Not a town, but Hilton Head island is gorgeous!  So is Tybee Island right outside of Savannah.  🙂

Just cities, or small towns as well? My parents grew up (and met, and fell in love) in Washington, Georgia, which has a gorgeous historic district. Tons of antebellum homes to admire and tour if they’re open. It was the first town or city to be named after George Washington (in 1780).

Monticello/Madison GA, Senoia, GA (I don’t know about venues though), there are beautiful historic homes in Eufala, AL but again, I don’t know about venues.  The Partridge Inn in Augusta GA used to be wonderful although I haven’t been there for years.  Hmm…I’ve got to think a little more about this.

Wilmington, North Carolina! It’s my hometown. Beach, historic downtown on the river, lots of great restaurants and shopping, horse drawn carriage rides, and a battleship. Plus, very near to Bald Head Island…a small island you can take a ferry to, and then drive golf carts around it (no cars!).

St. Simons Island, Georgia; New Bern, North Carolina; St. Augustine, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina (a bigger city of course, but beautiful)

Dahlonega, GA.  It’s a former gold mining town, with a pretty little square in the north GA mountains.  Also, Abbeville, SC.  My friends lived there for awhile, and it was pretty adorable.  Very small.

St. Augustine, FL.  Love this town!  Very romantic, historic, Spanish vibe there.  (Although, I do lvoe Savannah, GA too!)
