Rainbow Row is the name for a series of thirteen colorful historic houses in Charleston, South Carolina. It represents the longest cluster of Georgian row houses in the United States. The houses are located north of Tradd St. and south of Elliott St. on East Bay Street, that is, 79 to 107 East Bay Street. The name Rainbow Row was coined after the pastel colors they were painted as they were restored in the 1930s and 1940s. It is a popular tourist attraction and is one of the most photographed parts of Charleston.Plan to see Rainbow Row and other attractions that appeal to you using our Charleston tour planner.

Rainbow Row on East Bay Street is a cool part of Charleston that is nice to check out when you are walking or driving. The colors are cool and a nice variety and it is something that adds a little flavor to the street. Little things like Rainbow Row are what makes Charleston a great place to be and visit. This is a nice and quick thing to see and show people. My favorite color is the green one.
This is a short section of town with 5-6 houses that are painted different colors. It's a photo opportunity that is popular with some tourists. The houses are indeed different colors, and this is noteworthy. If you're wondering where the best place to stand while photographing these houses, simply look for the largest group of millennials in the immediate area. May go again.
