cute road to walk down, just a short stop while you're in town; we went on the 1 rainy day of our trip but it was still nice. Reminds me of the painted ladies in San Fran.

Charming Rainbow Row with its multicolored houses is a lovely place to walk, shop in the boutiques and eat in busy restaurants. Every house has its own appeal, but do not expect a long walk.

More homes than we expected to see absolutely gorgeous worth walking by. Make sure you look at the houses on the other side of the street. Peek in the gates. You will be happy you did.

Colorful houses that are worth seeing but lots of cool houses on many other streets in Charleston. Walk around and explore as much as you can!

We unintentionally wandered across these colorful buildings while strolling around Charleston. Definitely worth a photo stop while you're in town.

Add this row of houses to your walking tour of downtown Charleston. There are a lot of colored buildings throughout the city but these give you a feel of the Caribbean. It is said that they are painted so drunken sailors could find their way back to where they were staying. Join the young instagrammers and take a photo. It’s one place I would agree is selfie worthy.

Amazing group of colorful historic homes on East Bay in Charleston. An amazing view as you walk on East Bay towards the Battery. A must see when visiting Charleston.

Again this might be a cultural difference in that we live in a “blue house” back in England and coloured, historic houses are maybe more commonplace than here.
Personally walking around the old colonial district highlighted the beautiful architecture more than this row of houses.
