With only a few weeks left of outdoor walks that won’t leave you begging for water + a sweat towel, spring flowers are also about to wither away in the heat. Luckily, Charleston is still abloom in beautiful + natural spring coloration.

Whether you are taking a stroll down King Street or popping into Élevé for a rooftop libation, here is a list of can’t-miss hotspots for the spring scenery you need to sneak a peek at... before it’s gone.

🌸Kings Courtyard Inn | 📍198 King St.
A downtown courtyard garden that you can just stumble in on. Simply walk through the charming alleyways or even book a stay for a scenic getaway weekend.

🌸Gateway Walk | 📍The Unitarian Church at 4 Archdale St.
This graveyard is, shall we say, hauntingly beautiful. Wander off your everyday path to discover some of the dozens of walkways through luscious greens + blooming botanicals.

🌸Meeting St. Wisteria |📍54 Meeting St.
While this one might not be so “hidden,” it definitely can be missed. Located at 54 Meeting St., the Timothy Ford House is home to some of the most vibrant wisteria vines in the city – ones which look even better in person than they do on the ‘gram.

🌸South of Broad
Whether you’re visiting the picturesque Rainbow Row or cruising down to the Battery, these budding backyard gardens are just around the corner. Stop and peep through wrought iron gates to see some of the prettiest home gardens in the South.
