This is a "have to visit" location in historic downtown Charleston. Love the old buildings. All within close walking distance of all the great historical buildings.

while touring and walking the area, we walked down rainbow row. It was a neat little walk with cool buildings! The kids enjoyed seeing different buildings.

It’s not just a row of old homes but a piece of Charleston lore. We walk this area every time we come to Charleston. It’s a never miss location.

Take a very picturesque stroll down this wonderful street in Charleston. The homes are colorful, old and a photo op in downtown. Keep walking to find shops and restaurants.

Rainbow Row wasn't all that interesting to me but the history and homes in the surrounding neighborhood are well worth the visit.

The Painted Ladies they aint! The colors weren't bright- much more muted in person and nothing spectacular.

Anyone can walk past these pastel buildings, but you need a great guide to provide their history and present use. We recommend Low Country Walking Tours and their Alleys and Lanes tour. The back story is the reason to go.

It's all pedestrian-friendly since it's an open neighborhood street. You can walk along the sidewalk and I'm sure you can bring your pup!
