Great, thanks for the tip, I'll look out for it.

I'm with you. We scrapped our plans to go to Chicago for a few days this summer in order to save for the honeymoon ($$ and vacation days!).

Great choice. There's a ton of stuff to do and see in Charleston, from plantations to naval museums to historic houses to Ben Silver. The dining is fantastic. Hymans is a Charleston institution, and well worth a visit, but there are better places for food and ambience. I highly recommend Anson and Slightly North of Broad. And as for romance -- you can't do any better than some of the B&Bs.

Isn't Duck a beach town? You might get bored there quickly.

Valldemossa on Mallorca is beautiful! A small town and really romantic, not that much tourists either. Or else I would recommend something exotic like Seychells or something like that.

Co-sign on Anson. Also check out Hominy Grill for grits.

I just got back from a trip to Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City. The weather was fucking rubbish in the first two. Almost as bad as down here, but in dense cities. Quebec was more or less pleasant, barely, (temperature wise.)

We found Quebec a bit more charming than Montreal, and I think for a short trip, during which the fact that there is less to do than in Montreal won't come into play, Quebec would be the way to go with its Old World atmosphere.

All that said, I am almost certain that all of the above would be ifinitely more enjoyable in the cooler months.

Anyway, I know you've made your choice Odoreater, but that's just my $.02 FWIW to anyone else.

I say go to St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Its a gorgeous island in the southern part of the chain with absolutely breathtaking scenery. Two of the most romantic and "honey-moon suitable" spots would be: 1 - Ladera St. Lucia - http://www.ladera.com/ 2 - L'Anse Chastanet -- http://www.ansechastanet.com/

Well, I just got back from my getaway to Charleston and Savannah and I have to say that it was amazing. The seafood at Hymans was amazing as was the food at most of the places I ate (though, I'm not a big fan of grits). I especially had a great time in Savannah - a much more laid back and "fun" city than Charleston IMO. There was actually a t-shirt that kind of described things perfectly. It read:

"In Atlanta they ask you what you do for a living;
In Charleston they ask you who your grandmother was;
In Macon they ask you what church you go to;
In Savannah they ask you what you'll have to drink."

Anyway, it was a great trip in two of America's great cities and I'd love to visit them both another time.

Yeah one of my favorite things at Hymans was the garlic butter clams, which I think are the best I've had anywhere.

The South must be the only place where an "aristocracy" has developed.

New York's Old Line and Boston's Brahmins don't quite have that decadence to qualify as aristocrats.

You seem to have gone to two cities in which you enjoyed yourself and that is what is great.

Ibiza, Czech, whatever, they are all great, but you had the opportunity to visit the right place with the right person.

For that I applaude you. Special people are more rare than special places.

Cheers,
