  • It is well worth the visit, but not some absolutely incredible experience. It is a row of lovely homes with great historical value. Definitely worth seeing.  more »
  • Worth taking a stroll down Rainbow Road to see a large group of colorful homes each right next to each other. A nice variety of colored homes many with lovely flower boxes filled with beautiful blooms...  more »
  • The houses are cute, the colors are fun, but I didn't think it was "all that".' If you are looking for a great photo, the street is so narrow you can't really get back far enough for an especially goo...  more »

  • Venerable Rainbow Row, the most-pictured landmark in Charleston, is a must-see. These 13 contiguous Georgian-architecture buildings were built 1748 to 1845 as a waterfront commercial district. They were designed to be stores on the lower level, with residences upstairs. The colorful paint was added by an owner in the '30's.
  • Beautiful houses. The history of them alone is awe inspiring. I was amazed at the narrowness of the fronts but how deep the lots were.
  • Cute row of colorful houses! I would say the only thing is there is a lot of car traffic and parked cars which obstruct the nice view. Great photo opps in front of the houses and flower planters.
  • Beautiful historic street along East Bay in Charleston. Definitely a photoop you don't want to miss. Just come early to beat traffic.
  • Although not necessarily a destination spot, Rainbow Row is a great street to walk through. The houses are great to look at. We parked down at the gardens and walked up East Bay Street to the Waterfront Park and Market. Great walk in a beautiful city!
