A Romantic Stroll Down Chalmers Street
Take a romantic stroll down Chalmers Street, a cobblestone street that offers a glimpse into the past when horse-drawn wagons traveled across the bumpy road. Along the way, you will come across many beautiful shops, museums, restaurants or beaches in the area. Chalmers Street is named after physician and meteorologist Dr. Lionel Chalmers, whose home and apothecary were located at the corner of Chalmers and State streets.
Dine Your Darling in Charleston
After your walk, a romantic candlelit dinner might be just the ticket, and Charleston has no shortage of restaurants to choose from for a poetic meal. If you’re looking for a top-rated restaurant with an atmosphere to set the mood, look no further than Circa 1886. Enjoy a bottle of wine from the list of more than 325. The cuisine is just as dazzling, with a focus on high-quality, local ingredients and southern flavors. Complementing the charming meals is a charming atmosphere with warm hues, wood paneling, candlelit tables and a plush interior – the perfect combination for a fine dining experience. circa1886.com
