Tomato and mozzarella appetizer from the Peninsula Grill’s restaurant week menu. Everything that we had here was delicious- their coconut cake is amazing and their lobster and corn chowder was pretty yummy, too!

Warm cookies for me and sorbet for Joe!
Me, Joe, and his parents.

The Powder Magazine, the oldest public building in South Carolina, established in 1713.
Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.
Old, grand Charleston homes from our carriage tour.
How gorgeous is this front door?
This iron work reminded me a bit of New Orleans- so intricate!
2 Meeting Street: now it is a bed and breakfast but it was originally built as a wedding gift from father (George Williams, who built the Calhoun Mansion) to daughter (Martha Williams) in 1890.
Chalmers Street is the longest remaining cobblestone street in Charleston. The stones used here are actually from British ships.
The Calhoun Mansion: George Walton Williams had this house built in 1876.

Places to Eat (my favorites & some we wanted to get to but didn’t have time):
39 Rue de Jean
Dixie Supply Bakery and Cafe (we went for breakfast)
Kaminsky’s (for dessert, wine, and dessert-like drinks)
Prohibition (for drinks and appetizers)
Peninsula Grill (for a nice dinner)
Tattooed Moose (on the list for next time)
Poogan’s Porch (on the list for next time- we tried to have lunch here one day but it was closed)

Places to See:
The Old City Market
Rainbow Row
The Battery
Aiken-Rhett House
The Old Slave Mart
Carriage tour (I didn’t want to do this at first but was so glad that I did! It’s so hard to see all of the city on foot and it’s so much better when you have someone telling you the history as you’re viewing the sites!)
Drayton Hall (we didn’t make it here but it’s on my list for next time!)

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you enjoyed it!
