@Future.McGuffee:  Savannah, Tybee Island, Hilton Head will be all be fairly close to you depending on where you live in Georgia. I’m in Athens, and Asheville is only about three hours from here as well (the others are more like 4.5-5 hours). For a low cost honeymoon, I would figure out the one thing that is most important to you (beach, awesome restaurants, really awesome place to stay, spa things, etc) and book around that.


There’s also always vrbo.com for renting out small houses or condos or cabins for cheaper than a lot of hotel rooms.

@Future.McGuffee:  thanks for the UPDATE (Reply # 15)

Savannah & Charleston are both magnificent destinations… and very romantic… but not cheap.

If you want to save some money, I’d look at Myrtle Beach… there are so many Hotels there that due to competition deals can be found.  AND there are some great Apartment-Hotel / Condos too… so you could have a place to “spread out in” if you are going to be there a weekend / couple days / week.

MB is a ton of fun… lots to see and do.

And Historic Georgetown and Charleston is just 1 and 2 Hours to the south respectively… so a manageable day outing to go see em, and not spend the crazy money they want there for Hotel Rates compared to MB

In Georgetown you want to drive the town’s streets and see all the houses that date back well into the 1700s that survived the Civil War, and Sherman’s March (he didn’t burn down Georgetown)

Beyond Charleston, you might want to check out the incredible Plantation Row that exists out along the Ashley River as well.  Drayton Hall is one of the oldest standing plantations in America (escaped Sherman’s march as well)… but some of the others nearby have other elements that are worth a look see as well like the magnificent gardens at Magnolia Plantation… or the slave quarters at Boone Hall etc.

Here are some links that you might find helpful in your reading / research…

Wikipedia – Georgetown, SC = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgetown,_South_Carolina

Wikipedia – Charleston, SC = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charleston,_South_Carolina

Google Maps (MB – Georgetown – Charleston) = http://goo.gl/maps/w29LL

Hope this helps,

PS… You can PM me if you’d like some more info about MB… and some ideas / recommendations on where to stay, what to do etc (Mr TTR and I are in MB a couple times of year)
