    5 Amazing Date Ideas in Charleston

    Taking time off to spend quality time with your significant other should always be a top priority. However, if you have been together for quite a while, it is more challenging to break out of the box and be more romantic with the surprises. Also, with both of you having busy schedules, you might even find it difficult to find a common time. Still, you should not neglect to spend some alone time with him or her. Get out of the usual dinner, movie, drinks, and repeat cycle. Although these are your safest bet to simply enjoy each other’s company, there are other things you can do that are beyond predictable. Here are some amazing date ideas if you are looking for some in Charleston.

    1. Have a “drunch”

    A “drunch” is basically a drunk brunch. Instead of getting dinner then getting drinks, why not get drunk first then get some bacon and eggs. You can drink the night away and then in the morning, go to your favorite brunch place for some coffee and toast while welcoming the nice Saturday morning sun.

    2. Have a short trip

    A road trip should not always be time-consuming. You can take a quick drive and spend the night at a historic bed and breakfast in Charleston. In the morning, you can walk around the city to revel in its rich culture and heritage. Of course, don’t forget to take some photos.

    3. Go around a bookstore

    If you are bookworms, why not spend a nice afternoon roaming around the bookstore? You can walk through the aisles of your favorite literature and buy some books you can read later. If you like, you can even spend the evening after at a library. However, this might require you to have some quiet time, so if you want to talk, go to the bookstore.

    4. Be like tourists in your hometown

    Go around town and do what tourists would often do and eat at places where they would usually eat. Visit a nice museum nearby and then have some lunch at a hip bistro. Visit a popular landmark and have your photos taken. Better yet, take a lot of selfies.

    5. Get a couple’s massage

    Relax with your loved one by signing up for a couple’s massage. If you are not into that, you can go for a mud wrap or even just a sauna. There are spas that offer private rooms for couples so you can share a sauna together. After this, you won’t only feel a lot closer to him or her, you’ll feel totally recharged. Then, you will surely have a great sleep the night after that.
