Walking Through Charleston’s Alleys 1 Mar 2017, 3:02 am

Charleston is by all accounts a walking city. You can best enjoy the city’s architectural details and warm breezes with a stroll throughout the Historic District. We hold firmly to the opinion that a walk is not complete unless you’ve meandered through one of our many beautiful and historic alleys. Charleston’s alleys have been around as long as the city itself and are one of the city’s best-kept secrets. A few of our favorites are Philadelphia Alley, Stoll’s Alley, and Fulton Lane. Each is romantic and historic in its own way, and all deserve a visit.



Philadelphia Alley

This shaded one block path sits between Church Street and State Street. Originally, it was named “Cow Alley,” most likely due to the livestock that occupied the space. It was later changed to “Philadelphia” to honor the help given by Philadelphia after the devastating fire of 1810. Locals have been known to refer to it as “Dueler’s Alley,” as it was seen as the ideal place for a duel in the 1800’s. This was due to its high walls and limited access at both ends. Ghost tours commonly stop here and share stories of some of the more gory duels. If you are in town for the picture perfect sights or to soak up the rich history of the city, Philadelphia Alley is a must see.

Stoll’s Alley

Stoll’s Alley is only six feet in width at its eastern end, so visitors tend to pass by this path without a second glance. If you are observant enough, you won’t be disappointed by this charming shaded alley with greenery and wrought iron gates. Four of the gates were crafted by Philip Simmons who is widely recognized as the most important Charleston ironworker of the 20th Century. Pieces of his craft are kept in museums all over the United States, and it is truly a treasure to be able to walk through Charleston’s alleys and experience his work in its original home. This alley is a relaxing break from the busyness of Church Street and East Bay Street where its entrances sit.

Fulton Lane

Our own aptly named, Fulton Lane Inn sits next to a quaint, quiet alley. This path is nestled right in the heart of the city, where its just close enough to the hustle and bustle of upper King Street, but tucked away so guests enjoy relaxing and quiet nights. From here you can walk to the Charleston Market, Waterfront Park, or many famed downtown restaurants. We invite you to come enjoy all of Charleston’s Alleys and our Fulton Lane Inn this spring.

During your stay at the Fulton Lane Inn, you can enjoy our Discover Charleston Package. With this package you’ll enjoy: a carriage ride through downtown’s historic district, your choice of a plantation and garden tour at Middleton Place, Drayton Hall or Fort Sumter, and a tour of one of Charleston’s beautiful historic homes, the Heyward-Washington or Joseph Manigault House. This package is available year-round, but rates vary depending on season. Call 800-720-2688 to book this package.

The is service has been known to draw crowds of over 500 tourists and residents to celebrate Easter in Charleston.

Celebrate with Brunch – Enjoy a taste of Charleston’s unique cuisine on Easter morning at King Street’s Kitchen 208.

Charleston Joggling Boards 13 Feb 2017, 2:39 pm

Charleston joggling boards are a lowcountry tradition. According to the legend, if you had a joggling board on your front porch you would never have an unwed daughter. Young couples would sit on the bench and “joggle.” A joggle is created from the rockers cut into the stands and the large span between each rocker. The male would sit on one side of the bench, while the female sat on the other. Each would “joggle” guiding themselves to the middle. Once reaching the center, they would engage in an intimate moment or simply enjoy easy conversation.

charleston joggling boards

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and love blooming this spring, we’re encouraging our guests to post photos of charleston joggling boards throughout the city. The details are simple:

  • Follow @KingsCourtyardInn on instagram, facebook, or twitter
  • Share your Joggling Board moments with loved ones or friends using #KCIJogglingBoard


Every photo that is entered will be in the running to win a Charleston-themed gift box! Charleston joggling boards are not just for lovebirds, so, of course, we’re interested in seeing pics of friends, family, or significant others.

At the Kings Courtyard Inn, we have charleston joggling boards in our Tabby Courtyard and in the entrance walkway leading to the Pineapple Courtyard. Guests are encouraged to post photos of the joggling boards at the Kings Courtyard Inn or other joggling boards around Charleston using #KCIjogglingboard. Some of our favorite places to spot a joggling board when exploring historic sites around town are the Nathaniel Russel House, the Edmonston-Alston House, and Cougar Mall at the College of Charleston. If you’re one of the many diners waiting on a table at Husk Restaurant and Poogans Porch Restaurant, you can entertain your party with a little joggle while you wait.

This contest will go on until May 31, 2017. The winner with the best joggling board photo will win the prize! We look forward to watching our guests joggle through spring!

Winter in Charleston 8 Feb 2017, 1:40 pm

Winter in Charleston will surprise you with how much there is to see, eat, and do. The average temperatures range from high 50’s to high 60’s, and the local culture doesn’t skip a beat. From visiting historic plantations and eating the local seasonal catch to soaking in the sun and enjoying the scenic sea breeze, the city doesn’t slow down when the temperatures drop a few degrees. With what seems like perfect weather, it’s hard to believe winter in Charleston is a slow season.

Winter In Charleston

Every winter, camellias across Charleston open up with the most beautiful brightly-colored blossoms. Because Charleston has so many established gardens, these flowers are all over the city. You can catch a glimpse of many different varieties of camellias with a quick walk through the Historic District.  One of the best places in the city to see these gorgeous flowers is Magnolia Plantation. This centuries-old plantation is home to America’s oldest romantic garden. The most noteworthy aspect of the garden is that there are over 20,000 camellias, which is especially relevant when attending a free camellia walk at the plantation.

If you’re hoping to experience unique, regional cuisine, look for oysters or shrimp and grits. Oyster roasts have been a part of Southern culture since the early 19th century. When visiting in the winter, eating a steamed oyster is something you absolutely must cross off your Charleston bucket list. While there are countless oyster roast events around town, you can order them by the bucket at many restaurants. Bowen’s Island Restaurant is a fun experience and also home to one of the best places to watch a sunset. Shrimp and Grits make the cut on most restaurant menu throughout the city. And of course, this delicious dish will be in high demand come Sunday brunch. One our favorite places to grab a bowl of shrimp and grits is on the sunny patio at Kitchen 208.

No trip to Charleston is complete without some time spent near the water. The Cooper River Bridge is the longest stay cable bridge in North America. Because the bridge spans from downtown to Mt. Pleasant, this is arguably the best view of the Charleston peninsula. If it’s a warm enough day, you can get your heart rate going with a walk over the three-mile long bridge. If you’re looking for something a little more serene, head to Folly Beach or Sullivan’s Island for a long beach walk. And in the winter, the beach will be sunny, breezy, and relatively quiet.

With almost perfect weather and what seems like countless things to see do and eat,  and While enjoying Winter in Charleston, you will rest easy knowing that you have the perfect hotel to serve as a home base. The Fulton Lane Inn offers daily continental breakfast, wine and cheese, and luxury rooms to make your trip even better. Take advantage of the favorable rates at this Charming Inn starting at just $199 per night. Call 843-720-2688 or click here for more information.

2017 Spring Menu at Circa 1886 2 Feb 2017, 1:29 pm

Chef Marc Collins recently debuted a new late winter and early spring menu at Circa 1886 celebrating classic Southern flavors, local heirloom ingredients, and the hint of warmer weather. The Blue Crab Salad is an early standout. Lump crab meat is paired with Heart of Palm, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Avocado Gelato, English Cucumber, Radish, Thai Pepper, Frisee, and Passion Fruit Aioli adding a flavorful punch to the dish, while not overpowering the delicious sweet crab meat.

Close followers of Chef Collins’ cuisine should keep their eye out for the Pork Duet with Ginger Braised Pork Belly, Purple Sweet Potatoes, Chipotle Honey Mustard Brushed Tenderloin, Grilled Scallion Paint, Baby Turnips, and Jus Lié. Chef Collins has said that this is a dish he has especially enjoyed creating. The Foie Gras appetizer, paired with Cherry Crème Brûlée, Pineapple Sambal, and a Toasted Vanilla Corn Bread Crumble is as decadent as it gets. Favorite seasonal ingredients such as radishes, mushrooms, parsnips, and rabbit are seen throughout the menu.

Pastry Chef Scott Lovorn is tempting taste buds with his over-the-top desserts such as the Elvis Fluffernutter with Peanut Butter Mousse, Candied Bacon, and Toasted Fluff, or the Chocolate “Temperatures & Textures” dish which features more varieties of chocolate than one can count. As always, if you can’t decide what to order, the chef’s five-course tasting menu is the perfect opportunity to let Chef Marc Collins take the reins. Read below for the full menu:

The Perfect Holiday Wine 19 Dec 2016, 2:01 pm

Holidays call for celebrations of all sizes. When we asked Circa 1886’s sommelier, John Martindale, for suggestions on the perfect holiday wine, he gave us a list that is sure to please every palate this holiday season. Whether you are looking for a bottle to enjoy with your family, need a gift for the hostess that squeezed you into your favorite restaurant throughout the year, or want a wine with just enough sparkle on New Year’s Eve, John’s list covers every occasion.


Wines for Everyone at the Table

Gamay from Beaujolais ($) – this is a light, bright, and earthy red is comparable to a juicy Pinot Noir. Look for the Crus of Brouilly and Morgon.

Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley ($$) – the hotter climate in Russian River lends Pinot Noir a bit of extra weight and depth. John’s favorite producers are Orogeny, Fritz and Gary Farrell.

Napa Chardonnays ($$$) – producers such as Jarvis and Edge Hill by Rudd create a high-class Chardonnay with the might and acidity to stand up to big flavors at the table.

Celebratory Bubbles

Etoile Brut – The Brut is known for an attractive bouquet of ginger and brown spice. Appealing baked apple, honey and cinnamon flavors meld seamlessly with nutty caramel flavors gained from extended sur lie aging. The creamy and seamless structure combined with balanced acidity carries these flavors through the lingering finish.

Etoile Rosé – The Rosé is elegant and restrained with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry, and nutmeg. These aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness.

Ruinart Blanc de Blanc – on the lighter, brighter side try Ruinart Blanc de Blanc. The nose is powerfully reminiscent of fresh fruits with dominant notes of citrus and exotic fruits, followed by a touch of jasmine, white peaches, and pink peppercorns. John says, “this wine, made with 100% Chardonnay, is the perfect aperitif.”

Krug Grand Cuveé – This is the perfect wine to impress the collector in your life. This barrel fermented Champagne has enough depth and length to wow. As you taste it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey.

A Sweet Finish

For dessert, John suggests a classy, off-dry Madeira. The touch of sweetness is enough to entice, but not overwhelm the palate while complementing holiday pies.

Rare Wine Company’s Charleston Sercial – a wine that has been served throughout meals in America for nearly 300 years. To emphasize America’s deep historical connection to Madeira, each wine in the series is named for a U.S. city where Madeira was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. Thus, Charleston Sercial celebrates the South’s love of drier Madeiras.


Stop by and let us fill your glass with your favorite wine, or let John introduce you to a new varietal. Cheers to a wonderful holiday season!
