Romantic Weekend Getaway on a Budget

Hello!

I am planning a weekend trip in Feb 2012 for our 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend and I need some suggestions on places to stay, things to do, and places to eat without breaking the bano. I'm in open book!

What weekend? The Southeastern Wildlife Expo is the third weekned of the month, and it will be very busy, which means room rates will be higher. There's a lot to see and do with the Expo, but if that type of thing doesn't interest you, you might want to choose another weekend. Info on SEWE at http://www.sewe.com/.

The SEWE weekend is a nightmare for anyone who's not here for SEWE. Lodgings might already be sold out. Think twice!

Just a thought, Betty. Just down the road from Charleston is Beaufort, which is like a small version of Charleston - very historic with great restaurants and nice lodging options, particularly among B&Bs. From Beaufort, you can easily enjoy a day in Charleston (75 min) as well as Savannah (60 min). Beaufort itself can be enjoyed for the day. From Richmond, Beaufort is about 6-7 hours away and is only 30 minutes further in the car than Charleston is from that direction.

More info on Beaufort:

Beaufort would be lovely for a romantic break, as would Savannah.

Another possibility is to stay at one of Charleston area beaches. Folly Beach and Isle of Palms are only a 20 minute drive from Charleston's historic district; rental rates at the beaches will be low in February ... even during SEWE. And, even during February, walking the beaches is extremely romantic.
