It is what it is - a beautiful street in a beautiful part of Charleston that has some beautifully-colored buildings. Not much more to say about it. It's great to observe if you are trying to kill time or just want a destination as you...More

If you want to see a beautiful color pattern and nice houses in Charleston do not forget to stop here. It is charming to look at the homes and the way they are organized by color. The pink one is a favorite.

They're historic restored houses that are painted different colors. If your walking by it's interesting reading the plaques.

Colorful row houses in beautiful and historic downtown Charleston. Worth a photo but not much else to see. All tours go by this area.

Nice historical houses but most photos are touched up or the houses need to touch-up as seemed a bit dull when we went...lighting conditions probably better at different times of year as well. Easy walk from other attractions though so worth sneaking a quick look

Walked around this area this past Sunday......which was a beautiful sunny day. Nice part of Charleston with shops, incredible homes, right on the water. Colors seemed a bit muted compared to years past. Might need repainting :)

While on a tour we went down the street of Rainbow Row, a few houses painted colorful colors. Homes are beautiful all around this area. Never did find out why they were painted the colors.

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!
