3 Reasons Why Bluffton Is One of the Most Romantic Getaways in S.C.
1. Stunning Scenery
If you like sweeping marsh views, beach sunsets (or sunrises), and abundant wildlife, you will love Bluffton. Our charming town is conveniently located between Hilton Head, S.C., Savannah, GA, and Beaufort, S.C., but the real draw of Bluffton is the thriving estuary ecosystem that surrounds it. In fact, you can catch incredible views of the majestic May River just steps away from Old Town Bluffton Inn! Words can’t describe the beauty that awaits in the Church of the Cross’ waterfront backyard, but all we’ll say is that it’s an ideal place to pop the question. If your significant other prefers walking barefoot in the sand, head to one of Hilton Head’s beaches (a quick 25-minute drive).
2. Top-Tier Date Night Restaurants
The best part of staying in Bluffton with your sweetheart? The array of fabulous date-night restaurants! This is especially true if you’re surprising him or her with a stay in Old Town Bluffton. Here in The Promenade, there are countless romance-ready restaurants. If you’re staying with us at Old Town Bluffton Inn, you’ll be able to walk to The Bluffton Room, Calhoun Street Tavern, FARM Bluffton, Agave Sidebar, or The Pearl Kitchen and Bar with ease. After a delicious meal and a drink or two, there’s nothing better than taking a stroll (whether it’s back to the inn, down to the river for a sunset, or to a nearby art gallery).
3. Charming Small-Town Events
No matter what time of year the two of you visit, there’s something fun happening in town. If you’re coming in the spring, try to plan your trip around the Mayfest: One of Old Town Bluffton’s most popular street festivals. You’ll love strolling down a sunny street, stopping to sample local treats, and listening to live music together. A summertime visit calls for tickets to the Beaufort Water Festival, where you can browse local art and celebrate all things summer in the South. Visit in the fall and attend the Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival, a multi-day, cultural event hosted right here in The Promenade. Finally, if you’re planning a cozy winter trip to Bluffton, check out the Concours d’Elegance, a world-class festival that entails much more than classic cars. The signature parade of cars even passes right by the inn!
No matter what you and your significant other choose to do while you’re in town, one thing is for sure: You need to book a stay at Old Town Bluffton Inn! There’s no doubt that this brand-new, luxurious addition to The Promenade is the most convenient, romantic place to stay in town.
