After your stroll on King Street come for a wander onto Broad Street and check out Gallery Row. So many great opportunities to view and purchase local art. Come to Hamlet Fine Art Gallery ( 7 Broad Street)and see the particularly wonderful pastels by Kellie Jacobs, the fine oils by Stephanie Shuler-Hamlet and Melinda Lewin, and the still life paintings of Pat Forsberg. Come a little further than King Street and open up your horizons.
Salon Couture gave me a great Man's cut and the food at Jim and Nicks was Awesome!
Come to Church Street in Burlington, VT...the most European of American cities. IT WORKS!
Go see Kellie Jacobs beautiful pastels at Coco Vivo on Broad Street they are to die for!!!!!!
Check out willow salons cuts for cancer. Great haircuts for donations to for cancer research.
Having been to Germany numerous times and experienced pedestrian shopping areas in cities both small and large, I think that it is time that Charleston seriously consider making King street for pedestrians permanently. This could be accomplished using valet parking for that area instead of the inept valet plan that is currently planned. Here is a suggestion that would guarantee that this would happen. Name it the 'Joseph P. Riley Pedestrian Plaza'
Who wants a good juggler to show up two Sundays a month ?
Want to help eliminate traffic and vehicular issues down town? Make King pedestrian only in this area. Foot traffic will increase dramatically offsetting any lost parking issues for the tenants in the area. Go to any city in Europe and notice the pedestrian only areas are packed...but then again europeans aren't circling a parking lot waiting for a space to open up so they don't have to walk.
Does anyone know if this starts this Sunday? It is not on the Charleston City info page either.
