A stately mansion on the hill overlooking Charleston has long been the most visible landmark of the South Hills neighborhood. The mansion, home of a former governor, was known to generations of children as the Sunrise Museum. Today, it is the cornerstone of the historic and hip neighborhood that is home to trendy boutiques and an amazing urban trail.
The best view of the city is accessed by a quick hike along the Sunrise Carriage Trail.The view from the top is breathtaking!
If you prefer a more relaxing form of self-care, the Bridge Road Shops are more your speed. This quaint area of the city is home to the most unique boutiques in the area. Yarid’s Shoes is a family owned and operated shoe store established in 1918. They offer the finest collection of footwear, handbags, scarves and jewelry for ladies and gentlemen. Yarid’s also carries smashbox cosmetics and butter LONDON nail polish.

No trip to South Hills is complete with stopping by Lola’s for pizza and sangria. Lola’s isn’t your typical pizzeria. This charming restaurant offers gourmet brick oven pies such as Fig Jam & Rosemary and Spicy Shrimp & Sausage. Top off the meal with homemade gelato from nearby Caffé Romeo.
