If you’re staying in Charleston from out of town, or you just want to turn your proposal into a romantic weekend getaway, try the Vendue. The Vendue is a lavish hotel located in downtown Charleston. Not only is the hotel itself magnificent, but it is also host to a rooftop hotel with a remarkable view of Charleston Harbor and the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. For an even more luxurious getaway, there is the Wild Dunes Resort. Located on the Isle of Palms just outside of Charleston, this resort has everything. Try one of the elegant dining choices nearby, enjoy a round of golf, and indulge in a spa treatment for two. Once you book your romantic package for two, the only thing you’ll need to worry about is finding a vintage engagement ring from Knox Jewelers.
Nothing exudes elegance, history, and beauty like the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Founded in 1676 and open to the public since the 1870s, the massive plantation has so much to offer no matter what kind of proposal you are looking for. The gardens themselves are lush and beautiful. Tour the plantation house and learn the rich history of the location; explore the gardens’ water features, flora, and bridges; and stop for lunch at the Peacock Café. Then take the woman of your dreams to one of the many beautiful locations on the property to give her the antique Knox Jewelers engagement ring you picked out just for her.
For the outdoorsy and adventurous types, there’s the view from the Jumping Off Rock in northern Pickens County, overlooking Lake Jocassee. The location was named one of National Geographic’s “World’s Last Greatest Places.” You will have to research the best way to get to the trails, as not all entrances are open year-round. It is a bit of a drive from Charleston, but completely worth it. You will not find a more romantic and intimate location than Jumping Off Rock and its stunning views of Lake Jocassee and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Whether you choose to have a traditional proposal or go to a unique location in Charleston, you will have no trouble finding a gorgeous and memorable place to ask her to be yours. Find your antique engagement ring with Knox Jewelers before you whisk her away on your romantic adventure.
