Pawleys Island, SC

The Pawleys Island area is a great destination for the ecotourist. The area includes Brookgreen Gardens, Huntington Beach State Park and numerous bike trails. Shopping is abundant at The Hammock Shops and Inlet Square Mall. The Murrells Inlet Marshwalk is a great spot for waterfront dining and nightlife. This “arrogantly shabby” region has both adventure and relaxation covered.

Georgetown, SC

Home of the South Carolina Maritime Museum and The Rice Museum, a trip to historic Georgetown can be educational and fun. Stroll along the Harborwalk and shop for local artwork. Dine on delicious homemade food at quaint restaurants. Georgetown is a quiet town with numerous indoor activities, so it may be a good place to visit on a rainy vacation day.

Charleston, SC

Take a haunted jail tour or visit the USS Yorktown. Explore the grounds of a plantation or shop the open-air markets. Have a local artisan craft you a basket. Dine on fresh seafood while listening to local musicians. Charleston has attractions that will appeal to both young and old. The rich history and culture of the city makes it well worth the drive.

Florence, SC
