Valentine’s Day Drives

February 11th, 2021 by

Valentine’s Day, like everything else is being impacted by COVID. We asked our team where in Charleston they would go on a romantic Valentine’s Day drive . These are their recommendations for a #KiaDrive this Valentine’s Day. We found out we not only have romantics on the team, but a surprising number of history buffs.


  • To no one’s surprise, the Battery proved to be a favorite. Drive around and look at the antebellum homes and harbor or park and take a walk-through White Point Gardens. “Quintessential Charleston, quiet and quaint.”
  • Head over to the Old Village in Mount Pleasant for and take a walk-through picturesque Pickett Park to the Pitt Street Bridge. Its storied past includes both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars and was once the only way to get to Sullivan’ Island.
  • Fort Moultrie, a National Historical Park on Sullivan’s Island may not be your first idea of a romantic hotspot. Walking through the Fort and sitting on the wall and watching the ocean is a favorite pastime of one of our team members and his wife.
  • Driving through the beautiful oak lined road to Kiawah and Seabrook to take a walk on a quiet and uncrowded beach sounded just perfect. Another staff member said he and his wife are visiting Middleton Place for the first time and staying at the Inn at Middleton Place. They are looking forward to touring.
  • A surprise entry was downtown Monck’s Corner. The historic area includes a variety of shops and restaurants. Combined with a side trip to Mepkin Abbey, it sounds like a lovely day. Unfortunately, the Abbey remains closed at present due to COVID.

Whatever, you do this Valentine’s Day, we wish you a happy day filled with things and people you love.
