Capital Street is a great place to eat, shop, & people watch. The old architecture is charming. Just stroll along and take in the laid-back atmosphere. There are many different restaurants from which to choose.

When in Charleston a visit to Capitol Street is a must. Shops and restaurants dot both sides of the street, with many of the restaurants offering outdoor seating.
