World's Most Romantic Cities

Slide 19 of 26

Charleston, SC, USA

Why go: Steeped in Civil War history, Charleston is synonymous with Southern charm. But thanks to superb restaurants, well-curated boutiques and terrific bars, antebellum architecture is only part of the city’s considerable appeal.

Where to stay: High ceilings and four-poster beds characterize the rooms at Planters Inn, a 19th century Georgian building. Rooms from $214; plantersinn.com.

Where to eat: At Husk, chef Sean Brock has revolutionized Southern cooking with his focus on obsessively local, heirloom ingredients.
