15 Most Romantic Getaways in South Carolina

Several years ago, I celebrated my anniversary in and around Beaufort, South Carolina, and had an amazing time exploring the area’s campgrounds, breweries, local shops, kayaking spots, and beach. This is just one example of the many lovely places around the state where you can plan a lovely trip for a honeymoon, anniversary, or much-needed getaway with your partner for no specific reason at all. If you don’t want to spend your nights at a campground like I did, you can book a cozy or luxurious room at a highly recommended hotel or resort instead. Here are some romantic getaways in South Carolina to inspire your next trip with the one you love.
