Now that the longest January on record has finally come to a close (please tell me I’m not the only one who felt like January was 300 days long?), it’s time to usher in some hopefully warmer weather and a new round up of restaurants in Charleston.

This round-up’s theme is love, as Hallmark’s favorite holiday is just around the corner, and lovebirds new and old are looking to celebrate in the Holy City.
These are my top suggestions for romantic restaurants that’ll help set the mood, whether it’s your 1st or 40th date.

This week we visit 114 Broad Street, another Charleston house in the grand tradition, constructed of brick over a raised basement with a cascading staircase from each side of the portico. The construction was begun by Ralph Izard before 1800 but not completed until Colonel Thomas Pinckney purchased it in 1829. He and his wife, Eliza, the daughter of Ralph Izard, completed the house, hiring the Horlbeck brothers, builders of the Old Exchange Building, to finish construction. If you visit the Gibbes Museum of Art, make sure to see the miniatures in its collection of Thomas and Eliza Pinckney; they are an extremely attractive couple.

Books are in boxes. Plates are wrapped. U-Haul reserved. It’s official - you are moving to Charleston, SC.

Welcome! Depending on who you ask, Charleston has between 30 to 70 people arriving every day to be a part of this lovely Lowcountry life. Whether you’re moving for the dream job or simply swooned over the Holy City, you are in good company.

As with any transition, finding your feet can feel as intimidating as it is exhilarating. As New York transplants ourselves, my husband, Trinity Wheeler, and I found the best way to meet new people and connect with the Charleston community was through fitness.

This week we visit the William Harvey House at 110 Broad Street. 110 Broad Street is one of our earlier structures, dating from 1728, and has been altered and renovated several times. Today this structure remains a single-family residence.

In addition to this early pre-Revolutionary house having escaped the 5 great fires of Charleston, the owners and inhabitants of 110 Broad are a fascinating part of the history of this city.

Charleston typically has great, mild weather, but there is always the possibility of rain to spoil outdoor plans, so it’s a good idea to be familiar with some indoor alternatives that everyone will enjoy that won’t strain the pocketbook.

The Charleston Museum - A good value with plenty of parking nearby and filled with displays that appeal to a variety of interests. The entrance to spacious museum immediately catches youthful eyes with ...

68 Broad Street is Charleston's oldest legacy house, completed by 1800. This brick single house replaced an earlier wooden residence that burned in the great fire of 1796. The original property was more extensive than it appears now, as it included the Washington Park property until that property was condemned and landscaped as the park.

Broad Street has some wonderful structures and lots of stories. This week we visit 60-64 Broad Street or the Confederate Home, originally known as the Home for the Mothers, Widows, and Daughters of Confederate Soldiers.

During its strange and storied history, this property has been a residence which hosted a United States President, served as a hotel, a Federal courthouse, a college, apartment building and wedding destination.
