    5 Reasons to Make Charleston Your Romantic Destination

    Charleston is for lovers! Lovers of food, art and culture that is… But Charleston is also an ideal atmosphere for romance. The following are just a few reasons why you should visit with your special someone soon.

    1. Good Food

    We rave about local restaurants all the time, but the fact that Charleston has good food certainly bears repeating. Charleston is renowned for seafood and traditional “Lowcountry” cuisine, but the area offers a variety of internationally inspired concepts as well. You can peruse some of our favorite restaurants at 10best.com.

    2. Free Entertainment

    When visitors come to Charleston they expect to spend some money. And while it is nice to splurge on downtown lodging or a five-star meal, not everything on your itinerary should cost a fortune. We recommend that guests stroll along the battery, visit Waterfront Park or take a short drive to one of four local beaches. Click for even more wallet-friendly ideas.

    3. Live Music

    Charleston is home to some talented musicians, and it is a popular stop for national artists as well. Bars and music halls feature live shows every weekend, and there are plenty of week night shows as well. For details about upcoming shows, contact one of our favorite venues or visit eventful.com.

    4. Rich History and Culture

    When you do visit Charleston, we hope that you will stay with us! The Governor’s House Inn is conveniently located to local attractions, but more importantly, it’s a unique way to experience a piece of Charleston (and American) history. You can learn even more about Charleston culture by taking a tour. Click to peruse the most popular tour providers.

    5. Relaxed Atmosphere

    Charleston is a great place to slow down and take a breath. When staying downtown, everything you need is a short walk (or pedi cab ride) away. Charleston boasts an abundance of outdoor dining options (roof top bars, sidewalk cafes and restaurant patios), which are perfect for people watching, and Conde Nast named the city “friendliest” in America last fall.

    Plan a Romantic Getaway

    The Governor’s House Inn offers a special Romantic Getaway package that includes carriage tour tickets and a gift certificate to the critically acclaimed Charleston Grill. It’s a great way to sample some of the reasons why we love Charleston, and we hope to see you soon!
