Travel :: Charleston's Rainbow Row


Our first afternoon in Charleston we checked into our hotel then headed out to explore.  After a fifteen minute walk we came upon the famed Rainbow Row, which was even more charming in person!  The colorful homes represent the largest cluster of Georgian Row houses in the United States.  After the Civil War the area was left in neglect, and it wasn't until the 1940's that the homes were purchased by the Charleston Preservation Society, repainted their vibrant hues, and restored to their former glory.
