America’s Most Romantic Winter Destinations
Home of the suave Rhett Butler from “Gone with the Wind”, the place is such that you would be forgiven if you thought at first glance that you had traveled back in time. The gas lamp-lit streets at night, horse-drawn carriages and the antebellum architecture will transport you back to 19th century. However, heritage is just one of the aspects of Charleston, which also boasts of new-age restaurants, fascinating shops, contemporary art galleries and the world-class Spoleto Festival. History buffs should head to Fort Sumter, where the first shot of the War between the States was fired. When you don’t want to do anything in particular, head to any of the beach towns including Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palm and Folly Beach and just enjoy the sun and the surf.
