South Carolina’s Coastal Destinations
My first stop was the oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston. Pedestrian-friendly, Charleston boasts historic plantations and pre-Civil War homes, known as Antebellum houses, as well as top golf courses and restaurants, fun water sports on the beach, and reedy marshes and creeks. It's easy to see why it is one of the top destinations in America.
My next stop was Myrtle Beach, an exciting city with great shopping and modern attractions. I explored WonderWorks, an interactive science museum, as well as went zip lining, visited Ripley’s Aquarium, enjoyed plenty of waterfront dining and rode the famous Skywheel with brilliant views of the beautiful Atlantic coastline. Myrtle Beach also offers more than 100 great golf courses and a myriad of water sports for everyone to enjoy.
The last of my coastal cities to visit was Hilton Head Island, which is one of the most popular boating destinations in the United States. Hilton Head Island is known for its sustainable living and world-class golf at the famous Harbour Town Golf Links, which hosts South Carolina’s PGA Tour golf event, the RBC Heritage. Hilton Head Island offers a slightly more laid-back, upscale atmosphere that will leave you feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated.
