Featured Neighborhood: Park Circle

What used to be an up-and-coming North Charleston neighborhood is now a well established residential and commercial hub for young professionals. Park Circle was designed in the 1910s, laid out as a “garden style” community meant to contain residential, commercial, and agricultural spaces. At the center of the round neighborhood is Park Circle itself—a lush greenspace with picnic tables, a playground, and ball fields. Radiating out are quiet streets lined with mid-century bungalows and a lively food-and-bev scene.

WHO LIVES HERE: Thanks to its affordability and walkability to nightlife, within the last 10 years the neighborhood has become a hotspot for young professionals, young families, and other first-time home buyers looking to snag a historic Lowcountry property. Meanwhile, there are homeowners who have lived in the area for decades. Flipped homes are common on the market here, as are charming bungalows needing a little TLC.

WHERE TO EAT & DRINK: Like we’ve said, Park Circle boasts plenty of tasty eateries and bars—so much so that residents from Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and more will make the 15-ish minute drive to indulge here. EVO Pizzeria is perhaps the most popular restaurant in the hood, in good company with The CODfather Proper Fish & Chips, which serves up just what its name hints; Basil—featuring the delicious Thai fare we’ve come to love elsewhere in the Lowcountry; and Azul Mexicano. Beer fans will want to post up at Commonhouse Aleworks for the day, while wine lovers can get their fill at Stems & Skins. For a rowdy time, head to Madra Rua Irish Pub. For a jolt, try Orange Spot Coffee.

WHAT TO DO: On any day, Park Circle offers acres and acres of green space to make merry within—including a disc golf course, ball fields, and tables. Quarterman Park is another spacious park rife with walking paths and water views, located just a few blocks southeast of Park Circle. Every Thursday from May 9 through October 31, the North Charleston Farmers Market sets up shop in Park Circle, and throughout the year other markets and festivals pop up within the park, too. The food-and-bev district—located on East Montague—is most certainly worth a visit, and music lovers will love the proximity to Riverfront Park, an outdoor venue tucked on the banks of the Cooper River that’s just an eight minute drive from Park Circle.
