Living in the capital city of West Virginia, Charleston apartments are among the beautiful tree lined streets of downtown, the access to excellent parks and recreation, and great shopping venues and restaurants. A variety of notable businesses exist in this city of over 50,000 people, including Charleston Stamping and Manufacturing that supplies body and structural stampings for autos and trucks, MATRIC Research And Innovation Center and is home to Shoney's chain of restaurants across America.
Charleston apartment dwellers looking to decorate a new apartment or redecorate an older place can find lots of goodies at the Charleston Town Center with three stories of delightful shops and eateries in a gorgeous setting. Additional downtown stores and service businesses can be found nearby on Capitol Street and Hale Street.
The visual and performance arts are notably important to residents, as apparent by the numerous galleries, the Clay Center Maier Foundation Performance Hall and Walker Theater exhibiting all types of art as well as a home to the 70 year old West Virginia Symphony Orchestra. Special events throughout the year, including the 10 day arts FestivALL Charleston in late June, and several arts and crafts festivals offer plenty of excuses to get out and meet the community.
When you're looking to get outdoors from your Charleston apartments, make sure you check out the adventures along the Kanawha River such as rafting, canoeing, or just hiking and camping, as well as many parks for picnicking and recreation.
Whether you like to play indoors or outdoors, Charleston is a great place to live!
