Undoubtedly, Charleston is one of the most romantic cities in the United States. From carriage rides to sunset viewing, complete with dolphin sightings, the list of activities for couples seems endless. Many newlyweds choose to spend their first moments as a couple in the Holy City, and we love making their honeymoon memorable with a trip aboard the Palmetto with Sandlapper Tours. If you’re looking to spend a honeymoon weekend in Charleston to take in the beautiful scenery and southern charm, check out our must-do list of Charleston activities!
  1. Spend your time in a romantic hotel or a historic bed and breakfast. Getaways such as the French Quarter Inn or the Wentworth Mansion are the perfect spots for a luxury stay, or you can opt for a quaint bed and breakfast such as John Rutledge House Inn or 20 South Battery for a charming historic experience.
  2. Visit famous landmarks such as Charleston’s pineapple fountain or the 400-year-old Angel Oak tree on John’s Island. Be sure to bring along your camera for each photo opp!
  3. Spend a day with your toes in the sand. Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan’s Island are all within a 30-minute drive from the heart of Charleston. It’s worth building a beach day into your trip to relax on the coast.
  4. Take a stroll through downtown to meander the cobblestone streets, explore charming shops, and experience local eateries. King Street is a great place to start!
  5. Embark on a carriage ride to take in all of Charleston’s historic architecture and romantic views. We recommend an early morning or late night ride to avoid the heat.
  6. Climb aboard a sunset cruise with Sandlapper Tours to view the Charleston skyline from a different perspective. The Charleston harbor is a sunset viewing spot that cannot be beaten, and we have the perfect crew to take you. The cherry on top? You may even encounter some dolphins during your cruise!
