theater, several banks, and additional restaurants.
To the east of the community via the Savannah Highway is Roper Hospital, convenient for residents of Wappoo Heights. The Medical University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston are in the same area.
Near the College of Charleston are Marion Square, Cannon Park, and Colonial Lake, providing residents ample areas for outdoor recreation.
The Citadel Military College of South Carolina, Stoney Field, Harmon Field, Summerfield Field, and Hampton Park are located just north of Roper Hospital.
To the west of Wappoo Heights along Savannah Highway is St. Andrew’s Shopping Center. For additional major shopping venues, farther west along Savannah Highway is the Quadrangle Shopping Center, and all of these sites will accommodate the shopping needs of the area.
