Florida has several. Check out Mount Dora, Micanopy, Monticello, DeFuniak Springs, Fernandina Beach, Stuart, Delray Beach, Sebring, Dunedin and Marianna.

You made me remember the weird, wonderful little village of Cassadaga, FL. Weird, wonderful little place, almost entirely populated by mediums.

Don't forget St. Augustine, and Rosemary Beach. South Florida is dotted with these towns from Fort Pierce to Miami, but because of their place in a large metro like South Florida, they tend to have areas of seediness, poverty, crime, and drug-use that isn't seen in the quaint towns in the less populated areas of Florida. Delray Beach is a great example of this, as is Fort Pierce.

I didn't forget St Augustine, I just thought it could be a little too touristy to be classified as "quaint". I love the town but it can get congested.

Glad you mentioned both Delray Beach and Dunedin. They're not on a lot of people's radar, but both are very charming and artsy communities.
Some other quaint FL towns: Cedar Key, DeLand and Apalachacola.

I think Charleston, SC is great, but a little too big to be quaint.
You can figure Charleston in that if you just figure in the downtown area.
