This joyous tradition of closing King Street down to car traffic and making way for pedestrians and sidewalk seating began in 2010. Since then, thousands of locals and visitors alike come out to shop, eat, drink, and stroll down King Street on the second Sunday of every month. The pedestrian privileges last from 1-5pm on Second Sundays year round, and nearly every restaurant and shop takes advantage of the occasion with ample outdoor dining and Sunday specials. Come Christmastime, Second Sundays on King encourage participating stores to join in the festivities of the season with even more store specials and decor.

Christmas Shopping: "This newer of Charleston traditions is a popular one--plan to secure parking in a garage or paid lot close to King Street earlier rather than later. Strollers, groups, and pets welcome!"
Best for Christmas Shopping Because: Second Sundays on King brings the Charleston community together for an afternoon spent strolling, sampling, and shopping on one of the South's most beautiful streets.
