King Street Historic District

King Street is often compared to New York City’s 5th Avenue and boasts not only high end name brand boutiques, but also local purveyors and a fine selection of restaurants. This street is divided into three sections: Upper King (above Calhoun St) which is known for its lively nightlife, and new hotels and apartment buildings; Middle King St – from (Calhoun to Market St) with all your well known shops including Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Talbots etc…; and Lower King St (Market to Broad St) with more boutiques, antique and art galleries. There are countless condos to choose from, including newly renovated loft styles and historic buildings ranging from $350,000 to $1,750,000.  Parking comes at a premium here.

Hands down the best wine bar in town with 30 different wines by the glass, 130 bottles, and a glorious selection of cheese and charcuterie. You’ll feel like you’re in Paris as you watch the bustling city go by. At King and Queen.


Daniel, the owner, started this place with a dream of making bicycles accessible to everyone. He has since grown it to be the top bicycle rental and purchase place in town, and he makes extraordinary contributions to the community. At the corner of Cannon and King.


My favorite place for a magnificent meal. It blows my mind every single time. If you don’t want to eat, go for the nightly jazz trio, settle into white leather chairs and order a beautiful cocktail. Manager Mickey Bakst will make you feel welcome. Inside Charleston Place.
