Whether it is cobblestone streets and church steeples, the Battery, Rainbow Row or King St., you’re likely familiar with Charleston. The over 300-year-old destination is full of old-school Southern charm, white tablecloth eateries, seersucker-clad locals, and $20 dollar cocktails.
It’s a very specific vibe, but if you’re in search of something a little more casual, imagine experiencing a far less highfalutin version of the Lowcountry. A little more grit than grace. A little more hey y’all than “bless your heart.” If you’re down for a laid-back Lowcountry experience, North Chuck is your place.
At 51 years young, this new-school neck of the woods has something for everyone. From hip hangs like Holy City Brewing to practically famous local eats like the Tattooed Mouse (home of the best dang Duck Club in the world), beloved happenings like the Charleston Beer Fest or the epic Highwater Festival, and plenty of activities where you can find yourself or get a little lost, North Chuck is a come-as-you-are good time any time of year.
Here you’ll still find those picturesque views that have enchanted visitors the world over—but there’s no pressure to throw on seersucker to enjoy them. At Riverfront Park, you can stroll or skip around to your heart’s content while immersing yourself in the history and beauty of the old Charleston Naval Base. Throw on your dancing shoes for live local music nights like Jazz in the Park or even kick off your shoes for a little waterfront yoga. All the vibes are welcome at Riverfront Park—and the stunning views are sure to take your Instagram grid to the next level.
Make your way to Park Circle, North Chuck’s most happening hangout for all things awesome. Eclectic shops like the Itinerate Literate Bookstore ensure a truly novel experience while DIG in the Park boasts a bevy of beers along with a dish called The Hangover Cure sure to quell any of the previous long night’s questionable decisions. Whether you’re looking to shop, sip, or treat yourself to a little something, Park Circle is the Lowcountry’s best kept secret.
The only thing stiff on this side of the bridge is our cocktails. Trade the small talk handshaking for a welcoming “What’s Up Y’all?” (and maybe even a bear hug). When there’s fun to be had, you’re sure to find it in North Chuck. To plan your visit to the laidback Lowcountry, click here today.
