With its graceful antebellum homes and oak trees dripping in Spanish moss, few places in America are as dreamy as the Deep South. This corner of the country gave us such legendary love stories as Gone With The Wind, so there's nowhere better to inspire your belle or beau with a Valentine's break. Among the most romantic city-break spots are Savannah, New Orleans and Charleston - but why choose one when a new itinerary from Bon Voyage combines all three? The tailor-made Three Southern Belles multi-centre (new for 2019) takes in cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and all the other regional highlights - and better still, it's completely car-free, so there's no need to argue about who's driving.
The suggested 10-night holiday kicks off in Charleston, South Carolina - considered one of the USA's best small cities - where couples can fall in love both with each other and this genteel seaside city, which is best known for its foodie scene and yesteryear appeal. Spend three days here immersed in history and Southern charm before boarding a train to Savannah - ranked as one of the top 21 places to visit in 2019 by Bloomberg. From here, it's a short flight to New Orleans to end the experience in style among the Big Easy's beignets, bars and incredible live bands.
Along the way, this journey through three US states includes plenty of added extras such as walking tours in Savannah and Charleston, a Louisiana plantation home tour and a paddle-steamer cruise in New Orleans. The holiday costs from £2,195pp, including flights from London, Manchester or Glasgow, room-only accommodation, train transfers to Savannah, internal flights to New Orleans and various tours and activities.
