Historic Charleston is a city of many faces, and there is no place, and no lifestyle, that rivals it. South of Broad is an area of historic homes where old Charleston families live alongside transplanted professionals. Tourists wander the ancient narrow streets and alleys. The sound of hooves on pavement and cobblestone marks the passing of another horse drawn carriage tour. Movie crews periodically change the street signs and put up old gas lamps. Along the Battery, visitors drop their quarters into mounted binoculars so they can view Ft. Sumter, the place where “The War Between the States” began.
Best of Historic Charleston Video SeriesUp King Street and along Calhoun, the spirit changes and so do the faces. Here is the College of Charleston, surrounded by neighborhoods of still old homes, but smaller and filled with younger professionals. Towards the Ashley River is the Medical University of South Carolina and the Roper Hospital complex. Along the banks of the river are new hotels, a renovated old warehouse filled with new businesses, and marinas.
Between the recreational development along the Ashley River and the South Carolina Ports Authority terminals on the Cooper lies a city where residents and business people live and work side-by-side. Walking along East Bay Street or Meeting Street, it is not always clear which of the old homes are residences, which are businesses and which are historic sites.
Finally, along King and Market Streets, along East Bay, Church and Broad, one finds hundreds of storefronts, from Gucci and Louis Vuitton to consignment jewelry shops and sidewalk sweetgrass basket weavers. The Port of Charleston is the fourth largest container port in the United States. Along its docks are parking lots packed with brand new BMWs on their way around the world. Mountains of containers waiting to be hauled to Singapore and Liverpool line the Cooper River waterfront.
This city is thriving with a perfect blend of modern day commerce and historical significance. Charleston is — well, Charleston. One of the world’s great cities, she preserves the best of the old and seems to constantly remake herself. Always relevant, yet obliging, we think she’s is grander than ever. You will too.
