West Ashley is one of the six areas of the city proper of Charleston, South Carolina and is aptly named. It lies west of the Ashley River. Ancient moss-draped live oak trees line the original neighborhoods that were developed in the 1950s.
With 60,000+ residents, the area has seen explosive residential and commercial growth. Major retailers flock to the community for space that's not available on the historic downtown Charleston peninsula.
The Ashley River, marshes and creeks offer natural beauty. Historic tourist attractions include Magnolia Plantation, Middleton Plantation and Drayton Hall.
Darius Rucker, lead singer of the band Hootie and the Blowfish grew up here. And, Stephen Colbert host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS is a graduate of Porter-Gaud School, located in West Ashley.
