Park Circle is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Charleston. Filled with new restaurants, old family homes, and great people — this is also one of the most up-and-coming suburbs too! The vibe of Park Circle is a little bit different from other Charleston neighborhoods, recently being named the Brooklyn of South Carolina by Thrillist. If hipsters love the good food, good people, and good vibes of Park Circle, then go ahead and call us hipsters.
Distance To Downtown: 20 Minutes
There are many older homes all around Park Circle. For what some homes lack in size, they make up for with charm and walk-ability to the main attractions of East Montague. East Montague would be known as Park Circle’s downtown, with a school, many restaurants, art studios, and more. Most of our real estate customers want homes as close to the main drag as possible, but there are houses available all over. Parks, playgrounds, bars, restaurants, and fun are all within walking distance.
There are also new communities cropping up in North Charleston, including the Mixson, Oak Terrace, the Factory at Garco Park, and Hunley Waters. These communities are perfect for people looking for new construction and all the perks of a planned community.
Riverfront Park (and tons of other parks) – Rockin’ the River concert series and events keep Park Circle residents entertained all year ’round.

Quarterman Park (Duck Pond) – Spend afternoons feeding the ducks and strolling through the majestic, old neighbor.
Recreation – North Charleston works hard to provide tons of options for it’s residents. The recreation center in the center of the circle has youth activities, a butterfly garden, baseball fields, picnic area, and more. Check out their main website to sign up for community classes (like yoga, ceramics, or even flag football).
Nightlife – The nightlife in Park Circle can be described as relaxed, casual, and fun. While there aren’t many traditional “bars,” the restaurants (see below), will meet your needs for some adult-oriented, after work and weekend fun.
Park Circle’s food is amazing and very unique. No matter what you’re in the mood for you can find it here. From hamburgers and pizza to Irish or Mexican, the delicious restaurants have you covered. Some of our favorites include:

The public schools in North Charleston are admittedly struggling. The local community and government has gotten behind the effort to improve them. The main schools in the neighborhood are the North Charleston High School, Academic Magnet High School, and Charleston Bilingual Academy.
