Named for a dog who stayed at this Victorian home-turned-restaurant after his owners moved away, Poogan’s Porch is a Charleston institution. They have a quality 1500-bottle wine cellar, as well as a good selection of wine by the glass, and their fried chicken is a crowd pleaser. Unlike a lot of restaurants in Charleston that just do Sunday brunch, Poogan’s does brunch on Saturday, too, and it’s really good. Afterward, walk a block south, and meander around the neighborhood, referred to as South of Broad, to see some of Charleston’s most stunning antebellum mansions.
