King Street was recently featured in U.S. News’ Travel Section as one of America’s best shopping streets:
“While many consider Atlanta to be the shopping destination of the South, we find Charlestonto be much more appealing. In our opinion, Buckhead’s mega-malls can’t compete with the charms of King Street. This historic avenue pulses with pedestrians in search of the perfect outfit or gift. Beautiful buildings house big-name brands like Apple and Banana Republic; however, it’s the number of family-owned boutiques and male clothiers that really distinguishes King Street. Gentlemen should head to Bob Ellis for shoes and M. Dumas & Sons for apparel, as both are third-generation family-operated Charleston landmarks. Although King Street bustles with pastel-clad patrons particularly in the spring, you’ll find Southern hospitality persists year-round.”
