“The South is romance, isn’t it? Its undeniable charm, its insouciance overlaying a compelling passion. Almost anywhere you go in the South you’ll find romantic vibes emanating from all around. All you have to do is relax a minute and feel them.” – Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The Most Romantic Cities List Includes Charleston, S.C.
There are “certain places that unquestionably vibrate more alluringly than most,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which recently ranked Charleston, South Carolina, among “the five most romantic cities” in the South. The Battery, White Point Gardens, and Waterfront Park are named as “must see” landmarks, while a carriage ride is recommended as the best way “to give ‘The Holy City’ a good look over.” Their pick for the “can’t miss” place to stay in Charleston? Planters Inn, the intimate hotel nestled in “an elegant building dating from 1844 in the city’s historic district just a half-mile from the Waterfront Park.”
Located in the picturesque epicenter of the city with “romantic vibes emanating from all around,” the iconic Planters Inn is surrounded by “ornate historic architecture,” parks, and cobblestone streets—underpinnings of Charleston’s evocative appeal. The 64-room luxury hotel is South Carolina’s sole member of Relais and Châteaux, the exclusive collection of award-winning boutique hotels and renowned restaurants located in the world’s most sought after destinations.
For travel connoisseurs who appreciate the finer things in life, the Planters Inn Romantic Getaway Package offers an opportunity to experience Charleston’s grandeur and style. The tailored experience includes chilled champagne, a private carriage tour through the Historic District, and more!
Charleston’s Waterfront Park is an inviting 12-acre public space located a short stroll from Planters Inn. This popular park offers panoramic views of Charleston’s scenic harbor.
Cobblestone streets contribute to the romantic appeal of Charleston and provide the perfect backdrop for memorable travel photos.
