Hotel at a Glance: The Governor’s House Inn 

After crossing a veranda filled with white wicker furniture, you’ll enter the stately parlor of this Georgian mansion inn. Here hangs a portrait of a white-haired Edward Rutledge, the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence and former owner of the mansion. The historic four-star inn is located in the heart of Charleston and has garnered praise from Southern Living magazine.

  • Recent award: The hotel received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2014.
  • A hearty breakfast is whipped up by the innkeepers each day; try housemade orange-blossom french toast and eggs florentine.
  • Historical charm: Eighteenth-century four-poster beds give each individually decorated guest room a personality of its own.
  • Sip some sherry in the parlor in the evening.

Charleston, South Carolina: Civil War Monuments and Sophisticated Arts Scene

Charleston, South Carolina, was named one of the best historic destinations in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Georgian mansions line the waterfront, the spires of colonial-era churches punctuate the skyline, and horse-drawn carriages frequently clop along its cobblestone streets. You can get an added sense of the city’s history by visiting a number of preserved period buildings and national historic landmarks such as the Battery & White Point Gardens, a living Civil War museum with Confederate cannons and views of Fort Sumter, Charleston Harbor.

More recently, Charleston has merged its Old South identity with a strong arts-and-culture scene. The streets, once overrun with aristocrats, are now lined with top-tier art galleries and antique stores, and you can catch live jazz performances at night. Step out onto King Street to browse third-generation clothiers that have set up shop in historic landmark buildings.
