If you're in the mood for a beach, historical tours and amazing food, but don't want to leave the country (or fly the eight plus hours to Hawaii), check out Charleston, South Carolina. This beautiful and historic city is made for romance and offers amazing attractions and cheap food.
In addition to plenty of nearby free beaches, like Folly, Isle of Palms and Kiawah Island, Charleston also has other free sights, right in the city. The Charleston City Market, one of the oldest in the country, is open daily and offers hundreds of handmade items from local vendors. You also can visit Battery Park, which offers breathtaking views of the ocean as well as many beautiful trees and historic homes.
For an authentic taste of Charleston, hit up the Charleston Cafe, located right outside the city in Mt. Pleasant. Here you can find Southern favorites, like fried green tomatoes and grits, all day for an affordable price. Stay at the Hampton Inn in the historic district (on Meeting Street) to be within walking distance of all the sites, food and shopping.
