South Carolina
Over 200 miles of beaches draw families to South Carolina each year, with Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head the most popular beach vacation destinations. In the former, you’ll find hundreds of attractions drawing you away from the sand, from Ferris wheels to go-kart tracks to putt-putt golf to helicopter rides, accompanied by all-you-can-eat buffets and massive outdoor shopping complexes. Hilton Head’s allure is more laid-back and focused on the beach and activities like tennis, golf, and swimming. A robust state park system also attracts families, from beachfront camping on Hunting Island to the scenic mountain trails at Table Rock and Caesars Head.
