winter walk to Pitt St.

A rainy day in Charleston is still beautiful, especially to children who love umbrellas and wet walks.
At just under a mile, this is a nice little walk with some points of interest along the way. Start your walk by parking in the Old Village at Edwards park field, 400 Pitt St. Mt. Pleasant, SC. There are plenty of public spaces to park here, benches to sit, and a big field to run in with children and dogs.


A good landmark is this little brick cottage with the bright red door... ( on Bank St.)


March up the hill past the Confederate Cemetery on Carr St. You will walk past the G. M. Darby building ( stop in for a catalog of activities and camps for children). Turn left onto King St. and walk to Pitt St. Turn right on Pitt St. and wander up to...


the warm and cosy Village Bakery. Head inside for a hot chocolate and then carry on to ooh and ahh at the lovely window displays in Out of Hand, a Pitt St. must see.


Years ago, the Christmas windows in New York City sucked me into Bendel's to purchase the only thing I could afford... a hatbox! The ladies at Out Of Hand have done a beautiful job of creating a mini 5th Avenue. Take a peek inside for a few affordable treasures.
 
Retrace your steps to the parking lot and you have completed almost a mile!
