We actually ran in to a resident who gave us the best tour! Look for the "Spider-Man" house- had to use the door from the adjoining house. They are all so pretty and well kept.

What an amazing place. It has romance, southern charm, architecture, and beauty. It was fun to walk rainbow row and take in the uniqueness of each home. Well worth the stop to see a piece of Charleston culture.

It's all pedestrian-friendly since it's an open neighborhood street. You can walk along the sidewalk and I'm sure you can bring your pup!
