    Southern Weekend Getaways for Couples

    When it comes to planning a romantic getaway, Charleston and other places like the Smoky Mountains are the perfect places to spend time together. Getting a list of some of the best southern places to relax and unwind with your special someone will help you to plan your next getaway.


    Charleston, South Carolina


    This historic city is full of cobbled streets, charming restaurants, classic bed and breakfasts and carriage rides. It is easy to find something to do when you spend a weekend here. Buy something nice from a shop on King street or take in lunch or dinner at one of the many storied restaurants in the city.


    Smoky Mountains


    Spend a weekend hiking, checking out waterfalls, splashing in creeks and exploring lush greenery in the Smoky Mountains. You can opt to camp in a tent or rent a cabin in the area. The choices are endless and there are a number of things you can do in the mountains together that allow you to bond and make memories.


    Orange Beach, Alabama


    This southern city is home to amusement park rides, Gulf breezes, white sandy beaches, fishing and other water sports, golf and a lazy river. Spend your afternoons engaging in a number of activities and then relax during the evening at a laidback restaurant or checking out one of the many big-name concerts that commonly grace the area.


    Shenandoah National Park


    This national park is just an hour from the nation’s capitol, but it gets fewer visitors than other parks in the area. This means more privacy while you and your significant other are frolicking through the forest. You can enjoy a variety of winding trails, mountain vistas and tumbling waterfalls.


    Nashville, Tennessee


    Nashville is a city that everyone should see at least once in their life, so using it for a romantic getaway is the perfect option. Check out world-class shopping and lunch eateries during the day while you roam the city. At night, grab dinner at one of many famous restaurants and be sure to check out a local music show.


    Keewaydin Island, Florida


    This is an island that you can only reach by boat, making it the perfect place for a relaxing and quiet romantic getaway for two. Spend your days relaxing on white sandy beaches and enjoying the pristine warm water. You can enjoy boating and a variety of water sports. Indulge in tropical cuisine and enjoy a number of colorful cocktails.


    As you can see, a romantic getaway in Charleston and other southern cities is just what you need. A quick weekend away allows you to reignite your romance and bond with your significant other.
