King Street in downtown Charleston is normally full of vehicle traffic - but not on the second Sunday of the month, from 1-5pm, for Second Sundays on King. Stroll along half a mile of car-free road, hear live music from musicians along the route, and discover shops and restaurants - which occupy the street for the afternoon.
