In The Mood For Love

by Danielle Stein

For the couple who think that chivalry died with King Arthur:

Charleston, South Carolina
Think holding hands is mushy? That opening doors for each other is antiquated? That kissing in the middle of a sidewalk—especially in the rain—is something that only happens in black-and-white movies? Think again. By the time you leave America's most civil city, you'll be out-charming the likes of Clark Gable. It's the inevitable effect of those sprawling plantations, intricate gardens, and historic Southern mansions, all framed by precious details like Spanish moss and wrought-iron gates. The grand canopy beds at the 19-room, antique-studded John Rutledge House Inn—the only residence of a U.S. Constitution signer to become a hotel—add to the fairy tale. And, of course, it wouldn't be an authentic experience without the food: Anson Restaurant is a Charleston classic, serving delights like barbecue lamb crusted with pecans and a fried pork chop with collard greens. Go ahead, revel in the wonderful, old-school decadence.
