Downtown, or the Historic King St. area, is Charleston’s primary shopping district and is full of high-end boutiques, art galleries, condos, and restaurants. Fun events such as the Christmas Parade and Second Sunday on King St. are held here. Visitors wander out of their hotel rooms to walk up and down the street and turn off for a glass of wine at Bin 152 or a quick lunch at Caviar and Bananas. If you’re looking for a condo in the middle of all the action, this is the place for you. Many condos are located above the shops, or off on side streets, such as the upscale condos at 21 George St. and 76 Society St.
