Tours - which to take, inexpensive dinner?

My wife and I will be in Charleston on 2/12-2/14, (2 nights, 3 days).

We are staying at the Harborview Inn. I am just overwhelmed with all the info on tours etc. Should we take a Carriage Tour and a Walking tour or just one? Do they overlap? We have no problem walking. We like history, old homes, etc. Also, what about the Cullinary tours? Are there more than one? Which carriage tour, walking tour and culinary tours do your recommend?

We do have a dinner reservation at Peninsula Grill for one night, any dinner recommendations not so expensive for the second?

Thanks, Milton

If you have no problem walking, and because you're coming in when the weather is chilly, I'd say do a walking tour over a carriage tour.

As for a more moderately priced dinner, I'd go for a burger at the sidebar at Husk, or grab a lobster roll at Pearlz. That, or...if you're feeling very local and southern, try the famous Dave's Carry-Out for some fried seafood (42 Morris). Fast and French on Broad is a different option, as well.

Check w/Ed Grimball for an excellent walking tour.

Another option for moderately priced dinner would be Jestines, good pecan chicken and Coca Cola cake.

I vote for a carriage ride. I have been on several carriage rides and always enjoy it. If you don't want a formal walking tour, you could also pick up a book for a self guided walking tour.
