Williamsburg, Smithfield, VA, both have pretty old historic areas too, there both within Hampton Road as well.

Sarasota is really nothing like Charleston or Savannah.


Also, I've seen a few people mentioning St. Augustine... St. Augustine is a neat town for sure, but it's not very similar to Charleston or Savannah. First, it was Spanish and not English, which makes more of a difference than you might think. Second, the Spanish never really developed St. Augustine. The historic section is just a few streets and that's it. It's too bad it wasn't developed more or it could be spectacular now, but as it stands there's just not much there.

Based on what I know, Wilmington is probably the closest thing to Charleston and Savannah. Annapolis could be considered similar too, but it's small and it's hard to say whether that's really southern or not.

In North Carolina, you should visit Edenton and Manteo. Both are historic small towns and aren't far from Norfolk. There's also New Bern a little further south, about two hours east of Raleigh.
