South Carolina

If you know only a few things about South Carolina, the two most important items to remember are beaches and golf. Hilton Head, a top island vacation off the shores of the South Carolina coast, is the dream vacation of sales people awarded a trip, doctors holding their annual conference, and vacationers just looking to sink their feet into a few cubic yards of the 12 miles of sand that stretch along its shores. It features close to 25 championship golf courses, just starters for a South Carolina vacation.

While Hilton Head island is a destination favorites, mainlanders often choose to stay at Myrtle Beach. Also a golf destination, the soft sand beaches melt your cares away, along with the theme park attractions, shopping, dining and host of activities that welcome tourists from afar.

South Carolina’s major cities–Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head Island, Columbia and Greenville–all offer different experiences from one another. The history of the area is its pride, along with its natural assets such as its coastline, museums, architecture, art and culturual heritage.

Getting to South Carolina’s hot spots is easy for those living in the southeast states such as Florida and North Carolina, but many of us who want to visit must find out what airports are available for flying to this much talked about destination. Charleston international Airport is a best bet for booking flights with overs six major airlines having routes there. Another option within reach is Charlotte/Douglas international Airport in Charlotte, NC. It offers a different list of major airlines serving the Rock Hill, SC region.

If you are an avid golfer, you simply haven’t lived until you play at least a handful of the courses in the state that boasts probably as many golf courses per capita as any place in the U.S.

With mild year-round weather, many tourists prefer visiting before the summer heat or after summer is officially over when kids go back to school around early September. More availability for accommodations and often milder weather greets travelers who prefer less humidity and heat, better tee times and less crowds.
