There are many options in the world to choose from, but none will quite impart the Southern charm and hospitality that these cities in the lower half of the US will.


Memphis, Tennessee

Sure, Memphis houses for sale are a great draw to the area thanks to the affordability, but if you only want to be there for a spell, think about taking a romantic getaway to the Birthplace of Rock n Roll.


There’s plenty to do no matter what your passions are as a couple. Music lovers can tour the famed Sun Studio or check out Elvis Presley’s Graceland.

Those who love arts can catch a show at the Orpheum Theatre or check out the stunning sounds of Opera Memphis.


The Victorian Village is a romantic place for a stroll with its French Victorian architecture and historic mansions. BackBeat Tours offers guided walking trips for everything from Beale Street to a ghost tour.


There are plenty of places to tuck into a romantic meal, like the fine-dining experience at Flight or the cozy space at Acre. Hop aboard the Memphis Riverboat for a two-hour cruise on the Mississippi that has food and fun in the form of a BBQ buffet and blues band.


Savannah, Georgia

Savannah is a picture-perfect destination thanks to its Spanish moss and oak trees. There are cobblestone streets lined with pastel homes, and the walkable city will have you experiencing an array of restaurants, shops, and galleries.


Active couples will want to check out Tybee Island, a 20-mile drive from the city’s historic district that has jet skiing, kayaking, and a dolphin tour.

Forsyth Park in the historic district has an iconic fountain that makes for a perfect photo opp, and River Street winds along the Savannah River for stunning water views.


Travel the cobblestone streets on a horse-drawn carriage or take a trolley tour through the neighborhood.


Have a romantic evening at The Grey, housed in an art deco Greyhound Bus terminal, or eat at Alligator Soul Restaurant, a farm-to-table locale that showcases the best of local fare.


New Orleans, Louisiana

If you’re looking for a lively honeymoon, The Big Easy is the place to go.


This thriving city has many romantic restaurants to dine in, like the famed Commander’s Place or French bistro La Petite Grocery. Even the bars have an air of love about them, like the tapas-serving Elysian or French Quarter’s Effervescence. You can even take a trip at the Carousel Bar & Lounge, the city’s only rotating bar.

There’s live music to experience every night of the week at places like The Howlin’ Wolf and the House of Blues.


The 13-block stretch of Bourbon Street sits at the heart of the charming French Quarter, a haven of nightlife. Visit Marie Laveau’s House of Voodoo for a unique experience with the spiritual, grab a drink at The Cat’s Meow, or dine on a balcony at Pier 424 Seafood Market Restaurant.


The Garden District is the perfect spot to look at quaint cottages and lush landscapes and learn the history of the area.
