There is no question that Charleston is one of America's most beautiful and romantic cities.

From the cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages to the centuries-old architecture and lush gardens, Charleston has something to offer everyone who visits.

Here are just a few of the many things you can do if you have been planning a trip to Charleston, South Carolina for your next romantic getaway.

Take a romantic carriage ride through the city

Charleston Carriage Works offers tours of the historic district, and you can even choose to have a private tour for just the two of you. They vary in length, so you will need to find that out beforehand.

If you want to make it even more romantic for the both of you, you could think about taking one at sunset.

Stroll hand-in-hand through one of Charleston's many gardens

The Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is a must-see, and you can even take a boat ride through the Audubon Swamp Garden.

It is steeped in a lot of history, so if you both are history buffs who love to learn about the background of a city, then you may be interested to learn about the background of these gardens and what they stand for today.

Enjoy a romantic dinner at one of Charleston's many fine restaurants

Some of my favourites include Hank's Seafood Restaurant, FIG, and The Grocery. These restaurants may do a special romantic package for couples.

It would be best to check this out beforehand and book your spot on your vacation week before you travel. If they offer takeaway, you could order your food and go sit in one of Charleston's parks for an intimate dinner with a scenic view.

Take a leisurely stroll down Rainbow Row

This is one of Charleston's most iconic streets. Do not forget to stop and take a selfie in front of the colourful houses!

These homes did not initially look like this, in fact, they needed restoration in the 1930s and 40s, which is why they are a stand-out attraction. People still, to this day, have speculated why these houses were painted pastel colours.

Get out on the water with a romantic boat ride

Charleston Boat Tours offers several different options, including a sunset tour and a private charter.

If you do not fancy going in a carriage across the city, then opting for being out on the water is a great way to explore Charleston. You will be able to enjoy the harbour and have fun on the boat ride. Bring along a picnic so you can savour the calming waters with your lunch or dinner.

Spend a day exploring Charleston's historic district

This is the perfect place to watch the sunset and enjoy the views of the harbour if you want to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or just a chance to explore a beautiful city, Charleston is the perfect destination. There is something for everyone, and you are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

If you both have had this planned for a while or are looking to surprise your other half with a romantic visit, then the tips mentioned above will help you figure out what to do and where to go next.
