You don’t have to fly to Europe to experience its beauty. It seems like everyone I know has been in Europe these past few months. However, that trip is not in my budget these days! But the good news is you can still get the look and feel of several European cities and regions right here in the United States. And no, I’m not telling you to visit Paris, TX, or Rome, GA. Though I’m sure they are wonderful places to visit. We can do more than just a name! In fact, you don’t have to travel far at all. One South Carolina town is featured on House Beautiful‘s list of towns Straight Out Of Europe.
Even as someone who hasn’t visited Europe it’s obvious even through photos how much more beauty and culture is in the architecture and towns. This is obviously due to the rich history of the cities and countries. The charm is quaint and iconic and even when relocating many immigrants chose to bring the style of their homeland with them. We are very lucky to have towns all across the county with influences from places like England, Spain, Italy, Poland, The Netherlands, France, Greece, Germany, and more.
Even if you’re idea of a vacation leaves you stuck in the country you can still revel in the European style. (And get that perfect Instagram photo). You can even make the quick drive to South Carolina to feel like you’re in Europe. Keep reading to see the 35 towns and cities featured on House Beautiful‘s list.
Travel + Leisure Ranked The Top 10 South Carolina Resort Hotels
Craving the perfect weekend getaway? What I wouldn’t give for a relaxing weekend. Travel & Leisure recently ranked their Top 10 South Carolina Resort Hotels. All ten of these are the epitome of luxury and relaxation. The list was based on reader votes in the publication’s World’s Best Awards. The hotels were rated on facilities, location, service, food, and overall value. South Carolina has miles of coastline so it’s no surprise that the vast majority of hotels included are waterfront. Nine of ten are located on the water to be exact.
Hilton Head was the leader with five of the ten hotels located on the island. Other locations represented include Kiawah and Bluffton. Whether you are traveling with the family or just a relaxing adults-only getaway you’ll be sure to enjoy these resorts. They feature all the amenities you could hope for with golf, spas, beaches, restaurants, and more. All of these reasons keep visitors coming back year after year to enjoy the South Carolina Lowcountry.
There are so many spots I’d love to travel to, though looking at photos of these gorgeous resorts may have catapulted several of them to the top of my list. Have you stayed at any of them? Which is your favorite?
