Hidden Lowcountry Gems – Part Three

Hidden Lowcountry Gems – Part Three

In Part One and Part Two of this blog on hidden gems, I made it clear these locations are not secrets, but rather places that even some long-time Charleston residents have yet to find and explore.  Here are two more delightful neighborhoods and another surprise hidden in plain sight.

Rockville

Maybe you’ve heard about the Rockville Regatta, maybe you have some vague recollection that Rockville is way out on Wadmalaw Island. But, if you haven’t visited, you are missing a delightful town seemingly floating along the Bohicket Creek. The Regatta is a great big party, but on any other day, Rockville is a sleepy resort village and a lovely spot for a picnic or day of fishing. Their designation as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places has preserved the historic homes and churches. Drive through the canopies of Live Oaks draped in Spanish Moss on the Maybank Highway from James Island to Johns Island and keep going across Wadmalaw until you run out of road.

Longborough

Do you want the benefits of newer construction, the charm of ancient oaks, views of the Ashley River, and you want it all downtown? Longborough has it all. You may not have driven by it because it is tucked away behind Wagener Terrace at the north end of the peninsula. This charming neighborhood was designed for a downtown vibe and is walking distance to Hampton Park, the Citadel and has some of the best new restaurants in town! I love the community waterfront park, walking trails, and dock.

Fast and French

How can a long-established restaurant on Broad Street be a hidden gem? Charlestonians have long enjoyed the Fast and French Gaulart & Maliclet communal tables and cozy atmosphere. You may not know however, that they recently changed their service model to a tip-free patronage. That’s right, no tipping and even the tax is included in the price. Your very French, Seafood Normandy listed for just $21 will cost you exactly $21 out the door. My favorite is the $5 traditional ham and brie on baguette from the express menu. You’d be hard pressed to find a better downtown lunch for the money! Grab one of the eight $5 sandwiches and enjoy it while taking the garden tour I described in the first part of this series. That’s totally free.
