Charleston Moms: Children's Museum of the Lowcountry

Wed, Mar 15th 2017 9:50 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Things to Do

This quick taste of Winter just before Spring, has us looking for ways to get out of the house and stay inside! Indoor entertainment is not a typical request in the Lowcountry, but every now and then, its necessary! If you are a parent of young children, The Children's Museum of the Lowcountry is a great spot to spend an afternoon. Go alone, or meet friends for a playdate - either way, the littles are sure to be completely tuckered out by the end of your visit. 

The museum features an art room, music room, water room, giant pirate ship, huge castle to climb through, Publix pretend grocery store, and even a gated play area for small children. Once a child is walking, they can do almos...

Charleston Economy Unstoppable!

Sun, Mar 12th 2017 9:23 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Market Stats

Home Renovations: Mixing Old and New

Fri, Mar 10th 2017 9:15 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Home Improvements

Charleston is known for it's historic charm, and the homes throughout the area are no different. So many buyers come to us wanting something "updated with character." Many builders are adding finishing touches like shiplap and gas lanterns to give new homes that "old feel." Turn on an episode of Fixer Upper, and you will be amazed by the way Chip and Joanna Gaines marry old charm with modern updates. Today we were in a home with an old brick kitchen floor. When renovating that kitchen, using the floor as the focal point, and building new cabinets/backsplash/counters that compliment the brick would be gorgeous! 

Another easy update is painting wood paneled walls white. It will keep the ...

Spring has Sprung in the Lowcountry

Wed, Mar 8th 2017 3:15 pm by Cathy Hunnicutt Visit Charleston

The official start of Spring may be 2 weeks away, but its in the air throughout the Lowcountry. And no, we aren't just talking about the pollen. From the early buds on the crepe myrtles to the flourishing snapdragons, our mild Winter is quickly turning into a gorgeous Spring. So what's the best way to embrace this gift from Mother Nature? Get out and plant something! Now is a great time to add a Little Gem Magnolia to your landscape. Iconic to the South, the evergreen tree produces the most beautiful, fragrant flowers. They don't grow as large as a traditional Southern Magnolia, so they are a more manageable addition. Charleston is known for pristine gardens, and picture-perfect window ...

Explore Charleston: Parks of the Lowcountry

Tue, Mar 7th 2017 10:45 am by Cathy Hunnicutt Visit Charleston

One of the greatest blessings of living in the Lowcountry, is our ability to be outdoors most of the year. Whether its a warm 75 degree day in January, or a cool 75 degree day in July, the streets, parks and beaches are filled with happy residents and visitors soaking up that vitamin D and enjoying each other's company. 

One great way to take advantage of the outdoors is a visit to one of the many county parks. From North Charleston to Mount Pleasant, and Kiawah to Isle of Palms, there is a park right outside your door, no matter where you live.
