South Carolina
The majority of visitors to South Carolina come for the coastal beaches, historic cities, and golf. In Myrtle Beach, it’s possible to tee off on a different world-class course each day for weeks, although the state’s most celebrated links are on Kiawah Island, a host to the PGA Championship. Charleston is the state’s culinary hub, and home to dozens of award-winning restaurants, chefs, and food personalities. Many visitors come here just to eat, filling in time with carriage tours and day trips to the neighboring beach communities. History buffs can’t miss a day trip to Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, while further afield, numerous Civil and Revolutionary War sites and battlefields dot the state. For many, the state’s highlights lie at a roadside produce stand or BBQ joint along a country drive, or in idyllic small towns like Beaufort, Conway, and Aiken.
