Most Romantic Spots in Charleston

It is well known that Charleston is a romantic city. The Notebook was filmed here, the sunsets will take your breath away and there's nowhere better for a candlelight dinner.  It can be overwhelming deciding what to include on your romantic getaway, so after chatting with the Charming Inns staff we have compiled what we believe to be the most romantic spots in Charleston.

For a stroll with a view:

Pitt Street Bridge - Make your way out to the Old Village in Mount Pleasant for an easy walk down Pitt Street. You'll get to admire the beautiful homes and if you time it right you'll see the most beautiful sunset. The end of the street is an old bridge with a stunning view of the Ravenel Bridge across the Cooper River. You might even get to watch a sunset. Waterfront Park - Dolphins might not make a moment more romantic but they definitely make it more memorable. You're likely to see a few of these majestic swimmers while looking out from the swings at Waterfront Park. Sunset is obviously prime time here but we would recommend sunrise. A smaller crowd and an equally beautiful scene.

For a sip:

Gin Joint - Quiet, dim lighting, and a cocktail based on your personality. This spot is a dream place to sit and enjoy tasty drinks with someone special. The Belmont - The seating is comfortable and intimate with classic black and white films projected on the wall removing you from present day in the best way. The drink list is impressive and you have seemingly endless options. Go before dinner to start your night off on the right foot.

For something a little different:

Riverdogs games - In the words of one of our employees, “How can you not be romantic about baseball?” The sun sets behind the right-field stands, and on Friday nights you get to enjoy a pretty spectacular fireworks show.  If you're hoping to make date night a little more casual without sparing any excitement this will be a favorite. The Piazza at John Rutledge House Inn - For a uniquely Charleston experience, head to the piazza at the John Rutledge House Inn. Here, guests sip sherry, gaze across Broad Street, and enjoy the same view that Mr. and Mrs. Rutledge enjoyed in the late 1700s when this house was built. Old school romance, at its finest.

For a bite:

Circa 1886 - Nestled behind the Wentworth Mansion in the restored carriage house is this inviting intimate dinner spot. Request a cozy booth and indulge in the chefs tasting menu for a truly unforgettable evening. You'll end your night out with the most delicious dessert you've ever tasted and we promise it will be a date to remember. While there are countless ways to celebrate a romantic weekend in Charleston, we encourage you to venture out and try something new! As a grand romantic gesture, the John Rutledge House Inn was built as a wedding gift. We can't think of a better place to celebrate with your loved one this Valentine's Day!
