We’re still celebrating Charleston being named the top city in America by Condé Nast Traveler, but the accolades don’t stop there!
U.S. News selected the top American honeymoon destinations, and Charleston was selected for the #8 position.
Says the magazine: Start your marriage off with a taste of authentic Hollywood romance (Gone with the Wind-style) in Charleston. This low-key South Carolina city pours on the Southern charm like gravy on biscuits: Gas lamp-lined cobblestone streets and antebellum architecture set the scene, while gourmet cuisine followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride will set the mood.
And if honeymoon plans include visits to local diners or dives, be advised: the lines outside several will soon grow longer. The Food Network came to Charleston a few months ago to film an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” The lively, spiky-haired host, Guy Fieri, visited several restaurants, including: Perfectly Franks, Tattooed Moose, Early Bird Diner, Glass Onion, Fuel, Dixie Supply Bakery & Café.
They’ll all be featured at some point, but the first Charleston episode featured Summerville’s Perfectly Frank’s. (aired 12/19). Be on the lookout for future features!
