    Four Romantic Activities to Impress Your Valentine

    February is a great time to visit a bed and breakfast in Charleston, South Carolina. Usually, this gorgeous city is full of tourists; however, spring tends to be a little quieter. The scenic ocean views are perfect for creating romantic moments and there are plenty of activities to do around town. Before booking a B & B in Charleston, explore some of these unique activities for Valentine’s Day.

    Train for a 5K

    One of the biggest events in February is Cupid’s Chase, a 5K marathon through the city. Many tourists travel to the area just to run through the city. While this can be great for sports enthusiasts, casual runners can enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the competition. Training for the competition can also be a great way to bond, before you go.

    Go on an Art Walk

    The French Quarter is known for its artistic charm and boutique shopping. Among the historical buildings, couples will find several one-of-a-kind art galleries. If they don’t know where to start, going on an art walk or historical tour can help. Art walks are specifically designed to take people past many of the city’s icons and some of the most popular galleries in the area.

    Stay in a Historical Bed and Breakfast

    This town is known for its quaint historical buildings and southern hospitality. A stay in one of the many bed and breakfasts here can be an adventure. Enjoy plush amenities and the tranquility of a private room. This is a great choice for those wanting to experience more of the local culture while creating a unique, memorable experience.

    Explore an Outdoor Park

    While February can still bring cold weather, many of South Carolina’s favorite parks and beaches are still open. Taking a long walk over the bridge at sunset can be the perfect way to end a day. If it’s too chilly to visit Sullivan’s Island or Pickett Bridge, try venturing a little more inland. Shaded parks like Cypress Gardens are great for cooler days.

    If nothing stood out on this list, try playing the trip by ear. Sometimes, some of the best memories are forged when exploring a city with no set agenda. Walk the streets of the French Quarter until finding a historical tour or resting at a delicious café. Another option is to simply enjoy the amenities of the bed and breakfast. Comfortable beds are perfect for resting up before the 5K. Look for something centrally-located, putting most tourist destinations within walking distance. This will give the vacation a more relaxed tone, allowing the couple to truly take in all of the sights and sounds of the city.
