We're often tasked with finding clients neighborhoods that mark off certain items on their livability checklist. Walkable, bikeable, easy access to good food, dog friendly, and park nearby are normally at the top of people's list. Add to that a budget and you've got yourself a handful of areas around town that fit the bill.
Park Circle, located in North Charleston is a simple answer to all the above, also factoring in affordability. For a little history, check out NorthCharleston.org. Below, we touch on the current happenings in the area.
New builds are happening left and right in Oak Terrace Preserve, Mixson (complete with a hip and kid-friendly pool) and Hunley Waters, but there's also the traditional area off of the circle.

Emily and her husband Trevor at Brewvival (below)
As you may remember, Angela moved to this area earlier in the year and has recently sold Emily (get it?) on moving her family there next month, as well. So this list will serve as a great resource when our husbands ask us, "Honey, what's for dinner?". Especially since Angela has another little one due early next year. We don't have much time for cooking, nor do we excel at the art of food.
What's your favorite spot in Park Circle? Do you have a memory from this area if you grew up in the Lowcountry? We'd love to hear more about the history.
