Romance thrives in Savannah, one of the best preserved cities in the South, where couples can take a jaunt back in time through its Antebellum mansions, cobblestone streets, and scenic public squares. There are also great dining options -- especially for seafood and barbecue fare -- as well as plenty of opportunities to hike, picnic, swim, and fish nearby. Some of our favorite hotels are prime spots for nurturing romance; check them out here:
Comprised of two historic mansions surrounded by lush foliage, the Gastonian has the B&B feel down to a tee. Each of the 17 rooms features antique furniture and a working fireplace, and free breakfast is served every morning, either downstairs or directly in your room. This upscale B&B lacks the amenities of larger hotels -- there is no fitness center and no elevator -- but modern perks like free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs make this 19th-century property feel up to date.
